Review by lilysea
As far as child development/parenting books that give advice go, I strongly prefer the Positive Discipline series. I probably feel that way because I already think most of what they say. I think in general, that's a good way to judge a parenting book. Once I know that the book is already "on my side" of various issues, I can trust it a bit to offer new ideas. Positive Discipline is my favorite for that.

Some excellent advice, but at times it is just all a bit too lovey dovey. By this edition, there is basically no discipline involved at all, and even logical consequences are out the window. The best info here IMO is the insistence that the parents must in all cases keep control of their emotions and not escalate conflicts. Once this happens, all bets are off and the child is in control.
