To Fathers:
You certainly know from your own experience that being a good father takes more than a minute.
However, there are ways you can communicate with your children -- in only a minute -- that will help them quickly learn how to like themselves and want to behave themselves.
The techniques are so simple, it may be difficult for you to believe that they will work. Nonetheless, you may want to do what other parents have done -- use the three communication methods described in this book in your home for one month.
Then judge for yourself. See how your children's behaviour improves. And ask your children how good they feel about themselves.
You may very well find what I and other parents have -- from both the children's and the parent's point of view -- it works!
- Spencer Johnson, M.D.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688144055, Paperback)

The One Minute Father is the seminal One Minute book. A man who sees that he has been a better provider than parent learns by trial and error how to be more nurturing. He first learns a more effective way to discipline -- applying One Minute Reprimands. Then his children help him discover two even more important parenting methods -- One Minute Praisings and One Minute Goals. Using these practical methods, a father develops more confidence in himself as a parent, as he and his children enjoy a happier family life. The One Minute Father begins where most fathers are and takes them to where they want to be.
