Discipline Without Angerby Jerry Adams Ph. D.
To help parents effectively discipline their children without
Child Psychologist Jerry Adams recognizes that many parents rely on restrictions, yelling, or spanking for discipline but that they rarely see lasting changes for their efforts. They are frustrated and discouraged with their children's behavior, but they are unsure how to make their discipline work.
To help parents effectively discipline their children without relying on punishment, Dr. Adams has written Discipline Without Anger: A Parents Guide to Teaching Children Responsible Behavior. This book provides a comprehensive strategy for teaching children to meet expectations in the first place, rather than waiting for them to misbehave and then punishing them for their misbehavior.
Discipline Without Anger is based upon the author's work with hundreds of families. The author developed, presented, and refined the approach over nearly two decades of working with children and their parents in his role as a child psychologist in a large health care system.
Utilizing feedback from the parents about what does and does not work, the author provides an effective, loving alternative for teaching children to assume appropriate levels of responsibility for their own behavior. Readers will learn principles underlying child behavior and will also learn detailed steps for developing structured home programs tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of their own families.
Discipline Without Anger is intended for busy parents, whatever their life styles and whatever the ages, types of behavior, and levels of cooperation of their children.
Discipline Without Anger:
Â· Guides parents to develop, implement, and maintain their own home program;
Â· Shows parents how to extend their influence to settings where they cannot be with their kids;
Â· Gives parents detailed guidelines for ending inappropriate behavior, both at home and away; and
Â· Provides parents with numerous examples illustrating how the approach can be adapted to all sorts of situations.

I highly recommend this book for any family, or counselor. According to many psychologists, children who are frequently exposed to anger often become adults who use anger to control everyone they basically come in contact with. This book addresses a huge modern problem within the United States, while covering every aspect of anger within the family unit and is extremely helpful for time-pressed families, who don't have time to communicate well, or at all. This book is clearly written, well-organized, and is a valuable guide in directing how to calm family storms.

His expertise in preventive medicine is not only the best medicine of all, but is a lifesaver in hopeless situations. Depending on whether parents and professionals alike read, or did not read this book can make a huge difference on mommy moments, daddy moments, and you're about to go off the deep end moments.
