I was happy to see this article in circulation because it basically describes "positive discipline," a non-punitive form of discipline, which emphasizes the importance of communication, encouraging kids to problem solve, and family meetings. My kids are only 1 & 3, but we are in the practice of having a weekly family meeting. It is empowering for our 3 year old to be able to have his "joys" and "concerns" heard, as well as work on problem solving. (Most of his concerns are over his 1 year old brother: taking his toys, etc.)
