How to Raise Well-Behaved Children

Dawn Lighter has written a breakthrough book that will change the way you think about and practice discipline. She believes teaching children good behavior is much easier, more productive, and more pleasant than focusing on punishing bad behavior.

This book lists fifty simple techniques for teaching children good behavior:

  • ten ways to avoid conflict (e.g., how and when to distract your child, offer choices, and walk away)

  • ten ways to improve communications (e.g., how to use effective body language and set clear boundaries)

  • sixteen ways to use consequences (e.g., how to use natural consequences and how to avoid empty threats)

  • four ways to shape a child's environment (e.g., how to simplify and enrich the home environment)

  • ten ways to meet parents' needs (e.g., how to use relaxation methods and visualization in parenting situations)
