Creative Correction - eBook
I really enjoyed this book, but I was looking for some help with my twin 2 year old girls, and the book is geared for older kids that can reason better, and for teens. I will keep the book and definitely check it out again when my kids are older, and I think it will be really helpful, but right now, not much help, except to know I am not alone, and my kids are normal.

I absolutely love this book. It is packed with lots of great ideas for how to handle various issues with kids. It is a easy read. I really like the toolbox sections which have great practical ideas. I love Lisa's creativity and her humilty. I have had this book for four years now and still refer to it regulalry for advice.

definitely a must if you have children
I think this has excellent, simple ideas, and you will probably find yourself saying, "why didnt I think of that"....not only do you get the discpline ideas, but you have scripture to share with your child and what God has to say about it. Excellent book!

A bridge too far.....
I started out as areal Lisa-Fan and love her "the busy momÃÂ´s guide to.." books, but just like the previous critical reviewer, I donÃÂ´t agree with LisaÃÂ´s "corrective tactics".
As a mom of three(a challenging ADD-son included) I can understand where she is coming from....I just donÃÂ´t agree.
I have never, never, never used physical punishment.
And there were some challenging moments....but it is so important to keep patient, especially with an ADD child.
The kids mirror our own mood and attitude and that should be one of patience and love.
If you put them under physical, or psychological pressure, they will obey....but it is a forced obedience.
I wish Jesus could give a review on this book.....
I am proud to say that my kids are beautiful, happy teenagers now, which brings new challenges.....nobody is perfect.
My ADD-child is functioning very well, at a normal secondary school, without any medication.
There is a different way!
