Dr. James Dobson has completely rewritten, updated, and expanded his classic best seller The Strong-Willed Child for a new generation of parents and teachers. The New Strong-Willed Child follows on the heels of Dr. Dobson's phenomenal best seller Bringing Up Boys. It offers practical how-to advice on raising difficult-to-handle children and incorporates the latest research with Dr. Dobson's legendary wit and wisdom. The New Strong-Willed Child is being rushed to press for parents needing help dealing with sibling rivalry, adhd, low self-esteem, and other important issues. This book is a must-read for parents and teachers struggling to raise and teach children who are convinced they should be able to live by their own rules!

As a teacher of children with special needs I must say I was appalled by the references in this book to spanking, threatening with wooden spoons etc. I listened to the first CD in hopes that the references would be discussed as totally inappropriate. I eventually stopped listening. I am a Christian woman and I do not believe in corporal punishment. I believe that this is a barbaric practice and we as Christians must treat people with respect, especially our children. This does not mean the children should run your household, it means you teach respect to gain respect. Would you consider treating another adult as you are purporting to treat your children? How would you react if you were struck on a daily basis by your boss or minister when you made a mistake? That is the role that you take in your child’s life. You are the boss/leader so discipline them with the respect that you expect on a daily basis from the people in your life.

Dr. Dobson hits a home run. This is a must for any parent struggling with parenting period. It gives a sense that you are not alone in this journey to raise your children even it turns out that you do not have a strong willed child. Before reading, I was certain I had a strong willed child, but after listening, I determined that I needed to adjust some of my dicipline techniques and not blame my children. The book also affirms my belief in spanking and the way it should be administered.
