|Great Book Jan 13, 2007|
|Even after the first chapter, I saw a difference on how my child responds and how I feel. Can't wait to finish the whole book!|
|I love this book and the multimedia version! Dec 4, 2006|
|This book is awesome. Lots of useful information. I also love the DVD version of this book that came with workbooks for group study. Seeing Dr. Leman speak was excellent.|
This book is worth the purchase, and if you can find it I also highly suggest the multimedia version made by Sampson Resources.
|Good Parenting Advice Aug 21, 2006|
|As an avid reader of parenting books (I have about 12 now), it's nice to find a system that truly is easy to implement. Positive and loving discipline is the message and it makes sense. No finger pointing here, just a lot of common sense and positive and useful perspective for raising respectful, responsible, loving, and hopefully happy children. I got this book on tape so I could listen to it at the gym or in the car which is great for busy moms who may not have time to "read" a book!|
|My life is so much easier now... Aug 8, 2005|
|This book has been such a huge help in my home. I am so much more confident in my parenting skills, and my 2 year old showed immediate improvement in her behavior. I can now discipline my child knowing that I will get results, that I'm doing what's best for her and that I'm not damaging her little psyche. |
I am not religious, but the religious references didn't bother me a bit. In fact, I can say that I was impressed with how Dr. Leman tied his religion into his discipline methods.
This book is worth every penny, and I only wish I had bought it sooner. I see people all the time now having difficulty with their children, and I just want to say "Buy this book!"
|Yeah for Dr. Leman!!! Feb 3, 2005|
|I love parenting books because they are always full of good ideas, even if you don't necessarily agree with everything in the book. THIS book, however, was fantastic. I'm a pretty easy-going person, so as long as their safety wasn't at risk, I would generally allow my kids to have way too many liberties. |
Dr. Leman describes pulling the rug out from under the little buzzards. If a child begins whining about dinner, then simply throw dinner down the garbage disposal and excuse the child from the table.
Yikes, that seemed a little harsh to me, but I felt as though my little ones had way to much control over me, so I gave it a try. WOW. It worked.
He also discusses the necessity of making your relationship with your spouse a priority. The best gift you can give your children is a strong marriage! And they will feel more secure going through life with parents who show love and respect to one another.
I'm a huge fan of Kevin Leman now. I can't wait to read what else he's written!
