Based on the idea that children respond better to positive rather than negative reinforcement, the Children Are From Heaven program concentrates on rewarding, not punishing, children and fostering their innate desire to please their parents. Central to this approach are the five positive messages your children need to learn again and again:

-It's ok to be different
-It's ok to make mistakes
-It's ok to express negative emotions
-It's ok to want more
-It's ok to say no, but remember
Mom and Dad are the bosses.
