I had challenges reading this book probably because of cultural differences. Below are some quotes: My purpose in writing Creative Correction is to give you hope, not a guilt complex. If, on the I had challenges reading this book probably because of cultural differences. Because He cares so deeply, He disciplines us when we need it. He loves us too much to let us continue down the wrong paths. God allows us to experience difficulties and hardship because, with his help, our problems the grab our attention and help to steer us back on course.
Teaching our children to obey us and our words is primarily to teach them to obey God and His Word… I love that! And this is what He say makes life work. Children who grow up in legalistic, strict environments in which the parents never explain the purpose of discipline will often obey just as long as Mom and Dad are watching, then act up the second their parents turn their heads.
But as we set out to shape our kids, we must first remember that our ability as parents to instill a long term perspective in our children is directly tied to our own commitment to maintain one. Like so much of parenting, it begins with us. When this happens, I restrict them to the same room until they can come up with one version of the story.
As exhausting as toddlers and preschoolers can be, the simplest forms of correction usually work the best with them. Feb 22, Shantelle rated it really liked it Shelves: I decided to read Creative Correction: Extraordinary Ideas for Everyday Discipline for my school reading. It was quite interesting, and also quirky and fun. There was so many ideas in there for correcting common misbehaviors of children. Several, I was really inspired by the simplicity and sensibleness of them. The end result was, I found some helpful, extraordinary ideas on discipline in specific areas.
I would encourage people to read this and get what they can from it. You may just find the very creative correction that works wonders with your child. Jan 17, Cathy rated it it was amazing Shelves: I read this book when my oldest was four, and it had some really good activities to explain the understanding and reasoning behind certain good behaviors. Some of the activities were fun, so when my middle child was four, I did the Bible Study based on this book, and we did the activities all over again.
Now, that youngest child is six, we have done these activities yet a third time as a family. Only my oldest child was old enough to have remembered from before what the "punch line" was going to I read this book when my oldest was four, and it had some really good activities to explain the understanding and reasoning behind certain good behaviors. Only my oldest child was old enough to have remembered from before what the "punch line" was going to be, and she was good not to give it away. This must be good - and effective - if I have chosen to do it three times with my family.
This does not perfect children, but it does help them to understand what they are doing. Some of the activities are as enjoyable as family games, and take about as long, so that we chose to do them over the summer, so as not to interfere with homework time. I would also suggest Joy Berry's "Help Me Be Good" book series for children as helping to explain why we should have good behavior, and the negative, natural consequences of bad behavior.

The one about sloppy homework sounds like a great way to get kids to HATE school work! The hair pulling and hot sauce on the tongue sound down right abusive, imo.

If you really were calm, as she says you should be, how could you possibly intentionally hurt your child? There is something so sexual about all of that, that it is so sick and disturbing to think it is happening between a mother and a little child. And to claim that the child asking to be hit is evidence that is it is good and beneficial to hit your kids is just unbelievable.
You know what's really sick? Lisa Welchel and her book make me feel ill. Mother is the word for God on the hearts and lips of all little children -- William Makepeace Thackeray. I was absolutely shocked. I would not be surprised if there's a Mommie Dearest-type book that comes out twenty years down the line by one of her children. BB code is On.

When he asks where it is, tell him that he'll have to look for it.

These are just a handful of the hundreds of proven, effective ideas for correction. There is also a chapter full of helpful ideas to motivate your children with incentives and rewards that not only curb negative behavior but build positive character qualities at the same time. Effective discipline is based on loving guidance. It is based on the belief that children are born innately good and that our role as parents is to nurture their spirits as they learn about limits and boundaries, rather than to curb their tendencies toward wrongdoing.
Effective discipline presumes that children have reasons for their behavior and that cooperation can be engaged to solve shared problems.

She encourages parents to correct bad behavior and ignore the reason for the behavior. I pity children that are reared like this. I like the end of the book where she has stories and quotes for the different challenges children face such as lying, hitting, not listening, etc.
I can understand this at times but for our family of three young children it was too much for one parent to constantly keep track of. Overall though it was an interesting read, just not the style of correction we were looking for other than that Christian perspective on values was great. One person found this helpful. This is not some theoretical acedemic tome which purports to know best.
Not only did the author actually try the ideas on her own children, she can attest to their effectiveness. Many if not most of the methods discussed have a firm based in developmental psychology and will produce positive results. The author freely admits that not all approaches work with all children psychology again but gives many possibilities to try. Those who believe that discipline is bad for children will find this book troubling.
You will not find the "coddle the criminal" attitude as I call it here.
This is a book for parents who want well behaved children who respect others. Well written with a sense of humor, Creative Correction is easy to read and follow.
