"Powerful, inspirational, and supportive. Janet Lansbury has expanded and built upon what Magda Gerber originally taught and modeled, while remaining true to the original philosophy. This is an indispensable guide." - Lisa Sunbury, RegardingBaby.org
"Whenever I have moments of doubt or confusion -- surrounding tantrums, moving, new schools, etc.-- I often turn to Janet Lansbury's website. I've mentioned it a few times because her thoughtful advice always rings true. She clearly respects children and reminds you that they're whole people in need of gentle love and compassion -- even when they're driving you bats:) Her books about parenting and discipline reflect this wonderful approach." - Joanna Goddard, A CUP OF JO

On the flip side, I agree with much of Lansbury's point of view, she mentions many parenting basics that most innately feel is right with regard to how to treat and interact with children. But the messages are scrambled, and not well laid out. Parenting is difficult and parents who miraculously find the time to read up on how to discipline their children the right way need clear and concise advice, examples, and pointers.
I'd much rather recommend people to read "How Toddlers Thrive" by Tovah Klein or "No-Drama Discipline" by Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson. Both are written by scholars in the field and both contain better thought out approaches to gentle discipline, well laid out chapters, and quick reference options.
With this book I have found that to be somewhere between challenging and completely ineffective, because upon taking the time to meditate on the text, I was highlighting 80% of the book (my standard is 5-10% just in case you were wondering), so I just stopped doing that and figured I would come back later and read it all over again, cause I find it to be that good.
