This manual on how to raise bewildered, resentful, and dependent children is more frightening with each successive page. The author describes a variety of "creative" punishments, including forcing a child to wear leg weights or to stand sleepless for long periods, handcuffing children to each other, denying bathroom visits, applying hot sauce to a child's tongue, and public humiliation. She also describes videotaping her children's struggles with these bizarre punishments. Many techniques would be regarded as abusive and illegal in most of the US. The book seems to acknowledge this, as it recommends applying some of the more violent or outlandish methods in private to avoid the attention of child protective services.

Aimed at Christian parents, the book recommends using the Bible in some punishments: for example, a disobedient daughter is required to listen to tapes of the Bible rather than a favorite audiobook. Whelchel does not appear to recognize that using an activity as punishment will cause a child to see it as unpleasant, and that this practice could build aversion to the Bible. She states that these methods "come from the Holy Spirit" and equates herself with God when using them, suggesting that any parent who does not use them cannot be a good Christian or raise Christian children. The concepts of tolerance, allowance for individual differences, or striving for Christ-like behavior are utterly absent.

The most disturbing aspect of the methods Whelchel recommends is that she is apparently completely oblivious to their long-term consequences. For example (page 138): "As we walk along together shopping, I will suddenly give them silly commands that they must obey without arguing, such as 'Walk backward,' or 'Stop and touch your toes,' or 'Give me a kiss.' Occasionally I'll throw in a real command, like 'Don't touch that,' or `No, you may not have an Icee.' My favorite curve, however, is to say no to some reasonable request, like 'May I go to the bathroom?'" Likewise, she makes frequent references to "throwing a curveball" that will keep her kids off guard. These actions teach only that parents' behavior may be incomprehensible, inconsistent, and demeaning, while children must unquestioningly obey any command, no matter how unreasonable. Whelchel's methods are a recipe for turning children into mistrustful, fearful adults who are unable to make decisions for themselves.

Lisa's writing style is so easy to read. I have read all her books. I especially loved this one and her homeschooling book. As the mother of 3 now teenage children, Lisa speaks candidly and openly about her struggles and creative ways to train and correct her children. I like the way she starts with reminding us all that none of us has perfect children, and we should not judge others. I appreciate her Christian perspective and unapologetic goals for character, moral and biblical training. Her "toolbox" sections are very practical. I highly recommend this as my favorite book on discipline. I am a minister's wife and frequently am asked for book recommendation on many topics. If you really care about how your children are growing up and what type of people you want them to become, this book is for you.
