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.

Parents, Please Don’t Sit On Your Kids

We have featured some truly awful parenting books on this site. Anyone remember this God, The Rod, And Your Child’s Bod we featured back in 2016? You might have tried to suppress the memory. Not only is that title awful, the contents are even more frightening. Or how about this one from 2010?

Thankfully, there is an antidote to the above books.
