Should be Positive Discipline: Age 4 and Beyond

I was hoping for some positive discipline techniques that would work for my two year old, but the author mainly focused on kids around four years old and a little older. I don't know if this is because this "book" was a lecture and the author had to mainly focus on answering the audiences questions, or what, but I was very dissapointed.

The sound quality was poor as well. I had to constantly switch from turning the volume down and up, because the speaker was extremely loud, and the audience members who were asking questions were extremely low.

The author did have some good advice and techniques for older kids, but overall, I was not a fan of this audiobook.

the picture is misleading

I thought I was buying the book. Instead this is a lecture given by Jane Nelsen. The content is ok, but I am disappointed that this was not the book. The picture is the same as the one in the book with the same title (and yes, I understand the description said it was a lecture, but I didn't read it). So the problem is really with Audible - use a different picture for pete's sake!
