Publisher's Summary

Caring for young children is one of the most challenging tasks an adult will ever face. No matter how much you love your child, there will be moments filled with frustration, anger, and even desperation. There will also be questions: Why does my four-year-old deliberately lie to me? Why is everything a struggle with my three-year-old? Should I ever spank my preschooler when she is disobedient? Over the years, millions of parents have come to trust the Positive Discipline series and its common-sense approach to child-rearing.  

This revised and updated fourth edition includes a new chapter on the importance of play and outdoor experiences on child development, along with new information on school readiness, childhood brain growth, and social/emotional learning. You'll also find practical solutions for how to:  

  • Teach appropriate social skills at an early age  
  • Avoid the power struggles that often come with mastering sleeping, eating, and potty training  
  • See misbehavior as an opportunity to teach nonpunitive discipline - not punishment

Good concepts, with a political spin

Similar information and methods described as many other Adlerian principal parenting based books. However, this author uses her position of power, luring the unwary parent into hearing multiple lectures about political ideologies. A parenting book is not the place to push your hysterical politics on others.

Better than Positive discipline first 3y

If you have a young child I suggest to read this one instead of Positive discipline the first 3 years. I found more concentrated advice here and less talk than in the other one. Better than the original Positive Discipline when it comes to young children.
