This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to discipline your child positively and effectively as early as the toddler stage. It takes a responsible adult to raise a responsible kid. Children who are able to learn to distinguish right from wrong eventually grow up to be good family members and good members of the society. In time, they themselves become good parents. Child discipline is not about exercising power over your child. It's not about punishment either. Instead, it's about setting clear boundaries and consequences so that in turn, the child will learn how to regulate his own behavior. Simply put, it's not about controlling your child. It's about showing your child how to control himself. In this book, you'll find valuable parenting strategies on how to correctly discipline your children. More than that, you will also learn ways on how to avoid spoiling them. If there's one thing that you need to know about kids, it's that they learn through imitation and thus, your daily actions speak louder than your words. To them, mom and dad are total rock stars. Because of this, you need to make sure that whatever you do in front of your children is worth emulating. You'll be surprised to learn that when you yell at your kids, they don't always hear what you're saying. Instead, a stronger message reaches them: "Mom/Dad is yelling. It's alright to yell." A synopsis of what you will learn in this book: -How to discipline your child at an early age -20 rules on how to discipline your child -How to avoid spoiling your child -Mindful Parenting-discipline without shouting

Release Date: 2009-01-06
Genre: Family & Relationships

Parenting expert Carl E. Pickhardt brings his considerable experience to tackling the most pervasive and difficult problems parents face in childrearing. Whereas many books on family conflict focus on the prickly teenage years, Pickhardt takes the long view and treats a broad range of ages--starting from the early toddler years all the way through college. He empowers parents to turn conflict into an opportunity to engage with their children on a deeper level. Readers will learn to: - Manage emotion during a fight so that you can hear the feelings behind the vitriol without taking offense. - Give criticism to children in a way that focuses on the behavior and not the person. - Find a hook inside silent tension that will let you connect with your children's feelings and show them a way to empathize with yours. - Consider your children's point of view during a disagreement and teach them to voice their grievances with respect. With a distinctive emphasis on how to distinguish types of conflict dependent on age and gender, Pickhardt shows parents how to turn the daily battles into opportunities for growth. This is a practical guide that helps parents confront difficult issues with which all families grapple.

Genre: Business & Economics

A smart, easy-to-implement, and unique approach to positive disciplining Drawing on her highly successful methods developed in her private practice, Dr. Cristine Chandler lays out clear, step-by-step instructions to help parents foster good behavior in their children based on the positive premise: that children behave well when they understand clearly what is expected of them. Most discipline problems occur when parents are inconsistent about what they expect. Four Weeks to a Better-Behaved Child shows parents how to implement the "4Cs" of discipline in their daily practice: use clear, consistent, contingent consequences. Moreover, in this concise, straightforward book, Dr. Chandler challenges several commonly used approaches to discipline and provides alternatives. She shows parents: Why punishment is often the least effective way to discipline children Why anger never works Why "time-out" works only sometimes--and what to do instead How to use consequences to encourage--and get--good behavior

Keep Calm and Parent On

Author: Emma Jenner
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781476739564
Release Date: 2014-07-15
Genre: Family & Relationships

From a modern-day Mary Poppins and the former star of TLC’s Take Home Nanny comes a holistic and guilt-free approach to parenting children ages seven and under. Emma Jenner lives, teaches, and nannies by this philosophy: if parents are in control, they can enjoy their children more. And what could be more enjoyable than well- behaved, respectful, healthy, thriving kids? Keep Calm and Parent On effectively places parenting expert Emma Jenner on your shoulder, helping you see your child’s behavior from an objective standpoint that puts you firmly in charge. Each chapter opens with a checklist of questions to ask yourself when you run into a specific problem, whether it’s sleeping, nutrition, communication, manners, consequences, or self-esteem. Jenner then breaks down each checklist, explaining how bad behavior is really just a habit that needs to be corrected. By connecting the dots in all areas of your child’s life, you can understand why he or she is acting out—and how to fix it. For example, the best discipline techniques in the world won’t work if a child is sleep-deprived, and a child will not demonstrate good manners if communication is faulty and he doesn’t understand what’s expected of him. Each chapter also features handy sidebars, as well as instructive and memorable quizzes. A strong proponent of raising our expectations, Jenner shows how parents can do more by doing less for their children. With an interactive format and straightforward solutions, this invaluable guide is designed to give parents bite-size takeaways they can use immediately with their children. Jenner’s blend of British and American parenting styles is more than advice; it is proof that all children are capable of behaving—and that you have the keys to unlocking their potential.
