As a new mom, I look to trusted people and sources for wise counsel and advice on resources about parenting. Positive Discipline: The First Three Years by Nelsen, Erwin, and Duffy is part of the family of Positive Discipline books. I was encouraged by my friend, Nichelle, who is working on this method with her little ones. I was especially pleased to find it carried at the Focus on the Family website.
I appreciated the authors’ foundational principles of love and respect paired with useful and practical application techniques. When Jack and I spend time learning and talking about our faith and family, we find that we are better equipped to parent purposefully and intentionally, giving us confidence in our decisions and a great sense of joy.
