Good overall book on parenting - I have read quite a few so there wasn't much new for me but I liked her approach in general. One complaint I had was that one of her long examples was about how to enforce that your kids make their bed even while respecting their right to their own space never gave any thought as to what reason to give your child as to why they should make their bed other than because the parent said so. This seemed counter to much of the rest of the book which emphasized choosing your battles and letting kids make their own decisions for things that don't threaten their safety.

I will say that I have already started trying out some of her approaches and there are a few that I would like to give a try (e.g, if my kids have an enounter that ends in tears and recriminations, once they are calmed down to ask them to work together to write down what happened).
