Overview

The Everything Parent's Guide to Positive Discipline: A constructive approach to raising a kind, cooperative, and respectful child by Ellen Bowers

A child talks back to her mother.
A teenager starts slamming doors and giving dirty looks.
A naughty toddler seems to enjoy the negative response he gets from his exhausted parents.

When misbehaviors begin, they can quickly escalate into an uphill battle of yelling, tears, and resistance--on both sides. This guide is a reassuring and realistic resource for parents struggling to find a positive balance with their kids, featuring guidance on how to:

  • Set priorities for children of any age
  • Open the lines of communication both ways
  • Enforce punishments that teach rather than torture
  • Work successfully with your partner
  • Cultivate an environment of mutual respect

With short takeaways at the conclusion of each chapter, this guide is the only resource you need to cope with behavior issues and raise a well-behaved child!
