I think every parent would benefit from reading Kimmel's book. One of the best aspects is his discussion of his own failures with his own children, but also his description of how he recovered from some of his mistakes.
This would be a good book for heavy disciplinarians to read, but I wonder if they would be able to take on board what he says.
A good aspect of the book is his discussion of how often parents base their discipline of their children on ensuring that other parents approve of them! How true!
There are many amusing and provocative anecdotes, which will make you think.
I also recommend H Norman Wright's "How to Talk So your Kids will Listen."
