This is probably the best discipline book I have ever read. I am a child development major and worked as a preschool teacher for a few years and this book summed up all of the discipline techniques that I know about in one very simple easy to follow format. I think I read the thing in only a couple a days. I recommend this to anyone who spends time around children.

A good resource--the appendix catagorizes different behaviors and how to deal with differenct scenerios in a step by step manner. Will keep this book handy on my child rearing shelf.

This book seems so dorky, but I swear it is really helping us work through some discipline issues. We are using this book in our ECFE class right now.

This book was very helpful when I was learning new tools about how to discipline instead of accessing the blueprint that I was raised with.

I started reading this book twice and both times I could not get past the 1st chapter. It is not a big book, but also not enticing enough for me to read.
