Publisher Comments:

THE KEY TO DISCIPLINE IS NOT PUNISHMENT,
BUT MUTUAL RESPECT
All parents try to do their best--but the best of intentions don't always produce the best results. Dr. Jane Nelsen, an experienced psychologist, educator, and mother, believes that children misbehave when they feel thwarted in their need to belong and in their need for love and attention. An authoritative approach, using phrases like "Because I said so!", will only lead to rebellious behavior. Instead, parents need basic principles that bring them and their children closer. They need Positive Discipline.
Dr. Nelsen explains that parents who use kindness and firmness to teach life skills will encourage self-respect, self-discipline, cooperation, good behavior, and problem-solving skills in their children. In Positive Discipline, revised and updated for the '90s, she shows all of us, parents and teachers alike, exactly how her practical program works--answering, step-by-step, such important questions as:
xWhat works better than punishment to teach children positive, good behavior?
xWhat mistakes do most parents make "in the name of love"?
xHow can parents turn their mistakes into assets?
xHow can praise be dangerous?
xWhat are the dangers of trying to be "Super Mom"?
xHow can teachers avoid discipline problems in the classroom?
"It is positive! It works! It saves your sanity! And it is easy to share with others."
--Julie Pope, Parent
Sacramento, CA
"As a parent and psychotherapist, I have found enormous value and practical wisdom in Positive Discipline. It conveys a win/win atmosphere for parents and children. The techniques are so easy to learn and fun to use...Anyone following these concepts will see almost instant results and big smiles on the faces of their children."
--Katherine Dusay, Psychotherapist
San Francisco, CA

Synopsis:

Parents can learn how to strike the proper balance between permissive and authoritarian parenting using the "Setting Limits" method. Dr. Robert MacKenzie's approach helps parents teach their children how to make acceptable choices and to truly understand the consequences of unacceptable behavior. This book shows parents how to:
-- Set clear, firm limits
-- End conflict and power straggles
-- Communicate rules
-- Encourage cooperation
-- Teach children problem-solving skills
-- Apply consequences of misbehavior
-- Give guidance to teens
-- Solve problems with chores and homework

This updated and revised edition includes chapters on the child-centered family, the parent-centered family, and on how children learn rules. By following Dr. MacKenzie's lead, parents will learn to provide the rational, predictable boundaries their children desperately seek.
