Better Gentle Discipline books for our style?
We are looking for some Gentle Discipline books, but have been really disappointed with everything we've read so far. We absolutely do not agree with Kohn, but we don't believe in spanking either. We need more in our toolbox other than time outs and taking toys away. We've read several other authors, but they mostly talk about what not to do, and how to talk to kids. That's not what we're looking for. We need some books with ideas for consequences that go beyond just talking to your child, and that go beyond what not to do. We need something that will help us to brainstorm.

Re: Better Gentle Discipline books for our style?
Have you read the Love and Logic series? I was a bit doubtful about them at first because typically that sort of thing just doesn't work with my kids (oldest is autistic and youngest is not diagnosed yet but most likely ODD/ADHD) and I had read Parenting Effectiveness Training which I thought was just an awful book that didn't help at all. I picked up Love and Logic solutions for Special Needs Children which is actually geared towards educators and it made sense, so I started picking up the other books. I own most of them now.
I understand that this one is supposed to be very helpful. I ordered it and just received it today. I am very anxious to read it. It is short and is supposed to just cover ideas of what to do. But I think it is a lot of talking to your kids.
I also picked this one up at Half Price Books this weekend and am excited to read it as well.
