A powerful read- as a non- Christian I was able to 'ignore' the heavy Biblical references and hold on to the exceptional advice.
As someone who is right in the thick of boundary work with my two small children (4 and 2), this book has been something I've clung to when the s*** has hit the fan- literally and figuratively.
With very few boundaries to begin with this book has pinpointed key areas to work on, simple sayings to get you through the empathizing with their pain process and ways to implement at certain ages.
One thing I appreciate is that this book has brought light to not only my kid's issues but my own as well.
This book is a must read for those who can see past religion and accept help from those that carry the wisdom- highly suggested.

FYI, don't just get the videos and participant's guide - get the book with it and read it along with the guide. For planning, the guide is 8 sessions long.
Who Should Read This Book?
Boundaries with Kids was written for parents of children of all ages, from infancy to the teen years. However, if you aren’t a parent, Boundaries with Kids may also help you to help the children you love and whose lives you impact. This book will help you if you are a
• Daycare worker or babysitter
• Church youth worker
• Or even a teen who is working on your own boundaries!
Although you may not be a parent, you still want to be a force for responsibility and righteousness in the lives of the kids you influence. This book is designed to help you implement these principles, whether you are a primary caretaker or play a secondary role in a child’s life.
Why Should You Read This Book?
You don’t have to be in a crisis to benefit from this book. The principles offered here apply to all situations. Your child may be at age-appropriate levels of maturity at home, at school, and in relationships. As a result, you may want to use this material to ensure that the process continues as your child navigates from one age group to another and into adulthood.
But Boundaries with Kids will also help with problems and crises in parenting. All parents have problems. Some problems are oriented around issues of responsibility and self-control. This book shows how to deal with these sorts of problems:
• Inattention to parental directives
• Defying authority
• Inability to finish tasks
• Aggressive behavior
• School problems
• Conflicts with friends
• Sexual involvement
One of the things I like about the layout is that it doesn't spend tons of chapters giving background, only to finally hit the meat of the book at the end. Each chapter addresses something specific and gives practical advice on fixing the issue. So you can read only one chapter and still benefit from the book. You can also go back to a specific chapter when you're having a specific issue.
