I've read a lot fo GD books but it has been a bit and my friend is starting to explore discipline outside of the mainstream and I am wondering what a good introductory book might be...and I don't want any that recommend time-outs...Personally, I am a fan of UP by Alfie Kohn...But I think that might be a bit much for a first taste, no? Thanks!!
Dr Sears, "The Discipline Book" is a good, "neutral" way to start, IMO. " Unconditional Parenting" is a tough one to wrap your head around if you've been in a traditional discipline "realm" all of your life. I wouldn't lead in with that, personally. It has great ideas, but they're "radical" to people used to more conventional parenting. Go with the soft sell first ;)
Mama to DS (8) and DD (7) Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself." And the London Underground is not a political movement.
