What People Are Saying

Margie Smith
Having bought this book after seeing Dr. Christophersen on TV and speaking with him about his discipline methods, I couldn't wait to buy this book. What a gift. His techniques respect the child as well as the parents need to discipline their children. All information in the book is concrete and to the point making perfect sense of how we should discipline our children. My son is now 5 years old and I refer back to it regularly. I also teach discipline techniques to parents and recommend this book always.
Matthew Hoag
Little People is essential reading for parents and professionals working with children (day care providers, preschool teachers, elementary teachers, social workers, psychologists). It is "user friendly" and its concepts can be applied by parents very quickly. The emphasis on positively reinforcing a child with time-in is a principle most parents and professionals do not hear much about.

Much of our world is oriented towards punishment and "fixing" a child with time-out or some other consequence. Christophersen reviews these principles and others as ways of assisting children in developing calming skills and respect for themselves and others.
