The One Minute Scolding
The Amazingly Effective New Approach to Child Discipline
In the world of nonfiction, many book titles fall under the category of “wishful thinking” or maybe “never going to happen”. Many books fall into this group: diet books, employee engagement, how to have an effective meeting, any get rich book, any books with the word “secret” in the title, cat training, cute maternity clothes, and last but not least, parenting. You will notice that many of these books are featured quite often on ALB.
I don’t mean to sound so cynical. I have run into a some really good parenting books over the years. However, the effectiveness is usually dependent on the personality of the parents and the kids. There is seldom a single solution that works for everyone.
This book is basically a 1 minute shaming followed by love and assurance and focusing on the behavior. I am always skeptical, but I suppose it is better than this horrific parenting book.
