You’re punished without... going out, without your pay, without your mobile phone, without the game console, without computer, without football... We don’t know what else can we make up to make our children fullfil their obligations. It’s the trendy punishment, but most of the parents complain that it does not even work, and they admit that they no longer know what to do to make their children react. Discipline is necessary, but it shouldn’t be based in the child’s fear: it should favour thought as means to know the reason and the reach of the offense, at the same time that he is advised about what is the right action.
The author has the great ability of mixing psychology and child education in a simple way, without ambiguities and in a straightforward language, close to the reader.
It includes some examples that help understand the text better, and the book is also divided by ages, so that the reader can find the best method to use, from zero to seventeen years.
