Overview

"Hands-on, caring advice to make your child gratifyingly, skillfully independent."
Kirkus Reviews

Learn to raise a self-disciplined child is confident, independent . . . and happy.

Raising a Self-Disciplined Child is the groundbreaking book parents have been waiting for—a remarkably positive approach to a style of discipline that builds children up-from the acclaimed authors of Raising Resilient Children. Filled with realistic, practical strategies and sample scenarios, it shows you how to teach your child, ages 6 through 16, the value of self-control, self-reliance, and self-assurance: the all-important skills that will last him a lifetime.

Praise for Raising Resilient Children

“Practical and clear in its suggestions, direct and supportive in its tone, Raising Resilient Children is the perfect book for parents searching for a caring method to help their children grow into healthy, loving, and mature adults.”

—William Pollack, Ph.D., author of Real Boys

“Brooks and Goldstein help mothers and fathers focus on their child's strengths, not on his or her weaknesses. The result is a happier, more resilient child.”

—Michael Thompson, Ph.D., author of Raising Cain

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Resilient people can cope with what life throws their way; parents can help children develop a resilient mindset, an important aspect of which is self-discipline. Brooks and Goldstein (coauthors, Raising Resilient Children) write and speak often about resilience. Here, they advise parents on teaching children self-discipline, an ability to control oneself and understand the effects of actions. Like many parent educators, the authors emphasize that discipline is teaching, not punishing, and is most effective in an environment of empathy and unconditional love. Furthermore, recognizing a child's strengths, or "islands of competence," encourages success and therefore results in better behavior. They illustrate their suggestions with numerous case studies of families they have helped, right down to the details on helpful phrases to use with children in certain situations. Nothing here is groundbreaking (e.g., authoritative parenting works best, children need to learn from mistakes), but the examples of families who achieve success could reassure frustrated parents. Recommended for larger parenting collections.
—Janet Clapp
