How to Behave So Your Children Will Too: A Collection of Entertaining Stories and Practical Ideas Gathered from Real Pareby Sal Severe, Tim McCormick, John Dossett (Read by)
Dr. Sal Severe maintains that "children learn what they live...your children do as you do." How to Behave So Your Children Will, Too! is based on his belief that a child's behavior is often a reflection of the parents' behavior. Instead of focusing on what children do wrong, this book teaches parents what they can do right, by focusing on the positive--reinforcing the good behavior instead of criticizing the child, being consistent--not giving in to misbehavior just to placate the child, and being more patient--recognizing that children operate on a different time schedule. Based on stories, ideas, and solutions from the more than 20,000 parents who have attended Dr. Severe's workshops, How to Behave So Your Children Will, Too! is a book that will entertain, comfort, and make parenting simpler and more enjoyable.
Dr. Severe has spent the last 25 years working with behavior disordered children, as a teacher, counselor, principal, school psychologist, and director of special education. In How to Behave So Your Children Will,Too!, he combines expertise with his own brand of practical, easy-to-follow advice that teaches parents how to be consistent, manage their anger, prevent arguments and power struggles, and make discipline simple, making their lives easier. In the 1960s, Dr. Spock revolutionized the way parents raised their children. Now, Dr. Sal Severe is destined to become the next guru of child-rearing for parents, grandchildren, and children.
