The Positive Disciple books came highly recommended to me but I never got around to reading any. I was very excited to have the opportunity to read this one. I love that is book isn't about punishment, instead it looks into the child's development and provides techniques that help continue having a strong bond with your child. I also like how it has a section on parenting children with special needs. So many books provide techniques for children that are typically developing but nothing for those that have (or in my case work with) children with special needs. Overall I found this book very helpful and look forward to checking out more the the Positive Discipline books.
