    this book is for the parent as much as the child, they don't come with instruction

    I have read the book several times to help me understand that the way my parents raised me is not the way I should raise mine or interface with any child. This book helped me realize there is no one way to deal with any child. People and children have different personalities which means there are billions of ways to deal with a child. The one solid thing this book taught me was to deal with each situation, evaluate the situation and use this book as a set of guidlines and rules to deal with children. Every child requires dealing with differently but consistant rules and guidelines in their life helps them sort and deal with thier problems as they grow. Allowing them to only take on what they are required to at certain ages. This allows good growth, stability, responiblity and many aspects of their life to become very solid as they grow into teenagers and young adults. It also resolved for me my failures in life in my relationships not only with children my exwife, in business, and all other relationships. Bounderies with kids shows us how to build our childrens character, other childrens character and to also build our character where we are lacking due to many reasons. Over all I would give this book a top rating for improving relationships with any person you deal with. When we have a rule and guideline based character life children will find us safe and know where they stand with us and are able to be more open and real with us about there everyday stuggles and triumphs, which creates a safe and secure home for them mutual trust and respect. I cannot type enough about these books and authors I am reading and collecting all of them and give extra copies I buy to friends, business contacts, anyone and family as gifts. They didn't come with an instruction book but there are after market books and these are the ones. My final note: I am intellegent and successful at many things but I was a failure at dealing with my family and children. I was to proud to read a book to save my marriage and also to proud to read a book to save my childrens dysfucntional ways that we passed on to them and struggled with. I have been greatly humbled by these books. I read everything I can get my hands on about excelling in buisness and have for years. Now I also read everything I can about raising my children to be successful at life and relationships which creates sucess and leadership in them and other.

    This is BY FAR the best parenting book I have ever read. I found it highly useful and practical with lots of useful information and tips on dealing with strong willed kids. It really helped me not only learn HOW to be a better parent, but it helped me see what my own parents did wrong so that I can correct those things in myself. I learned a lot from this book and I recommend it to EVERYONE who ever says they are looking for a good book on parenting and discipline.

    Your yellow highlighter will be busy when reading this book!

    This book is one that you will want in your library if you have kids! It does bring up scripture throughout, but it doesn't use it in a "preachy" way, so that didn't bother me while reading it. What you will learn in this book applies to how we are as parents and what we want to model for our kids so that their lives when "out of the nest" will be healthy.

    This book can help you awoid getting stuck in power-struggles with your kids, and for that alone it is worth the price. It is based on a logical-consequences type of approach to parenting that is really helpful in getting kids (and even spouses!) to be responsible. I would consider it essential for any parent who wants to sta
