Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heidi | 2/13/2014

    " I read this after reading "The Birth Order Book" by the same author. This book had some good principles and ideas, but I didn't get as much out of it as I expected I would. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taryn | 2/9/2014

    " LOVE THIS AUTHOR!!!! GREAT, GREAT, GREAT BOOK FOR PARENTS, I THINK EVERY PARENT SHOULD READ THIS. I LEARNED MORE ABOUT REALITY DISCIPLINE AND DISCOVERED....IT WORKS SO MUCH BETTER THAN ANY OTHER KIND OF DISCIPLINE. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mugsymkelly | 1/31/2014

    " Good, practical info. for child training "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 1/30/2014

    " extremely practical, balanced advice for disciplining kids. i've gotten a lot of ideas from this book that have WORKED. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony Bradshaw | 1/23/2014

    " It's a well written book, and I like most of his perspectives. I enjoyed his "voice" in that it seemed like I was hearing him speak, which was nice for an advice book that it wasn't just "do this" and "do that" but real examples mixed in with a conversational or speaking tone. Leman makes it clear he's human and has mistakes. There are few things I will change in my parenting, so I've either lost my mind or.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicki | 1/21/2014

    " I loved this book. It helped me to have ideas how to enforce my daughter taking responsibility for her actions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlene | 1/14/2014

    " This is a re-read. I really like his approach as the happy in-between to being overly controlling or permissive in parenting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 1/3/2014

    " Reality Discipline: teaching kids the "reality" of life consequences - very cool. I resonate with this style of discipline more than permissive or authoritarian parenting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 12/19/2013

    " this one is a definite keeper for future reference. I have already started applying some of the techniques and yes they do work. Hopefully I can keep up with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amandalynn | 12/18/2013

    " He was very straight forward and had some new eyesight for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mandy | 12/11/2013

    " This is the first parenting book I have found that actually gives you instructions on how to handle different situations with your child! Very helpful! This one gives you specifics! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/10/2013

    " I enjoyed this book and agreed with most of his suggestions on child rearing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 faithful | 6/8/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Traca | 3/6/2013

    " A great book that looks at parenting from a Biblical perspective without being too preachy. Practical, easy to implement ideas that are based on the concept of reality discipline. It's entertaining and light-hearted because Dr. Leman writes from his experiences and yes, even mistakes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly | 2/6/2013

    " Loved it, took my notes elsewhere though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 7/6/2012

    " Hasn't worked so far. Maybe by the time I finish the book I'll be an uber-parent and never yell at the kids, but I'm not holding my breath. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellie | 4/4/2012

    " This book was ok. It gave me some ideas, but most of it I was already either aware of or doing. And for some reason, that doesn't make me feel like any better of a parent. Probably because I still feel like I'm losing my mind most days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 3/20/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 5/29/2011

    " It was very informative. It didn't get 5 stars only because I don't fully enjoy reading self-help books. I need them! But I find them a little dull. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 1/14/2011

    " Written by a very matter-of-fact religious doctor of some sort (can't remember what kind). He talks about Christ and the bible a lot. Sometimes I really liked his ideas and advice, other times not so much. I'm not into using "the rod" on my kids. "
