I thought that this would be a great book to read, regarding anger and frustration and how to deal with it in myself and my toddler. Unfortunately, what I found was that it is greatly mislabeled and is an extremely religious book about forcing children to recognize their guilt so they can realize their sins. An exact quote from the book, found on page 3, 2nd paragraph:
"When you join the boxing match, your children feel attacked and find it easier to blame you rather than focus on what they did wrong. Blame overshadows their awareness of guilt. Romans 12:19 says, "Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath." God's wrath in a person's life often comes in the form of guilt and conviction. As parents, we need to stay out of the boxing ring and allow the Holy Spirit to convict our children of sin."

I'm not religious at all, but I do believe in God, and I certainly DO NOT think that God is anything but Love - so this just seems absolutely wrong to me. On top of it, no where on the book cover does it say that it's religiously written, unless you read the Author paragraph where it says on of the Author's a minister. Don't be fooled by this book, like I was, it will only force it's religion and religious beliefs down your throat and let you know that you're raising your child wrong according to a book, written by a man, thousands of years ago. If something was written that long ago, what does it know of changing times and new research regarding children's behaviours? Nothing.
