Overview

The Revolutionary Program That Gets Your Kids To Listen Without Nagging, Reminding, or Yelling
 
Why does it feel sometimes as if our children have special powers that enable them to tune us out completely? You ask your child to do her homework, get ready for school or bedtime. You think she heard you but . . . no response. You’ve tried everything—time-outs, nagging, counting to three—and nothing seems to work. In this invaluable book, Amy McCready, founder of the popular online parenting course Positive Parenting Solutions, presents a nag-and-scream-free program for compassionately yet effectively, correcting your children’s bad behavior.
 
McCready draws on Adlerian psychology and Positive Discipline, which focuses on the central idea that every human being has a basic need to feel connected and empowered—children being no exception to the rule. According to McCready, when this need isn’t met in positive ways, kids resort to negative methods. In this book she provides parents with a virtual toolbox of strategies they can use to give their children the attention and power they crave—and do away with the misbehaving that adults dread.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"Get off Skype! You're supposed to be doing your homework!" The subjects may have evolved, but, unfortunately, parent-child arguments haven't essentially changed over the decades. Mothers and fathers still wonder "Why do we have the same disagreements again and again? How can we extract ourselves from this endless circle of frustration?" Amy McCready's If I Have To Tell You One More Time possesses an archetypal title, but its psychological approach relies not on Carl Jung, but on his contemporary Alfred Adler (1870-1937). Its strategy rests on the exquisitely simple observation that every human, regardless of age, has a basic need to feel powerful. Finally, an end to "This is the last time I'm going to tell you: Clean up your room!"
