This is a good book for training a dog. The old-fashioned behavior modification techniques advocated may improve behavior, but may not enhance understanding, trust, or the parent-child relationship. The advice in this book ranges from good (praise good behavior rather than concentrating on bad), to questionable (encourage your children to eat when they're not hungry and to eat as much as you specify to earn dessert) to shocking (if your child won't go to time-out, hold the door shut while he screams, for hours if necessary.) A more understanding and helpful approach for 'difficult' children is outlined in 'The Explosive Child,' by Ross Greene.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
