The key to discipline is not punishment but mutual respect. All parents think they're doing their best - but sometimes even the best of intentions can go awry. Dr. Jane Nelsen, an experienced psychologist, educator, and mother, believes that children misbehave when they feel thwarted in their need to belong and in their need for love and attention. An authoritarian approach, using phrases like "Because I said so", will only lead to rebellious behavior. Instead, parents need certain guidelines, basic principles that bring them and their children closer. They need Positive Discipline.
Dr. Nelsen explains that parent who show compassion and understanding will encourage self-respect, self-discipline, cooperation, good behavior, and problem-solving skills in their children. In Positive Discipline she shows all of us, parents and teachers alinke, exactly how her practical program works - answering step-by-step, such important questions as: *What works better than punishment to teach children positive, good behavior. * What mistakes do most parents make "in the name of love?" * How can parents turn their mistakes into assets? * How can praise be dangerous? * What are the dangers of trying to be "Super Mom"? * How can teachers avoid discipline problems in the classroom?
