What People are saying about this

T. Berry Brazelton
Beyond Discipline contains advice from a well-known and well-respected psychologist whose interest is in children's optimal development. His advice is sound and well-measured. Any parent can use it well to make the decisions they must make.
Elizabeth Lyster
Discipline does not always mean punishment. By closely following the techniques given in this book for "time-outs", I've been able to eliminate several of my toddler's tantrum behaviors (like banging his head on things when he's mad) within one to two days, WITHOUT punishing him. This very special and QUICK AND EASY-TO-READ book teaches parents to teach our kids self-quieting skills that are crucial to their survival in life. I think if all kids were taught to calm themselves down, our society and our world would be a lot more peaceful!
