But from a personal point of view, I found the book way too focused on a type of parent-child interaction that is not terribly comfortable for me. Barkley uses the word "compliance" a lot, and always uses it as a positive term.
But those of us who are trying to balance raising obedient children with raising thoughtful children have to take a step back and consider how compliant we want our children to be. Another issue is the token system itself. I agree with Barkley that token systems are a part of our culture -- he points out that workplaces often use token systems to encourage good work. But in our household, we tried a token system and it failed miserably.
Not because I couldn't stand to reward my kids for their good behavior, but because we all kept forgetting about the monetary aspect of it. They just didn't care that much about it, and when we were remodeling the kitchen and I had to put their token jars somewhere else, they never even missed them. The tokens never became as powerful a tool as our clearly expressed pleasure when things had gone smoothly in our household. The other part of his program that is not in my comfort zone is his reliance on a formal relationship between the parent and child.
She emphasizes trust and love rather than unquestioning obedience and a reliance on a token system. My hope is that when I send my kids off into the world, my one clear success is that they will understand how to have a healthy, respectful relationship with another human adult. This is a rather messier way of raising children, to be sure.

If your children are allowed to question rules and your decisions, then you have to be prepared to debate with them. And yes, they will be, in general, less compliant than children who have never been given a choice.
