    Home Run for Elizabeth Pantley

    Elizabeth Pantley has, thankfully, added another book to her ¿No-Cry¿ series. This latest one offers discipline solutions for toddlers and children, aged 2 to 8 years. All types of potentially difficult situatons are covered such as bedtimes, tantrums, not brushing teeth, hitting, bitting, meal times, inappropriate language use and more. She covers not only what the child might be feeling but also the parent¿s feelings. A very helpful section looks at anger, what it means, possible triggers and how our own anger can affect the situation and sometimes make things worse. Pantley offers useful suggestions on keeping one¿s own emotions in check, turning the situation around with distracting methods (make a song out of what you want done, use humour) and offers appropriate consequences when or if necessary. My favorite section has to be Part 4: Specific Solutions for Everyday Problems. When my girls were small (twins and a singleton 22 months their elder), I just didn¿t have time to read psycyologically-based, drawn-out solutions for situations which generally had one child, one adult and the general message ¿follow this advice and all will be well.¿ Yeah right! Not in my house where the parents were outnumbered by little ones feeding off of each other¿s behaviour. I needed quick, helpful, supportive feedback with several possible suggestions to consider in turning things around. Flying by the seat of your pants and/or ¿learning as you go¿ doesn¿t always equal good parenting skills. Pantley clearly and concisely states a situation, for example Sibling Fights. Each begins with a story from a frustrated parent. Pantley asks us to Think About It (in this case Sibling Fights) and addresses what such fights can mean for the child. She then offers step by step ideas on What to Do and, perhaps more importantly, What Not to Do. Pantley cross-references to other areas of the book for additional suggestions. In this case, Biting Other Children Bossiness, Hitting, Kicking and Hair Pulling Playtime Behaviour. Most topics are covered in two pages, making it quick and simple to grab the book (topics are alphabetically listed), peruse the appropriate area, absorb some techniques and get back to the home situation, all in a timely fashion. That¿s my kinda guide! If you have kids aged 2-8 years, this book is a must have. I hope that Pantley will soon add a ¿No-Cry Discipline¿ focused on preteens and teens.
