Boundaries with Kids - Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend

Award-winning Boundaries authors have now adapted that material for anyone working with children. The book has practical tips on how to help your child instill boundaries and self-control in children and to maintain your boundaries as well.

I thought this book was excellent. As I read it, the thought most often in my mind was of situations and scenarios in which I could apply what I was reading about. There were many areas – both with my step-kids and the kids I teach – that I could see myself improving by using the practical ideas Doctors Cloud and Townsend present. I also was faced with the realization of where I let my own boundaries fall and how to shore them up.

It was very well organized and easy to read.


  1. I've read the original Boundries book, it was very revealing. I can only imagine that this would be good as well. Is it distinct enough to earn a read apart from the original?

  2. I have not read the original Boundaries book. Have owned it for years but never read it...yet.
    So I can say without hesitation that Boundaries with Kids can be read as a stand-alone. :)
