A daily challenge for today's parents is incorporating positive discipline techniques and practices that put an end to temper tantrums, defiance and meltdowns. Dr. Jerry Day helps parents develop practical methods that teach children a fundamental attribute: how to willingly live under authority. His successful methods are based on four key principles that parents must instill in their relationships with their youngsters:
1. Tolerance and Acceptance
2. Respect and Admiration
The clear guidance and real-life success stories that distinguish How to Raise Kids You Want to Keep will help end, once and for all, the constant tug-of-war between parent and child.
It seems like a secret. At least I rarely hear or read about the one thing that is essential to raising kids you want to keep. This book is about the one thing parents must support, teach, and do to raise children that they will be proud to keep. The secret is teaching your child to willingly live under parental authority. Until your child learns to live under your authority, there is little hope that he can, as an adult, effectively live under self-control in a society of laws and rules. If he doesn't learn to willingly submit to the authority of his parents, there will be unbearable strain and tension in the home, and likely in the classroom as well. However, children who do learn to live under their parents' authority can grow up to be adults who know how to live under self-control in a complex and demanding society. The adult reward is nothing short of marvelous!

About the Author -
Posted March 12, 2010
I highly recommend this book to all parents. I am a Social Worker and this book is a perfect companion for anyone that feels that they need an Instruction Manual for how to raise children. This book solely focuses on applicable techniques for Behavior Modification. It is very casually written with many, many humorous stories from the author's own life experiences. Each example is easily understood and gets straight to the point.
I have used many of the techniques in the book with my own children and have seen a change in my own parenting style. I am less likely to loose my temper when I am focusing on implementing a technique and better yet, I see results. I find that I slip back into my old habits of discipline and have to focus on the techniques that are taught. Change takes time and persistence. The author not only tells you step by step how to implement the techniques but tells you exactly what to expect and how to deal with the situation when it doesn't work perfectly the first time. I am still surprised at the simplicity of the techniques and find myself thinking, "Why didn't I think of that."
