Has anyone read this? I got it at the library today and am looking forward to getting quiet time to take a look at it.<br><br>
Any favorite parts?

Read it? Pshaw.....half these awesome ladies are IN it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
It's good stuff!<br><br>
Haven't seen the author around here lately, but she used to pop in and out.<br><br>
I love how it's broken up into "issues"--like hitting or sharing or other "troublesome" stuff.

I love it!<br><br>
I only wish there was more about GD with older children... it really seems geared to toddler through preschool ages. But it's a great book to read... and re-read when I need to get focused again.

I loved it! The whole thing was good but I really loved how she got more than one perspective on dealing with the tough issues.

I love this book - it's a good one to go back to over and over again when you need a bit of a pick-me-up or a reminder as to why you chose to use gentle discipline. I just wish there were more father voices in the book so my husband had something more to relate to when reading it.

Great book! I particularly like the longer individual stories at the end. My favorite is the one about the kid who melted down over the school book sale when her real problem was something else. I recall it often when someone (child or adult) is upset, as a reminder to think about whether or not the apparent issue is the REAL issue.
