Supportive, practical parenting book, Oct. 7 2011
I think everyone must have this book in their parenting library. Debbie has made it easy for parents to respond to their child's behaviour in a way that is respectful and gentle, yet firm. The book is fun, easy to read and a invaluable resource. Every time I pick it up I glean a new insight into my child's world, which helps me not only understand and appreciate my child even more, but also respond in a gentle way instead of react to their behaviour.
Debbie has a way of inviting the reader to explore effective parenting skills without sounding like she is trying to shame you as a parent, in fact she often empathizes with parents then offers some guidance. Her book is filled with practical gems. Her words are supportive and helpful.
If you are looking for parenting skills that will make a positive impact on your family then this book is for you.
