The pioneering experts behind the bestselling The Whole-Brain Child now explore the ultimate child-raising challenge: discipline.
A breakfast bowl gets thrown across the kitchen, splattering milk and
cereal all over the wall. Or one of your kids threatens a younger
sibling. Or you get a call from the headteacher’s office for the third
time this month. What do you do?
No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road
map for dealing with such tantrums, tensions, and tears – without
causing a scene. Based on recent discoveries about the brain that give
us deep insights into the children we care for, what they need, and how
to discipline them in ways that foster optimal development, this book
offers a ‘relational’ approach that builds on children’s innate desire
to please their parents and get along well with others.
Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authors’ suggestions to life, No-Drama Discipline
presents clear messages in a practical and inviting format. Using these
techniques, you can discipline your children in a way that’s high on
relationship-building, high on respect, and low on drama and conflict.
As a result, your life as a parent will be easier, and your parenting
will become more effective. And more importantly, you’ll create
connections in your children’s brains to build emotional and social
skills that will serve them now and throughout their entire life – all
while strengthening your relationship with them.
