Publisher's Summary

Do you wish there was a way to raise well-behaved children without punishment? Are you afraid the only alternative is being overly indulgent? With Positive Discipline, an encouragement model based on both kindness and firmness, you don't have to choose between these two extremes. Using these 49 Positive Discipline tools honed and perfected after years of real-world research and feedback, you'll be able to work with your children instead of against them.
The goal isn't perfection but providing you with the techniques you need to help your children develop the life and social skills you hope for them, such as respect for self and others, problem-solving ability, and self-regulation. The tenets of Positive Discipline consistently foster mutual respect so that any child - from a three-year-old toddler to a rebellious teenager - can learn creative cooperation and self-discipline without losing his or her dignity.
In this new parenting audio guidebook, you'll find day-to-day exercises for parents to improve their parenting skills along with success stories from parents worldwide who have benefited from the Positive Discipline philosophy. With training tools and personal examples from the authors, you will learn:

The hidden belief behind a child's misbehavior - and how to respond accordingly
The best way to focus on solutions instead of dwelling on the negative
How to encourage your child without pampering or praising
How to teach your child to make mistakes and follow through on agreements
How to foster creative thinking

Read by Kimberly Farr, Kathleen McInerney, and Fred Sanders

Critic Reviews

"Nelsen's tone is that of a patient teacher, gentle but never coddling, and Tamborski and Ainge's more conversational styles bring an 'in the trenches' feel without falling into the self-deprecation so common in peer-focused parenting books...a welcome guide in tough moments." ( Publishers Weekly)
"A delightful and fun book to read with practical and effective parenting tools. Each story used resonates with our daily and challenging lives with our children. This is a must read book for parents who want to raise independent, empowered and capable kids." (Tony and Lisseth Orozco, executive directors, Disciplina Positiva Center, Anaheim, CA)
"With Positive Disciple Parenting Tools, the authors have delivered a clear, research-based guide for training our children to motivate themselves, and ultimately manage their own behavior. What a gift to all of us striving to put down the sticks and carrots, and lead with loving guidance instead." (Hal Runkel, LMFT, best-selling author of ScreamFree Parenting )

Essential listening

Very well read and delivered. Easy to relate to examples and applicable tools to help you become the parent you want to be but are struggling to be. The best realisation I had was that every child seems to give their parents the same challenges the world over.

This will decor get repeated listening.
