    Incredibly helpful!

    Speaking as a person who grew up with a father whose first and only line of discipline was putting his children over his knee for a hard spanking or a fast slap across the face, I feared once I had my daughter I could be like him. I felt the possibility within myself to be like him and that frightened me. This book showed me another way. This book has, at least for the first year of my daughter's life, spared us both from pain. Of course, time will only tell if this is a good way to raise children but there have been no spankings in my house and we get along great! Sure any baby will drive a parent crazy some times, but it doesn't have to stay that way.
