Publisher Comments:

Some of us are just naturals when it comes to parenting. But the rest of us wish that parenting came with operating instructions.

Now it does. The result of thirty years of scientific research, Alan Kazdin’s The Everyday Parenting Toolkit will guide you through every developmental stage—from toddler to teenager—and make you a more relaxed, confident, and competent parent. The rigorously tested strategies in this book will not only help change your child’s behavior, they will also decrease the stress in family relations, increase your joy in parenting, and help build a more nurturing home life that can directly improve children's mental and physical health and school success.

You won’t find abstract philosophy here. You’ll see every point, every strategy, illustrated with real-life examples. From toilet training to teaching a child to accept “no” without a tantrum all the way up to struggles over cellphones and curfew; from swiftly and gently correcting problem behaviors to fostering positive character qualities like respect for others, honesty, good friendships, or altruism, The Everyday Parenting Toolkit will surprise you time and again with counterintuitive advice that works.

For years parents have been coming to Dr. Kazdin’s Parenting Center at Yale University for help with the challenges, large and small, of child rearing. With the publication of this book, every reader can gain access to that advice and to parenting know-how that transforms families.

Synopsis:

Offers advice to a current generation of parents on how to develop empathetic yet disciplined child rearing skills that place an emphasis on good communication and avoid negative reinforcements.

Synopsis:

Effective strategies for everyday child-rearing challenges from Dr. Alan Kazdin, director of the Yale Parenting Center—world-renown as the gold-standard for distilling the most useful parenting research from recent years into simple strategies that really work.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [221]-224) and index.

Synopsis:

Over the past thirty-five years, Between Parent and Child has helped millions of parents around the world strengthen their relationships with their children. Written by renowned psychologist Dr. Haim Ginott, this revolutionary book offered a straightforward prescription for empathetic yet disciplined child rearing and introduced new communication techniques that would change the way parents spoke with, and listened to, their children. Dr. Ginotts innovative approach to parenting has influenced an entire generation of experts in the field, and now his methods can work for you, too.

In this revised edition, Dr. Alice Ginott, clinical psychologist and wife of the late Haim Ginott, and family relationship specialist Dr. H. Wallace Goddard usher this bestselling classic into the new century while retaining the books positive message and Haim Ginotts warm, accessible voice. Based on the theory that parenting is a skill that can be learned, this indispensable handbook will show you how to:

• Discipline without threats, bribes, sarcasm, and punishment

• Criticize without demeaning, praise without judging, and express anger without hurting

• Acknowledge rather than argue with childrens feelings, perceptions, and opinions

• Respond so that children will learn to trust and develop self-confidence
