Have the Terrible Twos become the Terrifying Threes, Fearsome Fours, Frightening Fives, and beyond? Elizabeth Pantley, creator of the No-Cry revolution, gives you advice for raising well-behaved children, from ages 2 through 8

In The No-Cry Discipline Solution, parenting expert Elizabeth Pantley shows you how to deal with your child's behavior. Written with warmth but based in practicality, Elizabeth shows you how to deal with childhood's most common behavioral problems:

  • Tantrums
  • Sleep issues
  • Backtalk
  • Hitting, Kicking and Hair Pulling
  • Sibling fights
  • Swearing
  • Dawdling
  • Public misbehavior
  • Whining ... and more!

"Pantley applies succinct solutions to dozens of everyday-problem scenarios--from backtalk to dawdling to lying to sharing to screaming--as guides for readers to fashion their own responses.

Pantley is a loving realist who has managed, mirabile dictu, to give disciplinarianism a good, warm name."

--Kirkus

"While many books on discipline theory are interesting and enlightening, parents often struggle finding a way to apply the theories. Pantley’s advice is practical and specific. If ever trapped on a desert island with a bunch of kids, this is among the most useful books you could bring along."

--Tera Schreiber, Mom Writer’s Literary Magazine

Review:

"The author of The No-Cry Sleep Solution returns with this guide to helping parents remain in control of their two-to -eight-year-olds. "A child," Pantley points out, "is emotion in motion." She provides a variety of techniques to help rein in out-of-control children, based on a four-part plan that corrects the current behavior, teaches a lesson, helps the child learn control and builds the relationship between the parent and child. Her techniques are not unusual, ranging from telling stories and giving timeout warnings to distractions and simply looking away ("Every once in a while, the best thing you can do for family peace is to turn around, pretend you didn't see it, take a deep breath, and move on to something else"). Where Pantley does break away from the parenting pack is explaining how parents can control themselves. Her suggestions won't be easy for parents to follow, but they make solid sense. The final part of the guide will be the most thumbed-through section: concrete advice for specific problems such as bossiness, sleep issues and sibling disagreements. Attachment parents as well as those looking for a gentle approach will appreciate the wisdom Pantley shares. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Amy BookGirl, July 23, 2015 (view all comments by Amy BookGirl)
I was excited to get this book; then once I had it I gave it one apprehensive look then shelved it--for months. My kids are three and seven, which means I’m pretty heavily invested in my parenting style. The fear of finding out all that I've been doing wrong (once again) was almost enough to keep me from cracking it at all. However, my daily life continually showed me how much room there is for improvement.

I needn't have worried; Elizabeth has raised four children and understands how parenting can try even the most patient of people. She doesn't focus on what we're doing wrong, she only gives us alternatives. In one example, she explains how to make a task a game, if you have a toddler who makes a fuss having his diaper changed, put the diaper on your hand and give it a silly name and voice. Next diaper change might have your little one bringing you a fresh diaper saying, “Mama, time for Dilly Diaper!” Engaging their imagination earns cooperation nearly every time.

You also benefit from her experience as a parent having seen so many people through the many stages of childhood. E.g., a toddler who puts her socks in the dirty laundry may become a teenager who does her own laundry. I hadn’t thought of this in the long-term before, I only saw that having my toddler to pick up her socks required more effort than doing it myself. Elizabeth provides a chart of sample chores for age groups and how to progress with them as they grow. Now that we have techniques for gaining cooperation in our parenting bag, initiating chores isn’t nearly as daunting.

This book works well with the Conscious Discipline style of parenting, formalized by Becky Bailey. Becky’s book gives us the outline and few ideas on how to implement, Elizabeth builds on that positive parenting style and gives us hundreds of ideas all the while nurturing us as parents.

Discipline is not easy, but it need not bring on the feelings of dread in both parents and children when the emphasis is on teaching rather than punishment. Children want to do the right thing, and they want to please us, they just don't always know how to maneuver their impulses. This book is a like having a kind mother-in-law, she pours you a hot cup of tea, lets you cry on her shoulder, then whispers life-altering advice into your ear. Then she cleans your bathroom before leaving.
