A gift to the protection of the human rights of children, The Road to Positive Discipline: A Parent's Guide weaves a comprehensive tapestry of analysis, resources, logic and compassion. Talbot advises a shift in attitude toward children to include them in the love, respectfulness and rights protections we hold basic to humanity. For anyone yearning to see clearly, the work offers a thorough deconstruction of the faulty logic, prejudice and inhumanity of violence toward children as well as in depth explanations of the emotional abuse inherent in relating punitively to loved ones. Stumbling blocks are removed one by one so that all adults can create environments conducive to positive discipline by understanding and working in harmony with natural child development. For parents, Talbot's book is the gift of trusting that the intuition to nurture is the key to happy, successful, self actualized children with affirmations of the natural inclination to give our children the best of ourselves. Based on a career in family counseling and his experiences as a father, Talbot provides excellent concrete and practical methods of teaching safety for those seeking to protect the most important relationships and people in life. For educators and child care providers, it is a golden resource to gently provide to families in need - a powerful, logical message that can be shared in a non intrusive way. The inviting design, concise flow and well laid out material facilitate easy reading while retaining professionalism. For anyone healing from childhood wounds it is a voice of assurance, listening, consideration, being heard, understood, respected and validated. It's everything mistreated and abused children have reasoned and wanted to communicate to adults who were hurting them to remind the adults to relate from empathy. For the future, The Road to Positive Discipline: A Parent's Guide is an affirmation that the way forward is enlightened. Talbot explains that as children are safe enough in their lives to develop to a natural stage of altruism, the world reaps the benefits of more patience, kindness, tolerance, emotional maturity and love, and most importantly, the full expression of each unique person's caring and talents from a place of inner and outer well being.
