A Tablespoon of Love, A Tablespoon of Discipline

Donald L Gandy book cover: A Tablespoon of Love, A Tablespoon of DisciplineThis is the most basic and practical book on parenting that has come forth in the past three generations.  The world may have waited fifty years for such a book as this.  No other book speaks so comprehensively and succinctly to this issue.

The author, Donald L. Gandy lifts the fault from the shoulders of the young and plants it squarely on the conscience of the parents.  He cites the last three generations for negligent parenting and points to leniency and a degradation of family morality as part of the reason behind “today’s homeless, mentally unbalanced, drug dependent, crack babies, unwed mothers, welfare dependents, abandoned children, incarcerated, functional illiterates and other physically and mentally maladjusted individuals.

The book is intelligent, intuitive and at times, humorous.

Using his own daughter as an example of the results to be gleaned from “successful parenting”, the book takes the reader through 352 pages of practical and sound parenting advice.  He champions techniques such as physical punishment when necessary and helpful, tough love and habitual cleanliness and order.  Among the chapters are topics such as “Bend the Tree With Love and Discipline Pressure” and Buy Them the Right Toys for Life’s Conditioning”.
