At last, a positive discipline book that is chock-full of practical tips, strategies, skills, and ideas for parents of babies through teenagers, and tells you EXACTLY what to do "in the moment" for every type of behavior, from whining to web surfing. Parents and children today face very different challenges from those faced by the previous generation. Today's children play not only in the sandbox down the street, but also in the World Wide Web, which is too big and complex for parents to control and supervise. As young as age four, your children can contact the world, and the world can contact them. A strong bond between you and your child is critical in order for your child to regard you as their trusted advisor. Traditional discipline methods no longer work with today's children, and they destroy your ability to influence your increasingly vulnerable children who need you as their lifeline! Spanking and time-outs do not work. You need new discipline tools! Help your child gain: Strong communication skills for school, career, and relationship success. Healthy self-esteem, confidence, and greater emotional intelligence. Assertiveness, empathy, problem-solving, and anger-management skills. A respectful, loving connection with you! You will gain: An end to resentment, frustration, anger, tears, and defiance in your parent-child relationship. Tools to respectfully handle most modern challenging parenting situations, including biting, hitting, tantrums, bedtimes, picky eating, chores, homework, sibling wars, smoking, "attitude," and video/computer games. Help for controlling your anger "in the moment" during those trying times. A loving, respectful, teaching and fun connection with your child! "Offers a wealth of ideas and suggestions for raising children without the use of punishment of any kind." Linda Adams, President and CEO of P.E.T. Parent Effectiveness Training and Gordon Training International "The world is in desperate need of gentle, caring discipline techniques. Judy Arnall has created a wonderful, nurturing guide that all parents can benefit from." Elizabeth Pantley, Author of The No-Cry Solution series of books. "Parents always prefer to be loving but often don't know how. Arnall's book debunks all the old beliefs about discipline through painful measures such as punishment, consequences or bribes and provides far more effective and kind ways to raise well behaved and thriving children." Naomi Aldort, Ph.D., Author of Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves BONUS! 50-page quick reference tool guide included

    Jenni Pertuset

    Not a cover-to-cover read, but a troubleshooting guide. A decent resource, especially for parents looking for ideas to transition from authoritarian parenting of their own childhood or the mainstream reward & punishment parenting to more attachment-focused discipline.

    Το βιβλίο είχε μερικά χρήσιμες πληροφορίεςς, συμβουλές και υποδείξεις, που όμως χάνονταν στην απέραντολογία της συγγραφέως. Επίσης μου φαινόταν ότι πολλές φορές ξεχνούσε πως ότι λειτουργεί για τον μικρόκοσμο της δικής της οικογένειας, δεν αποτελεί οικουμενική αλήθεια.

    I thought this book was pretty worthless. Aside from a fairly interesting section on child psychology, she doesn't really say anything of any use whatsoever. She mostly keeps repeating that spanking and punishment don't work but doesn't really give any really specific tools to use as discipline. Plus, there is a whole section in the back that she spends justifying why children should be allowed to watch tv and play video games (yikes!) and actually mentions several times throughout the book how s I thought this book was pretty worthless.

She also says that ice cream is a healthy option for a snack. Ummm, hello? Is this the type of person you want to take parenting advice from? I decided no.

    some good ideas...too lenient in some areas for my liking...ie she says in one part that she put away all competitive games including board games during the ages of 3-7 because children aren't good at losing and it's too frustrating for them...Hello that's why you play games, as an opportunity to teach.turn taking and how not to be a sore loser. Should we not play tag, because heaven forbid we get caught. I just have higher expectations...she basically doesn't want to make children uncomfortable some good ideas...too lenient in some areas for my liking...ie she says in one part that she put away all competitive games including board games during the ages of 3-7 because children aren't good at losing and it's too frustrating for them...Hello that's why you play games, as an opportunity to teach.turn taking and how not to be a sore loser. Should we not play tag, because heaven forbid we get caught. I just have higher expectations...she basically doesn't want to make children uncomfortable or have real consequences ever...that's not realistic in my opinion. The world isn't a fair place, we don't always win and there are very serious consequences for our actions after the age of 12. Mommy won't be able to protect child from these things. It's delusional to raise a child that protected from reality. Love them yes, be don't create an unrealistic world... Just my opinion.

    Great approaches to parenting, discipline, and positive reinforcement. Although I read this for a book club I'm sure I'll refer to it over and over again. Covers birth through age 19. Warning: This is a self-published book with some grammatical and spelling errors. Be forewarned! Great approaches to parenting, discipline, and positive reinforcement.

    First book to intro me to positive parenting, and for that my gratitude is infinite. I went from believing that spanking was just a fact of life, how you were supposed to raise kids, to realizing I can have a peaceful, fun, harmonious home. I do not have children yet, and this is actually a blessing-- that I learned of this before having kids-- because I am practicing on my two nephews.

I do not have children yet, and this is actually a blessing-- that I learned of this before having kids-- because I am practicing on my two nephews. I already have completely gotten rid of even the THOUGHT of spanking while babysitting them, so much so that I was only reminded by somebody else of the idea. This is among my favorite books to recommend to people to introduce them to how radically peaceful your house and parenting can be.

    I really liked the review of this book and interview with the author in the lastest API newsletter so bought the book. Is definitely a very AP book and most mainstreamers will roll their eyeballs at it. This is not for them! I have read most of it and it resonates with me. Sometimes easier said than done, to follow precisely, but it is something to strive for. Thankfully I have been blessed with children who do not test me often.

Sometimes easier said than done, to follow precisely, but it is something to strive for. Thankfully I have been blessed with children who do not test me often. This book reminds me that when they do, there is an underlying reason for it, and how to deal with it without blowing my stack :) Some of the techniques in here I have already figured out, like time-ins instead of time-outs. It is a good complement to Playful Parenting.

    While no parenting book can please everyone, this one is my go-to. I believe in peaceful parenting: kids should be treated respectfully and given loving, secure, stable homes. I believe my role is not only to nurture, but to build a self-reliant child who's responsible and capable of tasks fitting his age. Fans of Dr. Sears and attachment parenting will get the message of this book right off the bat.

Fans of Dr. Sears and attachment parenting will get the message of this book right off the bat. If you are just looking to add to your list of strategies or understand child development a little better, this is a good choice, too. Even teachers will get something from her exhaustive list of problem-solving strategies (my 2 year old bites, my 5 year old whines, my 9 year old tattles...) listed by age group.

    I did like this book. I am not sure if I got the whole 135 tools. I thought she brought up some good not so common common sense ideas. I think I can sum it up in every kid is different and don't be a hypocrite. Like any book of this nature it was of course repetitive...that is to be expected. She frequently brings up anecdotal evidence so not a lot of real research. Even though I am sure this sounds like a negative review, I do think she had some good ideas. I did like this book.

    This book reinforced my beliefs and encouraged me to continue with the parenting practices that made sense to me. It also helped me to discover where some of my own personal issues stem from - the way I was disciplined as a child - and has helped me on my personal healing journey.

    Despite the fact it's taken me most of the year to get through this - parenting books don't tend to be page-turners - I did find this useful. It's full of mostly practical strategies for disciplining/teaching children and I expect to refer to it again.

    Got some ideas from this book. I find these kind of books I pick and choose what seems to make sense and what suits our family. Like I said I found some useful ideas in this one and would recommend it as useful to anyone struggling with parenting and discipline.

    I thought it was filled with great advice- read it when my daughter was under 1 but I am pretty sure it is aimed towards children who are much older. I hope to read it again someday or use it as a reference as she grows.

    I loved the information on anger, both children's anger (to help remind me) and parental anger. Definitely read this book at the right time. I loved the information on anger, both children's anger (to help remind me) and parental anger. Definitely read this book at the right time.

    Lots of useful tips, and clearly laid out by age groups that make sense.

    Ένα χρήσιμο εγχειρίδιο για γονείς ώστε να καταλάβουν την συμπεριφορά του παιδιού. Στην βιβλιοθήκη θα είναι σε προσβάσιμο σημείο γιατί θα χρειαστεί να ανατρέχω συχνά σε αυτό.
