This was mentioned a little while ago on a past thread. A few of us were saying we were reading the book. Has anyone finished reading it? I have just finished it and it wasn't as out there as I had assumed it would be. It actually sounds a lot like my natural parenting style. I do think the no praise thing is a bit odd sounding, but it actually makes sense once you start thinking about it. It doesn't mean we don't celebrate achievements with children but we don't have to praise them for doing things they would do anyway.
