Positive Discipline

Now Completely Revised and Updated
  • By Jane Nelsen
Product Description
For twenty-five 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

If you want to enrich your relationship with your children, this is the book for you.”
