Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trisha | 2/13/2014

    " Loved this book! Very similar to "Love & Logic". I can't wait to put this plan into action. I have a few other books by this author and I really enjoy his down to earth attitude. He states that yes, children are an inconvenience, but we're here as parents to help them become the best adults they can. I had to laugh (and agree) when he said the older children are willing to "sacrifice" the youngest by sending them downstairs to the parents to ask for something to delay going to bed. It is so true in our home! This is one I'll be buying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Bechel | 12/2/2013

    " Love his style of writing and he doesn't sugar coat anything. Some call it commonsense parenting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ladonna | 11/27/2013

    " I learned alot from this book. Written in a very easy to read format with the best info for day to day use in the back of book. It has changed the way both of us parent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dreamdrifter | 10/31/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. It includes a large section with answers from Dr. Leman on common every day situations most parents encounter with his perspective on how to handle each. I liked the fact that the advice is written by a christian psychologist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 9/29/2013

    " I didn't dig deep into this book and didn't agree with some of it. However, there were several nuggets that I did get from it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 9/25/2013

    " Nothing new in this book, but presented nicely and without the heavy hand of some other parenting books out there. Love this guy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 9/11/2013

    " I think this is a great book. It has concrete answers on how to deal with specific situations. It covers everything from sleep habits, to curfew, allowance, sibling fighting, bad behavior while you are on the phone, in the car, whining, etc. I would recommend this book to any parent! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 7/27/2013

    " I'm going to try it...seems very "point blank", but since I am mothering Joshua, there really needs to be a book written specifically about him. If I survive his childhood, perhaps I'll write it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 5/12/2013

    " I love Dr. Leman (saw him speak before too) but this book wasn't all that I expected. Maybe I should have spaced out my reading: Mon-Fri instead of reading it all at once. I think I will read again. His parenting techniques make so much sense, though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 5/1/2013

    " This is a relatively short book that is easy to get through with no nonsense advice regarding discipline. His suggestions can easily be applied to most difficulties that arise in raising any age child. It fits with the 'love and logic' strategy and makes a lot of sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/22/2013

    " Really good. Hard to change bad habits but definetly good parenting advice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Simon | 3/20/2013

    " you can only have a new kid, if you have a new you!! No matter what parenting book you read that pill is always there to swallow. You can't change people only your reaction to them!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 12/28/2012

    " What I liked most about this book is the way he addressed specific situations at the back of the book and illustrated how his core prinicples played out in those scenarios. Worth the read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky | 10/3/2012

    " It had good advice.... a lot of which I've heard before. The hardest part is implementing it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 sparkypink | 9/16/2012

    " I read this book in two days. It is well written, and Dr. Leman adds humor to it, which helps. I'm intrigued by the idea and am looking forward to trying it out with my kids, especially my four year old. I'll have to come back and update this after I put it into place. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 9/9/2012

    " I thought he had a couple good points, but also thought he was dead wrong in other ideas he had. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 corinneloomis | 5/7/2012

    " I DID NOT have a new kid by Friday, but I really enjoyed the practicality of the author's view of parents and the wrong things we do. It definitely helped me deal with my own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candace | 2/21/2012

    " Good advice! Easier said than done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Ramey | 10/12/2011

    " I am not one for parenting books. But I was intrigued by this one. I didn't feel insulted or overwhelmed by some crazy plan to be a better parent. It was common sense. And, it's working. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 4/12/2011

    " For advice on parenting issues this author "hits the nail on the head" as far as I am concerned. I will watch for his other books on family life & parenthood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Foreman | 12/31/2010

    " Had some good steps to follow to handle any type of child. My seem old school to some but they are mostly habits that should be instilled and the consistency we as parents should have. I keep this book around and pick it up periodically. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie Stenger | 5/23/2010

    " If you are going through a situation where you need help like this, it's a great book and worth trying his method. I have tried it to an extent and it seemed to help a bit. I really like the author and what he's all about, he's also a very good speaker. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 debra | 12/8/2008

    " Loved this book. Especially when the author actually gives you the actions and words to use in certain situations, not just tell you you need to change and give no direction. Must read for all parents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie | 10/28/2008

    " There were some ideas I really liked in this book. But when he said there's no reason a child shouldn't be potty trained by age three, I no longer liked the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Berdean | 5/14/2008

    " One I would challenge everyone to read. Its easy reading, the doings is what is hard! Following through, and sticking to your guns. I wish I had read this before I had my children. "
