Review: Creative Correction by Lisa Whelchel

 I have owned the book, "Creative Correction" by Lisa Whelchel for a number of years and come back to it time and time again. This is a fantastic resource for any parent with young children. We all know the conventional methods of discipline, this is the unconventional. It is full of great ideas for raising discussions, responses to various parenting dilemmas such as: sibling rivalry, telling lies, disobedience, etc. After each chapter, Lisa has a toolbox full of practical creative ideas for resolving these conflicts. My favourite section of the book is near the end she adds a "toddler toolbox" for young children. Many of the responses were a bit old for my children, so this chapter was much more applicable to my life.

From a Christian standpoint, this book is un-paralleled. Full of applicable scriptures for nearly every circumstance, this is a wonderful way to implement the word of God into your parenting and family. I am confident that Lisa's book will be a part of our family for many years yet to come and HIGHLY recommend it to any family with young children that is looking for something different to help our children "go in the way they should go."
