Product Description

Punishing a child is a serious affair; in fact it is the most important responsibility of all!

One day, a holy man had the courage to meditate on the essential nature of the best educational method. 

The answer he gave us was drawn from his forty-five years of profound experience both as a saint and educator. 

Who was this saint? His name was Don Bosco. 

Father Augustin Auffray, himself a Salesian and author of the most comprehensive biography of Saint John Bosco, gives a very succinct and simple presentation of Don Bosco's method of punishment. 

"Saint Gregory Mazianzen says that education is the art of arts...How to practice this art? Saint John Bosco did not invent a new method but rather spelled out one old enough to be ever young: the method of the Gospel itself - the time of judgement is not yet, the time of mercy is here...In order to form saints, you must be a saint."

Here then is the advice of a saint. 

Profound. Simple. Effective. 

From the Foreword by Father David Sherry, Principal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy, Ontario, Canada.

I read this book with the intention of learning an idea or two about ways to discipline my four boys (all four years of age and under), but I took away an entirely new methodology... to win over their hearts so that one day when they’re out on their own, they’ll know to choose right from wrong rather than being told what to do. It’s a very succinct read (two hours or so to complete and I’m not a very quick reader!). I’m buying this for family and friends.
