Eating, Sleeping, and Getting up: How to Stop the Daily Battles with Your Childby Carolyn Zoe Crowder
Synopses & Reviews
Renowned for her no-nonsense, realistic, and extremely effective advice, parenting expert Carolyn Crowder has observed that the ultimate parent-child standoffs center around mealtimes, bedtimes, and the start of day. For anyone whose child is more likely to rise and whine than rise and shine, Eating, Sleeping, and Getting Up restores sanity to the household, with proven insights on:
-Why nagging, reminding, coaxing, or bribing don’t work in the long run
-How to break the cycle of arguing, threatening, and spanking
-The keys to starting a new-and-improved routine
-Specific language for ending a variety of standoffs
The skills Crowder teaches here can be applied to any parenting situation. Presented in a concise, clear format and complete with worksheets of exercises for both adults and kids, Eating, Sleeping, and Getting Up is a lifesaver that will help end the chaos forever.
A child psychologist provides parents with commonsense advice on how to deal with children at mealtimes, bedtimes, and the beginning of the day, sharing tips on how to develop an improved routine that will alleviate child-parent standoffs.
