Description

Based on the latest research on brain development and extensive clinical experience with parents, Dr. Laura Markham's approach is as simple as it is effective. Her message: fostering emotional connection with your child creates real and lasting change. When you have that vital connection, you don't need to threaten, nag, plead, bribe-or even punish. This remarkable guide will help parents better understand their own emotions-and get them in check-so they can parent with healthy limits, empathy, and clear communication to raise a self-disciplined child. Step-by-step examples give solutions and kid-tested phrasing for parents of toddlers right through the elementary years. If you're tired of power struggles, tantrums, and searching for the right "consequence," look no further. You're about to discover the practical tools you need to transform your parenting in a positive, proven way.

Professional reviews

"A veteran child psychologist offers three broad strategies to parents: firstÑkeep your own emotions managed, secondÑfoster a solid emotional connection with your children, and thirdÑuse coaching instead of control to help your children function better. While narrator Xe Sands uses a pleasant, if somewhat formal, voice, she has no trouble handling the phrasing challenges presented by some of the longer wordy sentences. Her performance, however, never loosens up enough to make this audio sound warm or inviting or to make herself sound authentically engaged with her audience. But the authorÕs message of quiet empowerment comes through nonetheless because she writes with appealing clarity and offers action steps that everyone will understand.
