Publisher's summary

Do you ever find yourself asking...

  • How can you get your children to do their homework without meltdowns, threats, or bribes?
  • How can you have a drama-free morning where the kids actually get out the door in time for school?
  • How can you better manage your kids' screen time without making them want to hide what they're doing from you?

Family therapist Susan Stiffelman is here to help. While most parenting programs are designed to coerce kids to change, Parenting Without Power Struggles does something innovative, showing you how to help your children awaken their natural instincts to cooperate, rather than employing threats or bribes, which inevitably fuels their resistance. By staying calm and being the confident "captain of the ship" your child needs, you will learn how to parent from a place of strong, durable connection, and you'll be better able to help your kids navigate the challenging moments of growing up.

Drawing upon her successful practice and packed with real-life stories, Parenting Without Power Struggles is an extraordinary guidebook for transforming the day-to-day lives of busy parents - and the children they love.
