My husband was catching a plane and I stuck it in his brief case. I had been desperate to just address some parenting issues in our family. I wanted him to be empowered to make some changes!!! The book has broken down the main parenting concepts from Love & Logic into short 2-3 page chapters. After his trip my husband came home to correct certain things I was doing. He changed his approach with our son to focus on his strengths rather than his weakness. It is a very insightful book helping you understand how to raise children.

I just LOVE this book. I really can't say enough about it. It is very quick reading, and each "lesson/story" is only a page or 2 long - so it's really easy to find the time to read. This is a must have for any parent or teacher who wants effective discipline strategies that really work!

As a parent and a school counselor I highly recommend this book and all the resources from Love and Logic. They are excellent tools for parents and teachers. In case you are turned off by the thought that they might be a Christian organization - They are not, nor do their books promote or discuss anything related to Christianity.

2014 - I'd like to clarify as it seems some have taken offense to this comment. When I posted it there was a nasty comment from someone who equated this organization with a well known Christian organization. I am glad to see the comment has been removed. I also have no idea if Jim and Charles Fay are Christians or not (personally I hope they are!). They do not preach the gospel in any of the materials I have seen. Their methods work well with a Christian worldview. I have also seen their methods well received in secular public school settings. For this reason I am thankful they do not have an overtly Christian message.

This book was an easy read for folks who want to do the best they can by their kids, but don't have a lot of time to devote to lengthy reads. The stories were all two pages maximum and had such wonderful common sense advice, it will make you wonder why you didn't think of it yourself! I highly recommend this book written by two loving men who truly care about what they share with us. This book isn't just for parents and teachers, it equally applies to grandparents and other family members and anyone who deals with children day to day. The fact that kids learn best from making their own mistakes is undeniable, the truth that it's far easier to make the mistakes when young as opposed to when the stakes are greatly multiplied as adults, is one worth great consideration! A profound and influential book that has already begun to affect my family and how we relate to each other. Thanks to the authors for this!

I have read several of the Love & Logic books & decided to give this book a place on my shelf. It's loaded with bits of wisdom, tools & encouragement to help with everyday situations. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, a coworker, a manager or all of the above, this book will help in many issues that arise & give you confidence to handle things logically AND with love!
Putting these principles into bite-sized pieces helps you achieve gradual understanding in the love & logic principles as well as making them a part of your life, permanently.

I have several books of this ilk and wish I had stumbled onto it years ago! After having raised my own kids, I'm raising two grandsons (ages 10 & 7). This philosophy of Love & Logic and Positive Parenting has changed night into day!! And it's so true, the more control you can give away, the more control you gain. At times, it feels as if the boys and I are roommates because it's so much easier this way! And they're so well-behaved!

I recommend it to everyone who will listen and have given Love & Logic to a friend.

I refer to this book often and if something comes up like a problem with bullies or lying, then I can go read this book (just 4-6 pages) and then bring up the conversation again later with my child. It amazes me that when I change my wording to be very similar to Love & Logic, I get a much better reaction from my child. It really does make them think.

Jim Fay, where were you years ago? You were the best kept secret. Love, love your sage approach to building better thinking children. And the books are very readable....no college degree required. Just wonderful, good sense.
