    This book details a program/method on raising responsible kids in an irresponsible world. Lots of good ideas and advice. Now, I just need to learn to implement it!

    This book is great in many ways. It offers practical, easy to implement strategies for encouraging positive behavior in your children through the use of logical consequences. It is very behavioral in its emphasis meaning it shouldn't be the only book on your shelf. Supplement with books to address other issues such as the meaning behind your child's behavior. Gottman's "Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child" is a good one. The second half of the book is not nearly as helpful as the first. It offers topical "pearls" that felt too surfacy in their treatment to be of much use. You are in good shape if you simply read the first 100 pages or so.

    I have an 8 and 11 year old and I found this book full of interesting tips and concepts for me to implement. It does have a Christian/Religious background to it, which I chose to skim over, not being a follower of any religion, but felt it still had some valid ideas and suggestions to take on. It coaches parents not to come from a place of anger, punishment, or 'fighting talk', and suggested alternatives.

    I wouldn't consider this book helpful for anyone with a toddler or child under 5. All the suggestions for how to deal with that age group I felt were extreme and not realistic or constructive.

    Some of the examples are also a bit extreme. I would never starve an animal, especially a family pet, and give it away to 'teach my child a lesson about responsibility'. I found that cruel and heartless and not what I would consider 'Christian' in any form. A pet is part of the family and EVERYONE's responsibility. If a parent chooses to let their child have a pet, they should teach them good care by including them in that care, and showing by example. I was angered and sickened by the idea.

    And I also wouldn't leave a foster child, who had only been living with me for a week, out on the streets overnight in mountain country, to 'teach them a lesson about being on time'.

    Although the authors preach empathy, these examples didn't really provide it. For me, it was clear the authors were men, who weren't the primary carers of their children, especially in their formative years.

    Despite this I still felt there was a lot to learn from this book, and found it helpful in the issues I have with discipline and consistency. I would reference it again.

    Raising kids is difficult, and every child is different. Therefore, no one book can tell you how you should teach your own unique human being. Having said that, as one who survived parenting six very different children, I wholeheartedly endorse this book. It does not absolve you of the responsibility of understanding each child individually and catering your approach to his/her specific needs, but it does provide powerful tools and insights that will make you much more effective as a parent. Just be careful not to cross the line that separates mature detachment (good) and indifference (bad). In other words, remember the "Love" part, and not just the "Logic."
