Publisher's Summary

Discipline is an essential part of raising happy and successful kids, but as more and more parents are discovering, conventional approaches often don't work and can even lead to more frustration, resentment, power struggles, and shame.

Enter Sarah Ockwell-Smith, a popular parenting expert who believes there's a better way. Citing the latest research in child development, psychology, and neuroscience, Gentle Discipline debunks common myths about punishments, rewards, the "naughty chair", and more and presents practical, connection-based techniques that really work - and that bring parents and kids closer together instead of driving them apart. Topics include:

  • Setting - and enforcing - boundaries and limits with compassion and respect
  • Focusing on connection and positivity instead of negative consequences
  • Working with teachers and other caregivers
  • Breaking the cycle of shaming and blaming

Filled with ideas to try today, Gentle Discipline helps parents of toddlers as well as school-age kids embrace a new, more enlightened way to help kids listen, learn, and grow.

Struggled to finish

I could no longer listen to her belief that children are not capable of anything. After all of her babbling of how wrong every one is, I still don't know if I can expect my child to clean her room when she is 5 or 15???
Give some real life examples that actually help instead of only pointing out what victims children are. Waste of time!
