I can't believe I almost let all the negative reviews keep me from reading this book! I was horrified after reading the reviews, only to find they were completely exaggerated, and many false. Seriously, some people just added things that aren't even in the book to discourage you from buying. They continuously stress the importance of being sensitive to your child, but firm also, as to not need to "discipline" them often. They are very loving people, and the advice they give comes straight from The Lord. As my parents told me, convincing me to buy the book, the people with negative reviews are probably those who like to sit their kid in the corner for punishments. If that's the case, this book is not for you, and have fun with your child raising you!

The forced draft due to the Vietnam War brought a sense of eternity to the youth, provoking them to seriously consider their souls. It was a time of a great move of the Spirit of God. As a teenager, dressed in tie-dye tee shirt and long drooping peasant skirt, she stood on the highways and byways sharing the gospel and seeing miracle after miracle of God's amazing grace.

-5 stars. Don't read it. Don't do it. The smiling face on the cover is propoganda-- these behavior modification techniques inspire fear, not love.Published 16 months ago by Sara Washbush
