Publisher Comments:

Parents who love their children but don't always love their children's behavior-or their own responses to that behavior--will find powerful help in this book, which offers new discipline tools for new times. Dr. Becky Baileys unusual approach to parenting has made thousands of families happier and healthier. Why? Because her methods help parents as well as children maintain self-control while building confidence and competence in conflict situations.

Based on Dr. Bailey's more than twenty-five years of work with children of all ages, Easy to Love, Difficult to Discipline first helps parents become aware of how they treat themselves-because how we discipline ourselves is how we discipline our children. She teaches Seven Powers for Self-Control, which dramatically increase our resourcefulness in any sticky, situation with children from toddler through school age. From these we learn Seven Basic Discipline Skills to help children move "from willfull to willing" in day-to-day encounters at home and at school. As children internalize these skills, they naturally acquire Seven Values for Living, which include integrity, respect, compassion, responsibility, andmore.

Down-to-earth anecdotes show the process in action, and a seven-week program gets parents off to a quick start. The results far exceed most parents' dreams. Using the examples, expertise, and humor that have endeared her to families nationwide, Dr. Bailey gives us the tools to stop policing and pleading, and start being the parents we want to be.Parents who love their children, but who don't always love their children's behavior--or their own responses to that behavior--will find powerful help in this book that offers new discipline tools for new times.
