    It would have been much better if it was more geared towards single parents without as much help, but had some great ideas. I had to take a class that taught with this book, but it was not the book that should have been chosen for single parents. I'm sure it would be much more beneficial to someone who isn't a single parent without the ability to have family help.

    When people use the word “boundaries” in the context of relationships, the focus is usually on learning to say “no” to folks who are nosy/controlling/entitled. These authors, however, use the word in a broader way. They put a big emphasis on the individual’s need to take responsibility for his own choices and roles in life. You might say they want kids to have boundaries between their wills and their own human tendency to be lazy, passive, and selfish. Their methodology is common sense: Be empat When people use the word “boundaries” in the context of relationships, the focus is usually on learning to say “no” to folks who are nosy/controlling/entitled. These authors, however, use the word in a broader way. They put a big emphasis on the individual’s need to take responsibility for his own choices and roles in life. You might say they want kids to have boundaries between their wills and their own human tendency to be lazy, passive, and selfish. Their methodology is common sense: Be empathetic and loving but let kids experience the consequences of their own actions. A three-year-old might need to realize that abusing a toy means losing it, a ten-year-old that failing to begin a school project on time means getting a poor grade, or a teenager that procrastinating on chores results in staying home to work while others go have fun. Children benefit far more from this than they would from being routinely “rescued” by their parents; and their future bosses, spouses, and friends will benefit, too. Having grown up in a highly functional home with parents who taught responsibility, none of this advice felt new to me; but it would be helpful for moms and dads who need help wrapping their heads around the entire concept that letting their children suffer (when appropriate) is a form of love. The general philosophy was somewhat in line with Stixrud and Johnson’s The Self-Driven Child, but this book is focused more on discipline and saying “no” when needed, whereas that one emphasizes sidestepping conflict by giving a child as much control over his own life as possible (to a degree I disagree with!). I didn’t actually get all the way through this book before it went back to the library, but I’d recommend it to parents looking for a easy-to-read book that provides a sensible mental framework for approaching discipline and boundaries in the home. It's not perfect, but what parenting book is?

    This is my favorite parenting book I’ve ever read. It doesn’t have long lists on how to be a better parent or the fool proof secret for having perfect kids. Lol. But it gets to the heart of the issue many families have and that would be CONNECTION and why exactly your child is not listening to you. And nine times out of ten, it’s because you’re lacking that authentic connection and honesty with your child.

And nine times out of ten, it’s because you’re lacking that authentic connection and honesty with your child. And I love the way the book really deals with the parents first - if you as a parent, as a human, don’t understand how to have boundaries or the essential need for them in YOUR life, how are you supposed to teach your child to uphold or respect boundaries? And that is really what it boils down to - children don’t respect what we ask because nine times out of ten they either haven’t seen us as adults respect other adults or even our own children, or they’ve seen us get walked all over by other adults and not ask for the boundaries we need, so our children think they can treat us no differently. Not that they necessarily think through this so thoroughly, but children learn so much more by observation and intuition than they do by what they hear. Wonderful book that was spot on in many many ways. Only thing I didn’t like was at the very end the author talked about single parents like they’re misfits or not able to give their children everything they need. Strongly disagreed with that. Every parent and family is in strong need of community and help, not just single parents. And there are many families with two parents that are terribly dysfunctional and many families with one parent that are healthy and beautiful.

    I read the first book by Dr Henry Cloud and enjoyed it. This one was decent, too. Notes: If we don't take ownership of our own lives then we aren't in control of it either. Kids need to understand that being unable differs from being uncomfortable. Kids think what they don't enjoy, they can't do. Children always shirk responsibilities but they need to take ownership. We color our experiences with our opinions, wishes, and fears. See Joseph Smith's four different accounts of the First Vision with t I read the first book by Dr Henry Cloud and enjoyed it.

People who are coerced to do something don't have the freedom to make mature or moral choices. Time is a context for healing but not the healing process.

    This was very good. I listened to the audiobook version and it was very helpful to here the author explain the concepts. It was very practical and o found it very encouraging. Parenting is hard, but that is expected. It’s the parent’s job to train a child who doesn’t know anything except concern for self. You help them build character and teach them how to set their own boundaries. This is very important in preparing children for the world. I recommend to any parent, especially the weary ones.

    Boundaries is a great book. Boundaries for kids is the same just specifically for kids. It avoids a a lot of proscriptive "do this " or "don't do that" statements, but rather focus's on some general principles. I can't imagine raising a kid to turn into a functioning adult without the knowledge in this book. Boundaries is a great book. Boundaries for kids is the same just specifically for kids.

    I’ve actually read this twice and think it will be referred to often as I navigate parenting my teen and adolescent... I love the support of rephrasing to support better life skills and the biblical support. I highly recommend this for all parents.

    Leí el libro sin ver el programa de dvd. Es interesante la forma en la que empodera a los padres, desde una perspectiva religiosa, para poner limites a los hijos educándolos a largo plazo y darles estrategias para afrontar sus reacciones producto del ponerlos.

    So far the best, most practical parenting book I’ve read (of 12-15). And, I think all the books I’ve read have been good and helpful.

    Some good ideas that will be most beneficial. It seemed like the Bible quotes were just thrown in to keep it "biblical." Some good ideas that will be most beneficial. It seemed like the Bible quotes were just thrown in to keep it "biblical."
