Overview

Discipline is not a four-letter word.

As a respected child psychologist and mom with more than 20 years' experience, Dr. Ruth Peters knows that kids can be manipulative—and she offers parents a positive, no-nonsense approach to bringing about family harmony.

Kids know exactly what to do when their parents relinquish authority—take advantage! Don't Be Afraid to Discipline focuses on several ineffective parenting styles that kids thrive on, such as the emotionally needy parents or the happiness-seeking parent. Dr. Peters also helps parents identify which tactics their children like to use best, whether it's provoking parental guilt or pitting Mom against Dad. Don't Be Afraid to Discipline helps parents avoid these common pitfalls by establishing clear, consistent, fair rules for both themselves and their kids. There are no surprises and no complaints, because the kids know exactly what will happen if they misbehave.

The book features behavior management charts tailored for elementary middle and high schoolers, information on attention deficit disorder, specific advice on the special disciplinary problems of single parents and stepfamilies, and a frank discussion about children who are seriously troubled. Don't Be Afraid to Discipline is a welcome approach to child misbehavior for weary parents in need of simple, direct answers.

    Long Term Success!

    I read this book about 3 years ago and implemented it with my 9 year old daughter. I must say we stuck to the chart for at least a year consistently. Three years later we have virtually eliminated the chart and her behavior is still consistent! Excellent book!
