• Be a good boss. Insist on appropriate rules that will make children feel safe, and teach them to use self-control.

• Prepare kids for the real world. Give them what they need (boundaries, rules, and consequences), not just what they want.

Together, these principles add up to an overarching philosophy on discipline that helps you be the best parent you can be—and raise the best kids!"
