I have three children, ages 8,9 & 10, including a son diagnosed with ADHD. It was out of sheer desperation that I came up with many of the discipline ideas in this book. Traditional child-rearing methods are a good place to start but I found, as I'm sure you have as well, that my three children just aren't cookie cutter kids. They each required, and deserved, discipline that took into account their own inherent strengths and weaknesses.
My friends have urged me for years to write down some of my ideas, stories and insights for disciplining my children. I can only hope the ideas in "Creative Correction" will help you as much as they have helped me to enjoy the process of parenting. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book is, dare I say it, a "how to do" on Child Abuse!!!!
This book is one which I plan to read regularly so that I can take more and more of Lisa's ideas to help me with the kids.
You can't teach your children to be kind, compassionate, loving and gentle by treating them the way this book suggests.

A treasure box brimming over with ideas! I read this book a little too late since I have teenagers, but was still able to glean information and customize it to fit our family. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Crystal G.
