I would recomend The Secret of Parenting by Anthony Wolf. It is much more mainstream than Alfie Kohn. And it tend to appeal a lot more to men who are see the need for "punishment" which it does not advocate at all. But it is much less "touchy feely" than Unconditional Parenting.

Ok, case in point. I bought a package of size 4 unders from Marshall's- Fruit of the Loom. When we got home to try them on, they didn't even cover her butt crack. And she is three, and as I stated previously she is a reed. There should be no reason a manufacturer should...
