Some good points, but would recommend "The Explosive Child" instead.
on October 2, 2010
I thoroughly liked the general adult version of "Boundaries", but did not like this book as much. Many great points throughout the book, such as how parents can and should avoid extreme anger and manipulating behavior when disciplining their children, but I feel a much better overall approach to dealing with challenging behavior in children can be found in a book called "The Explosive Child", but Dr. Ross Greene. "The Explosive Child" is great for parents of all children, but can be especially helpful for those dealing with severely challenging children. This book has changed my entire paradigm of how to relate to children. Though Dr. Greene's book is not written from a Christian viewpoint, it might as well be! It is very in line with mainstream Christian principles - more so than many books marketed as "Christian parenting" information in my opinion.
