Helpful in getting an idea of positive ways to interact with young children. Less helpful in actually getting them to do what you want! ( )
  jholcomb | Nov 23, 2012 |
Not a bad resource for discipline and teaching life skills to preschoolers. Doesn't have all the answers, but offers a helpful philosophy to get started in the right direction. Covers eating, sleeping and potty training issues, discipline challenges and child development. Aims for discipline, not punishment, that empowers and teaches life skills. Also aims to exchange power struggles for respectful cooperation. Recommended, although I haven't used it extensively. ( )
