Nearly all parents acknowledge that while raising children can
be the best and most rewarding job of your life, their discipline is often
the most complicated, challenging and frustrating aspect of parenthood. But
how do you promote good behavior? How can you be firm without shouting and
having your child (or you), ending up in tears? And, does discipline really
have to be unpleasant to be effective? In The No-Cry Discipline Solution published by McGraw-Hill in April 2007, world renowned parenting author and mother of
four, Elizabeth Pantley, shows how discipline can be approached in a
positive, even fun way, and how to tailor key discipline techniques to your
child - without the whining, tantrums and tears.
Elizabeth Pantley's book "The No-Cry Discipline Solution"--
Gentle Ways to Encourage Good Behavior without Whining, Tantrums & Tears
The book is written for parents of children aged two to eight. Pantley writes from a perspective
of knowing that discipline is not about a 'one size fits all' set of rigid
guidelines, nor is it about punishment, or tears. In this inspiring,
thoughtful and loving book, the top parenting expert will show you that
discipline is about teaching our children the rights and wrongs, and about
helping you to develop your own effective formula of discipline techniques
based on the individual temperment and needs of your child.
"Discipline means to teach. Parental discipline is about helping our
children create a foundation of strong values, morals and guidelines that
they can use for a lifetime of self-discipline. We teach our children
through our words, actions and example - every day," said Pantley.
Tested by families worldwide, including working mothers, single mothers, stay-at-home mothers, and children of varying age and temperament, The No-Cry
Discipline Solution will show you how to live everyday life with your
children in a controlled, yet loving and happy way.
The book offers thought-provoking advice on our role as parents, as well as ways
to help you better understand your child, and practical, achievable' tips
you can use every day to make life easier.
Divided into four parts, The No-Cry Discipline Solution begins by looking at
essential parenting attitudes to build a strong foundation, banishes the
discipline myths and looks at discipline and emotional control.
Pantley also examines everyday discipline challenges, identifies how to
solve the real problem and demonstrates key No-Cry Discipline parenting
skills and tools to stop the tantrums and tears.
The final parts of the book examine the importance of staying calm and
avoiding anger for a peaceful home, how to reduce anger-producing situations
and tips to staying calm in your relationship with your kids.
