Great book for all parents!

I found this book when I asked a family friend that has four amazing teenagers how they raised such great kids. They said they read this book when the first child was very young and continued its teachings with all the kids. I have started the program on our children and it really works like magic. I highly recommend this book to all parents, even those with already great kids. It is more about enjoying your kids than about discipline.

Outdated, disrespectful to children...and the voiceover guy clearly belongs on infomercials

Give yourself some credit as a parent. This is what your mum used to do. I got through chapter 2 and decided I just couldn't do it any more. It's 2016! We're smarter and kinder than this.
