5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and Unique advice!, May 30, 2008
This review is from: Raising Godly Tomatoes (Paperback)
This book and the site ([...]) is loaded with common sense advice in raising children. YES, it does advise parents to swat their children, but better is a controlled swat on the rear now and then to re-establish authority, than cajoling, threatening, bribing, etc.

I want my children (8, 6, & 4) to obey me the first time I tell them to do or not do something. My 4 year old likes to wander at the store. What if he was used to me repeating, threatening, or yelling over and over to get him to listen to me? Better he hear my voice and listen to my instructions the very first time.

By following the advice in this book, you will find your life with much less frustration, kids who are happier, and a peaceful home. Kids really, really want guidelines and it gives them security to know who is in charge.

So, unless you are a rabid anti-spanker, give the ideas in this book a try. I guarantee that you and your children (and your neighbors, friends and relatives) will be pleased with the outcome!

For all on here who have been directed by your grace-based parenting friends to post a review, though you've never even read the book....save your words and your one-star reviews.
