Children: The Challenge, by Dr. Rudolf Dreikurs, delivers to parents multiple techniques and guidance on childrearing. In each chapter, the author fully describes a common childrearing problem and then offers his advice and strategy in handling the problem. For example, he provides guidance to parents on matters such as punishment and reward, maintaining a routine, respect for the child or others, the power struggle, tone of voice, and overprotection. Each chapter is very short and covers only one issue at at time thereby making it a very easy and quick read. It can be read in its entirety, or it can be used as a reference guide.
