    This is a very thorough approach to understanding the mindset of discipline as TEACHING, not punishment. I found it very helpful. And a lot of the skills she talks about are applicable to dealing with adults, too!

    One of them is "Positive Intent" - basically assuming the best about something we cannot know. So when a driver cuts me off in traffic I assume, "they must have a sick child at school," or something similar, and just as noble, and that is why they cut me off - not just because they are impatient and mean. Since I will probably never know the truth, it really does not matter what I think, but thinking something positive makes ME feel better about it! Brilliant! :) (The same goes for disciplining your children - always assume they are innocently trying to figure things out, not just trying to be mean or "push your buttons.")

    It is a long book, though, so be prepared to wade through it (not overly long, but not a short read by any means). And it will make you think. But if you stick with it. I think you will be convinced and finish it with some skills to assist in your discipline efforts, if nothing else.

    Dr. Bailey has an image of children and what their lives could be like that is a synthesis of some of the best writing in the field in heart-felt, everyday terms. This book is an invitation to explore your deepest beliefs, your own childhood, your heart, in order to be the type of adult who allows chidlren to flourish, thrive and laugh their way through childhood. I use this book as the bible for my college Guidance for Young Children class and make a gift of it to teachers and parents who are struggling to be the parent or teacher they really want to be. I love this book.
