    1. This book comes highly recommended by a distinguished faculty member at Brigham Young University. He said that if there were one parenting book that he would recommend out of all of them out there it would be this one.

    2. I read this for my Patenting Skills class. It's one of the few text books I want to keep. I think every parent should read this. It's very digestible for the average reader. Dr. Steinberg gives expert advice and information based on sound research. Reading this makes you reflect on they way you were raised, and plan for the way you want to parent.

    3. I really enjoyed this book. There was so much good information in here. I ended up highlighting a lot of the book. It pertains various ages of kids too. Some of my favorite things I read in the book were-What you do mattersl yourself this every day. -You are the most important role model for your childey watch their parents more closely than anyone else. This is especially true prior to adolescence. -Children learn more by observing their parents than they do by listening to their lectures. -Chi [...]

    4. Great little book! A friend assigns it in her developmental psychology class. Easy and entertaining explanations of the consistent research findings about successful parenting. Presented in terms of principles, not specific practices. I disagreed with some of the chapter on discipline, as I think there is more research to be done. I love Alfie Kohn’s work on unconditional parenting. The ten basic principles:1. What you do matters2. You cannot be too loving3. Be involved in your child’s life4 [...]

    5. This was a really good book. My only complaint was that there were no references cited. The author often just said "Numerous studies have indicated" I always like to delve a little deeper into things. A lot of what was written in this book was common sense, but it was still a good reminder. My favorite part is on page 156 when it talks about the five elements of an effective punishment: 1. Identify what the child did wrong 2. Describe the impact of the misbehavior 3. Suggest an alternative behav [...]

    7. I read this for a Parenting class in college at BYU-Idaho. I agreed with most of the principles, but I disliked the author's style of writing / voice. His advice was so obvious that it felt slightly condescending. I distinctly remember a few instances where I thought "no duh" after a paragraph he wrote as if it was some new, interesting information. I haven't read very many books in the self-help category like this one, so maybe this is how all self-help books are. Not a bad book, but I wouldn't [...]

    8. It was an all around great book on parenting, in fact probably the best one I've ever read. Because it's giving examples of each age group I just skipped over the parts about toddlers and preschoolers or read it and thought "I came to the exact same conclusion" :) Other parts were a great reminders and lastly there were some super ideas that will help me with this teenager stage we're into now.

    9. I had to read this for a Parenting class. Self-help books rarely work for me but this one is readable and full of good, practical advice. I agreed with the parenting strategies and principles and it was far less painful to read than the dozens and dozens of articles and case studies I had to read this semester.

    10. This book is great in that it covers the very basic principles of good parenting. It isn't full of specific do's and don't (although there are some) but really provides an overall healthy perspective to parenting and how to become better. We used this as a text book for my parenting class and I enjoyed it. Very easy and quick read.

    11. I LOVED this book. If you're looking for very specific advice, this may not be the parenting book for you. However, I love that the books has principles instead of parenting rules. So much of this almost seems like common sense and yet no parent follows this principles perfectly. This is definitely a book to read and reread at each stage of childhood.

    12. Great princinples and explainations for why they work. Each topic has examples for how you can implement them for each stage of parenting (young children, adolescence, or teenager). My copy is completely marked up with notes for me to reread when I need help throughout my parenting struggles.

    13. While I didn't agree 100% with every point Steinberg makes, overall it is a great guideline to parenting. A lot of the information presented most parents know, but a lot of good reminders, and a good bullet point in the 10 principles of where parenting efforts should be placed.

    14. Every parent or person interacting with children MUST READ. Give practical, clear, concise advice based in true research. The examples and advice are both easy to understand and flexible to accommodate different children temperaments and family structure. It is a must read!

    15. A very good parenting book. Good solid information that is based on research. The reasoning behind the suggestions are given and good examples of each principle are also included. This is a book that every parent should read (more than once).

    17. I had to read this book for class and initially was not excitied to read another parenting book. (I have read a lot through the years because of my work with kids and parents). I really liked the simple, yet meaningful and applicable principles for parenting.

    18. I think we all need a little help and guidance now and then about how to take care of our kids. This author's ideas were clear and helpful, made sense and made me feel like I could really become a better parent. I'd definitely recommend it.
