Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Get out of the "discipline zone" with smart love, a patient and caring approach to parenting created and tested by the husband-and-wife team of Dr. Martha Heineman Pieper and Dr. William Pieper. It replaces the old rewards-and-punishments style of parenting that turns parents into disciplinarians, which they don't want to be, and treats children as miniature adults, which they aren't. Smart love encourages parents to understand the world through the eyes of the child, at each distinct stage of development. It helps parents cultivate a child's inner happiness, which is the best means of ensuring the child will grow up well behaved, responsible, self-confident, and able to reach his or her fullest potential.

Review:

"At last! A parenting book that tells dads and moms it's okay to follow their healthiest instincts....Over decades of experience as parents and therapists, the Piepers have developed and tested a positive approach that is successful with all kinds of kids. Whether you're a first-time parent with a new infant, an experienced foster parent, or a clinician working with troubled and troubling teens, you will welcome the good news in Smart Love. You can enjoy a relationship with children that's based on mutual respect. You don't have to get tough — you can get smart!" David S. Liederman, Executive Director, Child Welfare League of America

Review:

"Excellent suggestions on how to be nurturing and compassionate, so that you can help your child become well-adjusted and happy." Ann Landers

Synopsis:

Smart Love shows how putting a child's inner happiness first, not his outward behavior, actually will make hima better behaved, and in the long run, more confident and responsible.

Synopsis:

No parent wants to be a disciplinarian, but most fear that the only alternative is permissiveness. Not so, says Drs. Martha and William Pieper, the husband-wife team, parents of five themselves, who have written this revolutionary new volume based on years on groundbreaking research.
