This book is the outgrowth of over 25 years of reading and thinking in conjunction with developing and teaching early childhood discipline courses.  Dr. Fields credits her two sons with helping her learn what is most important about child guidance and discipline initially; now she continues to learn from her grandchildren-and with their mother; her new co-author.
