they don't have an "I wrote" option for reviews.

I wrote this when my 9yo was a baby and I still parent this way--all 5 of my children ages 11.5 to my 4yo twins. I'm currently working on a rewrite to update the book and add in things I've learned in the last 5 years. I suspect I'll like it even more :)

Revisions are necessary to Lutton’s book if she wants to be a respected by anyone. The most important of these is citing others for their work. It is terrible to see plagiarism so blatantly ignored.

One if my favorite parenting books. Not the top, but one I kept.

I think there were some good things in this book, but I am starting to feel like all the parenting books say one of two things: 1) Spanking is terrible and you should never do it if you want good children that love God and others and are not abusive parents when they grow ip. Instead you should reason with them and remain calm. 2) God tells us to spank, it's in the Bible. If you want kids that are good and love God you have to spank them so they learn.

This book falls into the first category.

This is a great book to really shake up how you view not only your relationship with your children, but to Christ, The Church, and your family.

Really painful to read, honestly. Couldn't get past the bad writing and total lack of editing. Getting rid of my copy asap.

Sound Christian principles, straight from the Bible, nonpunitive. What more could you ask for?
