I have never given this low a rating to a book, but I couldn't even get past the first few chapters, much less finish it. The author is just too preachy and some of her "creative correcting" ideas left me feeling rather uncomfortable and I felt they crossed the line from correction to excessively punitive. This is not to say she doesn't have some positive ideas also, but they are techniques most parents could find elsewhere without having to sort through and weed out more extreme ideas. Overall, I would not recommed this book to any parent.

This book was not what I expected. While it does address correction and consequences, it is very religion based and relies heavily on Bible Scriptures which is not a method of correction I would employ. It has a few suggestions that could be used either as is or modified to eliminate the religious connotations if so desired but all in all, the vast majority of the books contents were not what I considered useful for my personal circumstance because my child is typically well behaved and well mannered but occasionally makes a poor choice without thinking it through so I was looking for ideas that would help me reinforce a lesson in this instances. This book was no help with that.
