I literally have a row of parenting books!! This is my favorite so far, it's an easy read and it keeps you wanting to read more. The author is great, she's a real mom who has done the research for us!! I am pregnant with my 2nd and my first is 3 years old. I actually let each chapter sink in and do the following work to better myself as a parent and in general. I recommend this book to all parents, parents to be and even grandparents and caretakers to understand the philosophy better!!5 plus sta [...]

I wanted to love this book. It has some great stuff, some unrealistic stuff, and a lot of basic information on positive parenting. It doesn't really account for differently wired kids and asynchronous development. It also glosses over how truly challenging it is to embrace and put into practice this type of parenting. The overly-simplified, "this is a magical cure all for every parenting challenge ever," sunshine and rainbows feeling was off-putting to me.

I liked some things she had to say, but she mentions letting the child feel like they have a say in their life but rarely mentions real opportunities for them to make their own decisions and learn from the consequences.

Some really good points to try to remember in the midst of this fun thing called parenting.

This is the parenting book I’ve been looking for! I only wish I found it sooner. It affirmed all of my natural instincts that I’ve been ignoring in order to “act like a parent should”. It gives useful methods for putting positive parenting in place and dispels misconceptions that being nurturing and loving means you have to be permissive too. I like how he author pulls together key research findings from top neuroscientists and psychologists to present a holistic approach to positive par [...]

I loved this and highlighted whole pages of it. I loved that it gave practical tips while mostly focusing on behaviors and tips for the one person I actually can control

Un livre intelligent, utile, remplis d'outils et de questionnements essentiels pour cheminer en tant que parent et être humain. Pour ramener la RELATION HUMAINE, l'empathie, l'échange entre nos enfants et nous. Clair, pertinent, rapide à lire sans couper les coins ronds.

Three stars for the information/advice, two stars for the presentation (a little too rainbows and puppies for me).

Excellent. One of the best books I've read that deals with parenting in a really long time. I highly recommend it to all parents or anyone who intends to become a parent one day. You will learn invaluable skills to make your family successful and happy.

I enjoyed this book. Not the usual type of book I read but as a parent I thought why not. The author did a great job engaging the reader. I feel I have grown as a parent from reading this book. I would definitely recommend it to other parents who want to examine their own parenting style.

Positively a good read. Nice to see positive parenting not push over parenting. I won this in a contest and I was happy to ready it.

I don't often give 6-star reviews, but this book deserves one for sure! Despite not agreeing with the author on every single point she makes, I felt energised, empowered, enlightened even by reading this book. This isn't your usual 'self help' book which promises to turn your life around in 5 simple steps. This book gives us access to a mindset, an attitude, which we can employ to help us improve our relationship with our little ones, in the short and long term. Interestingly, the first half of [...]

Overall, I liked this book. I think the general principles are good. I think the author carries a few things to extremes, but that I can take with a grain of salt. I love the idea of forming a family mission statement. I also see the value of showing children unconditional love while still setting and holding limits. I will definitely be implementing many of the techniques set forth in this book as my child(ren) grow older.

The author has some good ideas, but upon closer reading you discover a lot of these are taken from other researchers or writers of parenting books. Her strength is in repackaging the ideas into an easy-to-read format, which I can see being helpful for a lot of parents. She's also very encouraging, although for me a little too happy-clappy and improbable. I think I prefer books with a heavier emphasis on research.

Easy to read with some core concepts of communicating and relating that apply beyond parenting. Less prescriptive than some parenting books. Like most concepts around relationships much easier to write or read about than to put into practice but definitely worth the effort. Many concepts I am already working on and some great reminders of things that I have wanted to do and fallen away from. I would definitely recommend it to other parents.

"So often, children are punished for being human. They are not allowed to have grumpy moods, bad days, disrespectful tones, or bad attitudes. Yet, we adults have them all the time. None of us are perfect. We must stop holding our children to a higher standard of perfection than we can attain ourselves."

Simple repetitive great readI liked how it was outlined with the suggestion on parenting, examples and then a summary of what it suggested. It made for a quick read.

This is another nice resource to add to my library for parents who are struggling with their children! I also enjoyed some tips and tricks that I hope to incorporate into my own household!

Mostly focused on changing our attitudes towards parenting and children. Though, there is some practical advice here as well

Just incredible. I wish I would’ve learned this approach 3 years ago.

Good as an overview to this parenting approach. Serves primarily as a helpful introduction / starter book.

I will read this again and maybe even buy it. Short and actionable and really helpful, combined with the setting limits for strong willed children.

The overwhelming feeling of feeling like I am destroying my child, sometimes got to me. The book is real, no non-sense and requires you to do something hard but we should want to work for those things that are the most special and for the things we love. A small part of me feels like, books like this, are geared towards people with money and that is something I do not have right now, so getting the necessary therapy becomes hard when you can't pay for it, it is also geared for mothers which does [...]

Rebecca Eanes offers several parenting tools as friendly suggestions, based on love, mindfulness and modern scientific findings that can be used immediately, as well as over time, to strengthen the entire family.Ever since I started following her Facebook page, Positive parenting: toddlers and beyond, I have been introduced to so many seemingly simple ideas that have really made a profound impact on my mothering heart. My favorite part is how she accepts that we all make mistakes and shows what [...]

This book is well-laid out, easy to read, and has some practical steps. To be honest, I only went through about a third of it. I feel like I've done quite a bit of "self work," and so this book just wasn't quite for me. It's all really exceptional stuff, but I'd say that it's more for someone who is at the beginning of her journey as a parent and/or personal development.

I really needed quick simple reminders and suggestions to help me parent better in the season I'm in. This book was exactly that! Quick, simple easy to put into action. Getting the heart of my kids is the priority in our parenting and this book offered lots of ways to do that, reflection on why I react the way I do and how to change where I need to.

This book has some really great ideas, but not enough specific examples. I understand why she didn't do this (she emphasizes that you need to apply as you see fit), but I felt the philosophies were a bit too generic and wishy-washy to really be helpful.

Great adviceThis book is excellent. I would advise everyone to read it a at least twice and take notes. I've already noticed changes in my own behaviour with my son and excited for the future.


Seems like a good book with some good ideas. I got it for a family member with kids so hopefully she will let me know what she thinks after she reads it and then I will be able to give it a more thorough review.
