5.0 von 5 Sternen Your Self-Confident Baby, 31. Mai 2000
I read this book when my son was 14 months old and began implementing Magda Gerber's philosphy of respect for infants and toddler's. It is amazing to my husband and myself how easy it was to gain the cooperation of our little boy just by explaining what we would be doing and giving him time to participate in his own care.
Primary times for interacting with your child are diapering, feeding and bathing. These times are no longer tasks to be hurried through, but moments of communication and interaction that set the stage for a lifetime of relating.
The book also addresses the needs of parents. It is the first book I have read that truly deals with the family as a unit. Realizing that parents also have needs and are better at parenting when these needs for rest and time apart from the infant are met was very helpful.
Also helpful were the ideas around creating safe areas for Noah to play in ... both indoors and out as a way for him to have space and time alone.
Allowing Noah to have his feelings when something comes up that doesn't suit him was another area that the book deals with. It is ok to be mad or upset or uncomfortable...and as a parent not to distract my son from being upset, which seems to be a knee-jerk response at times. It never occurred to me that just acknowleging Noah's feelings was enough. I didn't have to give in to all the demands to keep peace in the house. In fact, our home is very peaceful since implementing Gerber's ideas.
This is more than just a parenting book. It has helped me be more present with my son.
I only wish I would have discovered this book before we had our son so that I could have done some of the things she suggests earlier in Noah's life.
It is a book that I enthusiastically recommend.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The perfect "new parent" gift!, 11. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Nearly everyday my husband thanks me for having discovered this book (and the RIE approach). It has taught us to be more patient, trusting, and "present" parents. In my desire to be the perfect mother, I could easily see myself doing everything for my son, but this book helped me see how that was exactly NOT what my son wants from me. Learning to offer choices and explaining consequences has given us a positive model for teaching and discipling. And unlike anything else I've read, this approach has taught me that it's perfectly ok if my son and I don't agree on everything -- I can still do what I need/want to do and he can have his own feelings about it without me needing to distract him out what he is expressing (geez, what a complicated way of saying that if he wants to cry while I take a shower, that's ok for both of us!) By modeling respect (most of the time), we are teaching our child how important and capable he is. And so far the "terrible twos" are anything but!! Thank you Magda for devoting your life to infants -- and thank you Allison for sharing her theories with us! I have given or lent this book to every new parent I know with the full confidence that they will pick up at least one thing that will forever affect the way they raise their precious new baby!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The most common sense approach of any time, 25. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
It is often said, "When you don't know what to do, you do what you know." Without the RIE approach, I would have repeated many of the very serious mistakes my mother made.
This book so articulately describes the "how to's" and "why's" of child-rearing. There are very few unanswered questions. It is a wonderful guide book not only for raising children, but for relating to people of all ages. Magda Gerber reminds us that frustration, anxiety, fear and other stresses are normal experiences for parents and children. Even with the struggles life dishes out, one can realistically build a life-long relationship with your infant by modeling respect.
One of the many of the messages I came away with from reading this book is that aside from the obvious fact that parenting is hard work, it also can be fun and we have the right to relax and enjoy it. Magda Gerber presents guidelines that really work because they are so logical. The experiental aspects of the RIE approach in raising an infant are described in a clear, understandable and applicable way. I wish it were required reading for all parents.

This book is now the gift I give to all my friends who are parents or soon-to-be parents. My only criticizm is that the book ended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best how-to book on raising a child from birth to two, 31. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
As a new mother, Your Self-Confident Baby gave me the confidence to raise my son gently, respectfully and in a non-violent way. I didn't believe in spanking before, and Gerber's and Johnson's book supported this. When you have a new baby, everyone--in-laws, other parents, friends, even friends without kids--all know the best way. I wanted to raise my son so he'd still like me when he was older, of all things! There's a saying, that if you let your kids step on your toes when they're little, they won't step all over you when they're older. I like that. These authors have practical things to say about common occurances like changing your baby's diaper... to have it be a positive time, and not a time to chastise them, to shame them. And to let them have a say. This is a book whose time has come. Thank God.

5.0 von 5 Sternen These techniques will help you raise a self confident child, 27. April 2000
I read this book when my son was an infant and used the techniques described herein: no spanking, no tricking (you know, sneaking out the back door so your baby isn't upset), no overstimulation. My son is no longer a baby and he's sweet, kind, calm and can entertain himself. An excellent book on raising a wonderful child.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very interesting, 1. Dezember 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I really like her philosophy of letting each child be who they are without trying to "over teach" our children and that they develop into a more self-confident and secure person when we leave them their space to develop with guidance only where needed.
