Make a Difference During the Most Important Years of Your Child's Life
The months leading up to the birth of a child are filed with joy, dreams, plans—and a few worries. As a caring parent, you want to start your child out in life on the proper foundation. But where do you go for the answers to such questions as: How do I communicate with an infant who doesn't understand words? How can I effectively teach boundaries to my toddler? Should I ever spank my child?

These books offer a commonsense approach to child-rearing that so often is lacking in today's world. In Positive Discipline: The First Three Years, you'll learn how to use kind but firm support to raise a child who is both capable and confident. You'll find practical solutions and solid advice on how to:

•Encourage independence and exploration while providing appropriate boundaries
•Use non-punitive methods to instill valuable social skills and positive behavior inside and outside the home
•Recognize when your child is ready to master the challenges of sleeping, eating, and potty training, and how to avoid the power struggles that often come with those lessons
•Identify your child's temperament
•Understand what the latest research in brain development tells us about raising healthy children
•And much, much more!

Containing real-life examples of challenges other parents and caregivers have faced, Positive Discipline: The First Three Years is the one book that no parent should be without.

  • Not very realistic!!

    This book was overly utilitarian for me!!! And not very useable. The advice given would wear even the most devoted parent out!! I'm all for finding a way to discipline children in a positive way and to try to be an "understanding" parent, but there are times, especially with safety issues, your toddler needs to listen with out redirection or five minutes of trying to say no in a "nice way". I would suggest the book "How To Say No To Your Toddler- 9 Months through 3 Years" (if this is the age you are looking for).
