Is obedience ever really easy? Some might argue that it's impossible! But I disagree.
Parenting will always have its challenges, but with a foundation of understanding and love, and a willingness to meet your child's basic needs, you can apply the techniques in Easy Obedience and experience the pleasure of rearing a child who is generally willing to obey.
This is really a book about the importance of self-discipline. Many parents think that making children obey is what parenting is all about. Instead, our job should be to encourage children to become self-disciplined.
To discipline really means to teach. I've been a teacher of young children, as well as university students for many years, and the same techniques that are successful in the classroom can revolutionize your home. So I offer you a method of discipline based on a foundation of educational theory and practice, coupled with the practical experience of rearing three grown children with my husband, Jan. It is a method that has stood the test of time.
