Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Barbara Coloroso's powerful message is that good parenting begins with treating kids with respect. It means giving them a sense of power in their own lives, and offering them opportunities to make decisions, take responsibility for their actions, and learn from their own successes and mistakes. Rejecting the "quick fix" solutions of punishment and reward, she uses everyday family situationsfrom sibling rivalry to teenage rebellion to demonstrate sound strategies for giving children the inner discipline and self-confidence that will help them grow into responsible, resourceful, and resilient adults. Discover:
  • • Three basic tenets to a good parent/child relationship
  • • Why discipline is not learned through threats and bribes
  • • Why teaching a child how to think instead of what to think builds self-confidence
  • • The good news about the strong-willed child
  • • Three alternatives to always saying "No"
  • • How to buffer your children from the dangers of sexual promiscuity, drug abuse, and other self-destructive behavior• Using mealtime, bedtime, toilet-training, chores, allowance, and sibling rivalry as opportunities to help children develop their own sense of inner discipline
