Read full description of the books Parenting Isn't for Cowards:
I read this book because I've recently become a stepmom and I have no children of my own. It discusses the "strong-willed" and the "compliant" child and some of the statistics and behavioral traits about each. It didn't so much provide help in practice, but Dobson discussed societies new tendency to blame the actions of a child on good/bad parenting and encourages parents not to buy into that. I also liked that he said sometimes you don't necessarily like your child's personality and that it's normal to feel that way because children are people and just because they came from you doesn't mean they're born with a compatible personality to yours. He uses a few illustrations to encourage parents (especially moms) to be firm. The parent has to establish that they are in charge and sometimes that means punishing them far more than you're comfortable with (if they're especially strong-willed and defiant that is). He makes the point that it's easy to take the compliant child's willingness to obey for granted and it's important to consciously let them make some of their own decisions, like picking out their own clothes. It gave me a lot to think about and helped me to see some of my step-childrens' actions in a different light.
