Positive Discipline for Preschoolers is a wonderful guide for parents and teachers who want to lead their children on the path of good behavior without yelling. It is a book that emphasizes respect, patience, and humor. Many topics are covered, including hitting, bedtime battles, and non-cooperation. Suggestions are given as to how to handle each situation. There is a nice chart called the "Mistaken Goal Chart" which is useful in understanding why a child might be misbehaving, and the best response a parent or teacher could take to help the child behave. Preschool teachers will find the school scenarios useful in handling common situations. I liked the one where a child was refusing to come in after recess. Instead of getting angry and having a battle over the situation, the teacher played a silly game. As a parent, I find myself using many of the suggestions that had been offered. For example, instead of using punitive time outs, which often resulted in battles over getting my children to serve them, I tell them to cool off in Antarctica. Sometimes I even take a trip to Antarctica! Using humor instead of anger has really helped me become a better parent. Positive Discipline for Preschoolers will give caregivers ideas for how to give respectful and often humorous guidance to their children. It is a book I highly recommend.

It's along the lines of positive reinforcement, but with practical advice, and anecdotes to help with context. Someone wise once said 'the mind doesn't know DON'T', and I believe that is true across the board - and especially with kids and this book helps with how to say no less, and how to have fun, smile more, and help your kids gain and keep confidence while not going insane yourself. Thank you!

Finding this book was pure serendipity - it was a title I stumbled across as I was downloading a summary from ParentsDigest . It has really opened my eyes to ways to help my daughter become 'herself' rather than allowing my own personality to drown hers.
