STRESS-FREE DISCIPLINE: Simple Strategies for Handling Common Behavior Problems
Sara Au, Peter L. Stavinoha
Prepares parents for any challenge: the pre-schooler who throws a fit . . . the second-grader who refuses homework . . . the budding tween who dishes out insults. The book helps determine the root cause, explaining what drives the behaviour, why it's usually normal, how to prevent escalations, and how to instill self-control.
Once parents grasp the underlying motivation they can select the strategy that fits their child's age, temperament, and issue—including role modelling, setting limits, positive reinforcement, negative consequences, disengagement—and deploy it calmly and with confidence. Examples and exercises throughout help readers personalize the authors' advice to their unique situation.
