A great aid for parents with "difficult" children. It is used by teachers and they feel it is helpful

This book was one used while taking the ESE program at college. Reading it gave me the tools to circumvent any potential problems from bedtime to childrens demands that may be unreasonable. it is a positive, caring and loving but strict practice... try it on your huisband!!! everyone has an option in any situation and Dreikers makes it easy for you to find the most positive solution for your children.

My mother in law recommended this book as an essential read when my second child was born so to maintain the peace I bought it.

I read it and the first few pages had me chuckling with the slightly racist and very outdated references making me realize how far we've come as parent when reading some of the scenarios. I can truly say it would never dawn on me to leave my 3 year old in the car to watch my 1 year old while I go grocery shopping, nor would I leave a 8 year old in charge of an infant while I ran out and did errands but the majority of the book is brilliant.

I cherry picked things that I could use in my everyday life and found a significant improvement in my relationship with my children, a significant improvement in their everyday behavior and more harmony in the shared parent aspect with my spouse.

This book can be broken down into three components.

Outdated and useless, antiquated but sound, brilliant and timeless parenting.

An excellent resource tool for every new parent.

I was happy to have finally gotten my book order, I thought it took a lot longer than it should have would,I guess it had to clear customs.
The books were in good shape but there was crayon scribble in one book which was a surprise to me as I would not have bought the book
had I known.

This book is certainly showing it's age, but it is in it's dated and sometimes sexist examples rather than in the actual concepts. I actually started reading the book without knowing the publishing date, and I was shocked at how well the concepts have remained true despite the passing of more than 40 years!

My hybrid family has implemented this system with good results. There has been a marked improvement in harmony simply due to the fact that we have stopped sermonizing and have stopped intervening in conflicts between the children. Personal responsibility now plays a greater part in our household. Conflict has been significantly reduced and the general mood of the family is less tense.

This is not a particularly entertaining read - the style conveys the professional physciatric perspective and is dry at times. However, the information was invaluable for me and my family and I heartily recommend this book.

Although this book was written in the sixties, the premise and underlying situations are eerily similar to what occurs today. Yes, there are cultural situations noted that we would shudder to think of today (a mother leaving her two small children in a car so she can grocery shop in peace). However, when you take the book and meanings in context, this is a survival guide to parents on how to raise children with respect and keeping your sanity at the same time.
I have tried "Love and Logic", and find Dr. Dreikur's approach to real consequences vs. "punishment" more successful in implementation.
