I took a parenting class by Alfie Kohn admirers so I think it would be a good book. I was quite impressed with the parenting class!

It's a great book - more to help you understand underlying issues of and reasons for GD and UP -- it isn't a blueprint for doing it, though he does have some good ideas.<br><br>
we used to have a thread on this list, a group of us putting UP principles into practice every week. You could probably start a similar reading group/support thread, or even just search and go back to read those discussions (it was in May/June).

Amazing book, possibly life-changing (in a good way)! I just ordered the dvd to share with my family and hope it is easier to process in that format.<br><br>
A must read!

I loved it. Read it twice and highlighted (haven't done that since school.) My non-gd relatives were picking it up and reading it when we had a family get together, and they really liked it, too.

Thanks for the reminder. I'm going to go order it from my library's website.

I loved it! It was also life changing for me. Another book to help you put a lot of the principles to good use would be "How to Talk So Kids Will Listen" by Faber and Mazlish. I would read UP first and just let it sink in, then pick up the other book. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
