    Awesome advice, horrible editing

    I love the techniques presented, but this book has sooo many typos; as if they didn't even run a spell check on it. I love all the bible verses peppered throughout this edition too. A must read for any parents, especially those who grew up with spanking and don't want to repeat that but are at a loss for what to do instead.

    My husband and I started using this method with our three children 14 years ago after I learned it as a preschool/daycare employee. It really, really works if you are consistent. Our kids are respectful, loving teenagers today.
