Publisher's Summary

For 25 years, Positive Discipline has been the gold standard reference for grown-ups working with children. Now Jane Nelsen, distinguished psychologist, educator, and mother of seven, has written a revised and expanded edition.
The key to positive discipline is not punishment, she tells us, but mutual respect. Nelsen coaches parents and teachers to be both firm and kind, so that any child - from a three-year-old toddler to a rebellious teenager - can learn creative cooperation and self-discipline with no loss of dignity. Inside you'll discover how to:



Bridge communication gaps
Defuse power struggles
Avoid the dangers of praise
Enforce your message of love
Build on strengths, not weaknesses
Hold children accountable with their self-respect intact
Teach children not what to think but how to think
Win cooperation at home and at school
Meet the special challenge of teen misbehavior

Packed with updated examples that are clear and specific, Positive Discipline shows parents exactly how to focus on solutions while being kind and firm. If you want to enrich your relationship with your children, this is the book for you." (Sal Severe, author of How to Behave So Your Children Will, Too!)

A must for parents

Jane Nelsen teaches anyone that would be a child caregiver how to better discipline while lifting the child up rather then tearing them down.

Excellent book & examples

I love this booked. I’ve already shared it with five people. It’s got such simple yet helpful ideas & principles. I’ve already changed how I deal with misbehaviour in our home & im planning on introducing family meetings when our son is old enough. Thank you
