When my son turned 3.5 y.o., the discipline strategies that used to work with him suddenly stopped working. This book was v. helpful in addressing the problem instead of just the symptoms.
I was cautiously optimistic when I started having family meetings (the book said children as young as 3 y.o. can participate), and to my delight he does participate in these meetings. He hasn't quite come up with his own suggestions yet, but he's been agreeably following most of the things that we decided in family meetings (sometimes without prompting!)
