a great book. It's even more meaningful because Sea Life Park is about 10 minutes from our house.
It's funny, but as I discussed the clicker training with DS and told him about examples in the book he asked if we could buy a clicker for me to use with him. He also pointed out that we could try to clicker-train the dog if it didn't work on DS. For $4 at Walmart, I think it may be a great idea.
When I think about some of the recommended parenting books and articles, they really are extensions of the Don't Shoot the Dog training philosophy.
I've already recommended it to at least 5 people, including the Head of our school and Lower school principal.
Thank you for sharing. Definitely one of my best reads in a while.
Glad you like it, that is too funny about your DS. He sounds like mine, who is always about a half-step ahead of me, it's exhausting (but funny). Mine recently told me (unprompted), "I'm noisy, but I'm sweet." Too true...
I need to get that book back out of my library and re-read it now that DS is verbal and getting ahead of me. I do remember liking it and also that it has good tips not just for ways the things we do shape others' behaviors (for better or worse) but also how we can apply those insights to ourselves.
