Unconditional Parenting Book Club - Page 3

post #41 of 59
Thanks so much for starting this! I started reading this quite a while ago but stalled out. I think I needed to discuss it and was having a hard time reading it alone. So this should be great! Now I just have to find it... Hope I didn't miss much!

please feel free to join in at your own pace! it's a forum, which is nice you don't have to discuss the chapters at the same time any certain group of women are, you can join in as you read and so can others!

Yes, count me in. I just posted on a different forum how I am looking for positive discipline ideas. I just joined, so this would be a great way to get involved in exactly the topic I was looking for. I have a one and two yo DD's.

I see you are already on ch. 2 discussions but I'm guessing you can join in any time you want?

I just ordered the book, so hopefully I'm be joining you soon!

Would love to join this group, I just bought the book. This is exactly what I was looking for, b/c I need help with discipline.

I came to GD through AP, esp. breastfeeding. I have read Punished by Rewards and thought it was excellent, so I'm really glad to see this discussion - it's the push I needed to get the book ordered. I'll be joining in soon! I love to read excellent parenting books, and I'm already a big fan of Kohn, although certainly not an excellent practitioner of his ideas.

Hi! Joining late! Hope it's ok! I read this book a few months back and would love to discuss it. I have always been into AP and GD but only recently found Kohn. I have had lots of success so far with Dr. Sears and of course good old Mothering. I have one DD, 9 and I have found this age verrrry challenging.

is it too late to join? oh, how i wish i'd seen this thread sooner.

This was such a great book and it is such a cool idea to have an online book club!! My dd is only 3 months so I am really enjoying reading how you other mommas are applying Kohn's principles and how it's working.

Just wondering has anyone seen the dvd and if you've read the book, is it worth getting the dvd as well or is it pretty much the same thing?

DH and I watched the DVD (from the library) and ended up purchasing the book. It's been a great reference and there are more examples to fully flesh out Kohn's ideas. I would recommend both, if possible.
But for friends short on time, I've been recommending the DVD.

Super late joiner here, I bought the book as a Christmas gift to myself. I have read the intro so far and am hoping to get a lot out of it!!

Too weird! I haven't looked at this forum for months and I looked today and here you are you qbear. This is a great book. I read it together with "Raising our children, raising ourselves". I highly recommend that one too!
