This book is proposing stuff that can be used with real kids (as opposed to.. you know - theoretical ones).
As the title says, the main parenting rule showcased here is: raise your kids without raising your voice.
I really liked the highlight: angry interactions weaken parental power, and destroy the parent-child relationship.
The only power we have is the power of relationship - the child's desire to please us and accept our direction.
When we cannot make the child do what we want her to do, we must back off and take the time to build and strengthen the relationship and rethink the discipline strategies.
Although I didn't agree with all the ideas and methods in this book, and it did conflict with similar positive parenting books (on recommending rewards and punishments system for example), I found this book highly realistic and anchored into reality.
I should have given it 5 stars for that alone.
