Winning the Discipline Debates covers a series of the most common (and most frustrating) discipline scenarios between parents and kids. The debates are interspersed with Dr. Ray's enlightening comments and observations. Learn, laugh, and let Dr. Ray coach you to stand strong and become a more confident parent. Some of the lessons covered in the book include: enforcing bedtime routines; setting boundaries for those who want to help discipline your kids; avoiding disagreements in front of the children; establishing consequences - and sticking to them; resolving sibling fights. From preschool to the late teen years, with Dr. Ray as your coach, everyone wins!
"This book has it all: humor, drama, authentic real-life scenarios of parent-kid conflicts, and, best of all, positive, creative solutions that really work. Dr. Ray Guarendi's legendarily keen understanding of the arcane mysteries of child and teen psychology is on full display here. My advice? In the words of that old TV commercial: Try it. You'll like it." (Patrick Madrid, author of Envoy for Christ: 25 Years as a Catholic Apologist and host of EWTN's daily radio program Right Here, Right Now)
