As usual, he teaches us to love our children and love our family. He is sincere and warm with a huge heart of gold. THANK YOU FOR SHOWING US kids really need kindness to learn best.
I was not sure what age span was addressed in this new little book on discipline, but because I am an avid Brazelton fan, I bought it anyway. Although, there is quite a bit of general discipline philosophy and information in the book, I feel the majority of it is geared to parents and teachers of 2-6 year olds. Sometimes the text refers to "older children"; but, from the advice that is given on topics like stealing, I would say older children means ages 7-10. I do think all the information makes good sense and is in keeping with the many other Brazelton books. I particularly like the section of the book that explains a variety of discipline techniques...one by one. The authors include pros and cons on each one-- which I found unique and helpful. The last part of the book gives solutions to common misbehaviors like biting, tantrums, sibling fights, foul language, and lying. I found this section easy to quickly look up a particular problem --where the authors offer concise, easy to understand information on the why's and what to do's with each troublesome behavior. If you have 2-5 year olds, I would like to also highly recommend another "little book" called "The Pocket Parent"--an A-Z pocket-sized compendium written exclusively for parents and teachers of preschoolers. This book is a very "hands-on" companion to "Discipline: The Brazelton Way". "The Pocket Parent" offers a good dose of welcome humor and fabulous short real-life anecdotes that illustrate many of the suggested positive discipline techniques. Both books are under $10 and a worthwhile addition to your personal or school reference library...always ready to restore your sanity--especially when you feel you're just about to lose your mind!
