Summary

Summary

This is a quick book to read when you are calm, to use when you are not

Positive discipline has to begin with positive stress management. All families have stress. Make it work for you

Learn how to recognize stress, manage it, and regain your patience before yelling. Learn why children have tantrums at all ages, and how to help them channel anger into lifelong skills for self-control and communication.

Learn normal childhood development, capabilities and temperament, so you can respectfully and non-punitively resolve everyday family issues.

"Every parent needs patience, and this book has simple, respectful ways to calm down and connect." - Dr. William Sears and Martha Sears, RN, co-authors of The Baby Book and The Discipline Book
