Jaime5 Stars Out Of 5February 21, 2009JaimeI have not read the entire book, but based on what I have read, this book is not so bad to read if you already have a firm biblical foundation. A lot of the things mentioned in this book are important in raising a child. So many christian children have so many emotional scars that the Lord has to try to heal in long journeys as an adult because Christian parents don't always understand how to cherish and discipline their children correctly. A child is still a living breathing thinking human being. They should not be treated like inanimate objects that get smacked around and screamed at when they don't follow the exact blueprint of perfection. I think the first reviewer was a little bit harsh. As long as you have a strong foundation in the Lord, learning positive discipline strategies and about developing your childs character and emotions in a productive and not destructive way is going to be helpful. I think that the level that the teaching is secular probably go's along with the environment and beliefs of the parent or teacher that is putting the teachings into action as well. If you are a christian, you are going to learn to respect your child as an individual, but you are going to filter it through God's ways. But if you are a secular preschool, you are going to filter it through secular ways ;-).
Stacey1 Stars Out Of 5June 15, 2008StaceyI am familiar with Positive Discipline - it was the program in use by the secular preschool our son was in a while back. Honestly, I am surprised to find it on a Christian website. It is a very, very secular approach to parenting and discipline, and I would not recommend it if one is wanting to raise their children with a biblical approach.
