Love the chapter on the "Three Misleading Metaphors." "Praise Junkies" and "Unwanted Help" are also good. Some information dates this book, but the core concepts haven't changed -- small children don't need to be "taught" -- they are truly learning all the time. If you have children under the age of 7 or 8 you should read this book and throw way those ridiculous "teaching DVDs"! :)
