    Fantastic book about reality discipline and taking out an insurance policy on your kids' inherent self-esteem. I think that my favorite part is the last unit entitled "When reality discipline runs smack into reality". Leman takes very common scenarios and questions that might be problematic from parents and addresses how to address them with reality discipline. He breaks it down into 3 sections ages 0-5, 6-12 and teenagers. Leman is brilliant, experienced, gentle, loving, extremely humorous and Fantastic book about reality discipline and taking out an insurance policy on your kids' inherent self-esteem.

His clarification that good parenting lies somewhere in the middle between permissive and authoritarian is spot on. I have always enjoyed hearing him speak but found his parenting books somewhat thin. This one is not thin at all. It is packed with goodness.

    It is not an exaggeration to say that this book saved our parenting sanity. There are so many practical pointers in this book that are right in the money.

    He's right: discipline is imperative for growth, and encouraging strengths with loving relationship yields healthy development. His delivery was to mainstream white middle-class Americans--which is clearly his target audience--but I'm not sure that it feels up-to-date. I found it interesting to rephrase his principles to meet EVERY relationship. Who doesn't know more than a few overgrown 2yr olds? And on that note, he could've delved more directly to the truth that parents need to deal with thei He's right: discipline is imperative for growth, and encouraging strengths with loving relationship yields healthy development.

And on that note, he could've delved more directly to the truth that parents need to deal with their own deep issues when the children are avoiding relationship. Nothing in life is more suited to bringing inner pain to the surface than raising a child...Nor is there a more beautiful opportunity for redemption than honestly pursuing healing and restoration.

    This book takes many Love and Logic approaches, but also adds another level to parenting. I absolutely love that he came right debunking "quality time" by saying it requires quantity to get quality with kids. Parenting books always have some chapters I am racking myself with guilt during and those are there in this book --do better, be more patient, more consistent--but overall I felt that the author encouraged all parents that with love for our children, a bit of self-control, encouragement and This book takes many Love and Logic approaches, but also adds another level to parenting.

    I've read many a parenting help book and this is by far my favorite. It changed the way I parent. It is practical advice that is easy to implement and follow through with. I have loaned out this book over and over to all of my friends and they have come back with the same rave review. I've read many a parenting help book and this is by far my favorite.

    I'm not big on self-help books, but this book has really helped me step back and take a look at the way I interact with my children. I read a chapter or 2 when I have a moment. He uses a lot of examples which is very helpful. I'm not big on self-help books, but this book has really helped me step back and take a look at the way I interact with my children.

    Heavy on practical and psychological, not a spiritual or "heart" book. Very helpful. Specifically found the chapters on power struggles and the difference between praise and encouragement to be helpful. Heavy on practical and psychological, not a spiritual or "heart" book.
