وجدت الكتاب تجارياً للغاية ، لم يحتوي بالنسبة لي على أية إضافة تربوية ، لم استمتع به ولم استفد منه

Berikut poin-poin bagus yang mel dapet dari bacaan yang remarkable ini...

penulis kawakan ini bahkan membutuhkan 30 tahun untuk mengembangkan kemahiran mengasuh secara positif yang tertuang dalam buku ini. 16 tahun sebagai penasihat, serta mempelajari situasi terutama dari problema para orangtua. 14 tahun untuk mengembangkan aplikasinya...

* Bagian penting dalam mengasuh anak adalah mencurahkan kasih sayang, waktu dan energi sepenuhnya. Kasih sayang adalah hal utama, tapi ternyata kasih sayang saj

كتاب جميل، ليس فقط لأنه يعلم كيف يجب أن نتعامل مع الأطفال، بل لأنه يفتح أعيننا على أنفسنا؛ كيف نشأنا يوم كنا أطفال! يساعد الإنسان على أن يراجع نشأته وتربيته ويكون أكثر تفهما لما لا يعجبه في تربيته وأقدر على معالجة أي آثار ظلت في نفسه من تلك المرحلة الأهم في حياة كل إنسان

I found some of his advice to be interesting, but he tends to go on and on in his writing and I found myself skipping over paragraphs because it seemed so repetitive. I do really like his steps for encouraging obedience from children...although he doesnt call it obedience really, he calls it childrens natural desire to please their parents. I have been discouraged lately as I hear my son mimic orders to me and I don't like it. So, following Dr. Gray's advice to ask "Would you....please?" brought ...more

This was highly recommended to me. However, so far, it hasn't given me any earth-shattering news. Don't beat your kids. (anyone surprised?) Then it has focused on parents focusing on the positives with their kids rather than the negative.

Okay, so I got through chapter 9 and just couldn't do anymore. This has good ideas, but it's all obvious. Don't beat your kids. Use positive messages instead of threats. Thanks- learned that in 101 of teaching. If I hadn't been a teacher, this would have been mu

Very good once he gets to the point!! I think this book should be summarized to half of it. Over 350 pages is too much for what he has to say. And the question" HOW do I do that."arises a lot while I'm reading. Maybe everything will come clear at the end. Otherwise there are a lot of important points about parenting I learned from here that I wouldn't have known elsewhere. I'm a Bit skeptical about the part about avoiding fear based methods,I think there should be at least a tiny part of it. The ...more

Thanks to my journal, I discover that I read some parenting books in the year 2008. But why???

I remember this to be a bulky book and I definitely can't remember all the principles that are shared until I read it again. Here are 5 messages to positive parenting.
1. It's okay to be different
2. It's okay to make mistakes
3. It's okay to express negative emotions
4. It's okay to want more. [Though I have an issue with this- if it's okay to want more, then how will I teach them contentment?] Maybe that

Interesting book with a lot of useful material here. The author draws from his extensive experience as a parent and also as a professional counselor. But note that they are not based on scientific or rigorously proven research. The messages are simple and explained with easy-to-follow explanation and practical examples. Some of the themes explained are the importance of time-outs, "five messages of positive parenting", and four temperaments of children. Sometimes sounds gimmicky and repetitive, ...more

I am still reading this book. I am not sure whatto say yet. It is new and different than other parenting books I have read and I like the direction it is going in. I want to talk about it more and think about it more but I need to read more!

My husband said when I mentioned one concept,"That is the opposite as the the other book we read!" I said,"I know, just go with it! It cannot hurt to try."

I still am going to get to this book but the one I am reading right now takes priority! (Hold Onto Your

I picked up this book b/c years ago I read a lot of his relationship books and found them to be spot-on - especially "Mars and Venus on a Date". This book has a lot of great things to say, although I didn't necessarily agree with everything. His explanations of time-outs are helpful and interesting. He also has a lot of insight into understanding your child's point of view. Like many other parenting books I've read, he seems to borrow heavily from "How to Talk So Kids Will Listen...", but it's s ...more

I was excited with this book first came out. I bought it and read it for one of my early childhood education courses (we had to focus on parent education). Some of the material is a repeat of topics we've learned but there were sections that I was very upset in reading, thinking how many parents will do this because he suggests it.

I spoke about this in my class and it really discouraged others from using his methods.

He suggests that when a child is upset by throwing a tantrum, to placed them i

I skimmed a lot, but appreciated the techniques in here. Skip this repetitive read, and give your kids 5 things:

1. Permission to be different, which enables children to discover, appreciate, and develop their unique inner potential and purpose.
2. Permission to make mistakes, which enables children to self-correct, learn from their mistakes, and achieve greater success.
3. Permission to express negative emotions, which teaches children to manage their emotions and develop a feeling awareness tha
Jun 26, 2012 Fanny rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
I felt quite disappointed and did not even finish reading this book. Some of the advice are interesting but others seem pretty unrealistic to me. I agree with Gray's approach of avoiding punishment, physical or psychological, but his method has not convinced me fully. The practical examples he gives on how to speak to children seem very unlikely to me. Furthermore, the book is quite repetitive and lengthy.

This is the single best parenting book I have ever read. I own it in paperback, and I bought the audio cd. I have it on my ipod, and try to listen to every 6 months or so. It is so fantastic, and so good about how to parent all different types of kids in a positive way with firmness, but not meanness. I really love this book, and highly recommend it to everyone who deals with children.

I wish someone had given me this book when I had my first child. This is one of the single best books on child rearing that I have read. It stresses what I find so powerful and important: keeping the preciousness of the child at the forfront of your mind (even when you want to throw them out the window!)

Was very helpful!
I don't agree though with some of the ideas but in general I really learned something that has helped me a lot when I first started teaching kg1s!
I highly recommend teachers and parents to go through it once at least!
Thank you Miss Mariam for recommending the book.

Around me I still see people treating children like they were treated this is a good insight into thinking about how they should be treated, that is all!

التربية هي التحدي الأصعب الذي أخوضه الآن .. وهذا الكتاب جعلني أفهم أطفالي أفضل .. جعلني أتذكر أنهم أطفال .. يخطؤون .. ينسون .. يتعلمون .. لكنهم دائما طيبون .. وليسوا سيئين .. وعلي أنا أن أفهمهم وأستمع إليهم .. وأهيء لهم البيئة التي تحفزهم للتعاون والتعلم والإبداع .. قد أعود لهذا الكتاب مرة أخرى لكي ألخص بعض النقاط المهمة فيه ...
توجد بعض الأفكار التي تفاجأت بها وهي فكرة الاستبعاد المؤقت في غرفة الطفل .. ما أعرفه أن هذه الطريقة تضر نفسية الطفل .. لكن الكاتب أشاد بها جدا وجعلها وسيلة إيجابية جدا لت

Is was good but dated. It was written in the 90's and reflected as such.

I think the book has good suggestions and helpful hints. the biggest problem I have while reading this was the fact that several times he stated that in the past or the children of today are different that years past and the things done in the past just would not work today, but were ok back then. I do not think that the developing mind has changed and I do not think the children of years past could not handle what he suggest. the concepts are things that we all can implement.

As I enjoyed Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus, I thought I would check this out. The techniques in this book are very good. I read this book over a year ago and wished I had brought it with me to Egypt, as I believe it could have helped with the transition period. Having implemented the techniques as I read the book, I could see the impact and improvement in my eldest son very quickly. Our relationship is so much better, as well as my understanding of how much my behaviour affects him, ...more

Modern mentality based on psychology for raising independent and emotionally intelligent children. I really liked the revolutionary and often interesting new methods put forward with compelling arguments in this book. My biggest gripe in this book is that it is often repetitive, giving the impression that there were no new ideas to be added. It would have been a better read if it was rearranged properly. There is still a lot of takeaways, once you can ignore the repetitions and get to the facts. ...more

Would love to give up sooner... But I bought this book so far. I am not myself when i read this book, neither was the example is special nor realistic in making the parent move as a leader. No age is specific addressed to the treatment, so that alone left me confuse. Hopeless. I realize....i'm just not one of those parents who could put up an effort to turned her head around at some methods that are simply wasn't in her traits.
