Overview


Put an end to painful power struggles with your children!

Why is it so difficult sometimes to get kids to listen? You ask your child to turn off the TV, do her homework, or get ready for school or bedtime. You know he heard you, but he ignores you. You ask again and still...no response. You've tried everything-time-outs, nagging, counting to three-and nothing seems to work.

In If I Have to Tell You One More Time..., founder of the popular online parenting course Positive Parenting Solutions Amy McCready presents a nag- and scream-free program for compassionately, yet effectively, correcting your children's bad behavior.

In this invaluable book, McCready shows parents how an understanding of the psychological theory espoused by Alfred Adler (1870-1937) can put an end to power struggles in their households. Adlerian psychology focuses on the central idea that every human being has a basic need to feel powerful-with children being no exception to the rule. And when this need isn't met in positive ways, kids will resort to negative methods, which often result in some of the most frustrating behavior they exhibit. If I Have to Tell You One More Time... provides the knowledge and tools parents need to address the deeper issues that inspire their children to misbehave. Read this book and rediscover the joy of parenting!

Editorial Reviews

"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!"
