Without Spanking or Spoiling

by Elizabeth Crary, M.S.

Second Edition

Reviews and Comments

Two fine titles pack in practical childrearing strategies for parents. . . . Elizabeth Crary’s Without Spanking or Spoiling blends dozens of examples and exercises with the philosophies and approaches of four major child guidance disciplines, presenting chapters which emphasize that spanking a child may increase negative behaviors. Parents learn how to substitute other, equally firm disciplinary tactics.

“Teaches a middle ground between harsh authoritarianism and ‘marshmallow-y’ permissiveness.”
—Montessori director
“A treasure trove of ideas for every parent who has ever felt frustrated, bewildered or discouraged.”
—Alice Honig, professor of child development, Syracuse University
