Faline5 Stars Out Of 5Love it!February 23, 2015FalineQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love that this book prefaces that everything must be done in love, and love includes cool, calm, consistent discipline, as well as, lots of encouragement and positive reinforcement. If we don't enforce discipline and consequences in a loving, thoughtful & effective way, we aren't showing love! The consequences of that, are often children who have a far more difficult struggle with self-centeredness & healthy self image, difficulty in submitting to authority & mastering their impulses and behavior, especially when things don't go their way. This book is chalked full of scripture and scripture based principles, always done with a patient & loving attitude, while challenging parents to be the role model & trainer (with God's direction) for the behaviors & character we would like to see in our children. I'm challenged by it & love it!
JenaValleyview, ABAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great book!October 17, 2012JenaValleyview, ABAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I 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.

Excellent book!
AndreaEuropeAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5A bridge too far.....June 21, 2011AndreaEuropeAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I 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!
