As parents, you have only a few years to prepare your children for a world that requires responsibility and maturity for survival. That thought alone can send shivers down your parental spine! So what do you do? Hover over your kids so they never make mistakes? Drill them so they'll remember the important principles when you're on their own? Tear your hair out, wondering if teaching them responsibility is anything but a battle of wills? According to Jim Fay, one of America's top educational consultants, and Dr. Foster Cline, a trend-setting child and adult psychiatrist, parents who try to ensure their children's success often raise unsuccessful kids. Responsibility is like anything else-it has to be learned through practice. If you want to raise kids who are self-confident, motivated, and ready for the real world, take advantage of the win-win approach to parenting. Your kids will win because they'll learn responsibility and the logic of life by solving their own problems. And you'll win because you'll establish healthy control-without resorting to anger, threats, nagging, or exhausting power struggles. Parenting with Love and Logic puts the fun back into parenting!

Solid Advice...
Much of what the authors say seems intuitive, especially about parental use of respect and self control. I disagree with the authors' thoughts on the role of self-concept though as considering all the kids I grew up with and all the ones I know now the effect of self concept is not anywhere near as cut and dried as they suggest. My experiences support the idea that a positive self concept can be present in either a respectful well behaved child, or a rebellious oaf. Additionally, I wish the discussion of modeling had been included in the first part where the 'techniques' are explained, rather than only in the second part with the examples (Pearls). My final warning is that the authors seem to attribute more complex reasoning skills to children at ages I have not seen children use those particular skills - however not at ages where they couldn't be taught them.
So, their advice is sound, but some (a lot, I think) kids may need more explanation than the parents in the examples give and the stories where the parent tries a technique once with excellent results are probably 'best case scenario' outcomes. Many parents may have to apply the techniques over many occasions to achieve success on a single issue.
