I really agree with Barbara Coloroso's parenting philosophy and was fortunate enough to actually hear her speak. I loved her description of the jellyfish, brickwall and backbone parent. To this day, I still evaluate parents on that basis, including myself. Coloroso is against rewarding behavior with food and in favor of being consistent and allowing your children to take responsibility for their actions. However, this is not a "quick-fix" type of book. Examples are given, but only a few specific issues are addressed. Also, the book addresses such a wide range of ages that I tended to skip sections that didn't apply to my child's age.

Barbara lists the different type of parents, and gives examples of eahc.
There is the Jellyfish family
The brickwall family
and the back bone family.
We all need to learn to be the back bone fmaily.
The only thing I did not like was her sleeping advice. I do not agree with locking children out of the bedroom.

Coloroso knows her stuff. This book contains a fabulous foundation for family discipline and good behavior. I'd give it 5 stars, except it's a bit wordy, and takes some digestion to figure out how to make it work for you. I'd also recommend a new book called Perfect Parenting by Elizabeth Pantley.
