Praised by one reviewer as "the most helpful book on bringing up children you're likely to find," The Omnipotent Child is a realistic and practical guide to remedial parenting, based on the author's forty-plus years of experience as a child psychiatrist. In this book, the author, Dr. Thomas Millar, argues that children need discipline as much as they need love if they are to grow up. The book is not filled with platitudes such as "always find something to praise" or "give him more love." And it is written by a professional who studied the neurology and psychology of child development for fourteen years and then refined that knowledge in his long career as a child psychiatrist and parenting consultant. As Dr. Millar has said, "my experience has taught me that people who go looking for advice on how to rear their children love them or they wouldn't be looking. They don't need to be told to give their child more love. They need somebody who knows the down-and-difficult details of parenting as those in the trenches know them, and can tell them what to do about things when they aren't going well."
