I would find myself being less patient, quick to anger and assigning evil intent to their motives. The author is an independent child development researcher and mom of six 6!

It takes you back to what parenting should be: The author also speaks with great candor about a few difficult moments she had with her children, as well as how she handled them as a gentle parent, and what she learned from the process.

It is honest, and it is enlightening. It is this gift that makes her an excellent adult voice for children and babies, and in a tone that comes across strongly and compassionately throughout the book. As one of many examples of her ability to view life through the eyes of a child, I found her discussion on how children learn about sharing to be quite helpful.

And she shares with you concrete ideas for every age and stage in an understanding, reasonable way.

She is Christian but religion doesn't play a big part in this book.

This book discusses the two-thousand connection points a day you can create when your children outgrow the two-thousand kisses a day newborn cuddle stage aww.

Simply brilliant and brilliantly simple! I loved the points brought up about punishment both physical and psychological. The fact that, although punishments can provide short term results in stopping unwanted behaviours for the time being, they cannot control the person.

If controlling another human being is the goal, then force is necessary.

Fear, intimidation, threats, power-plays, physical pain, those are all means of control.
