Have you ever opened your mouth to
discipline your child, and your parents' nastiest words tumble out? These days, most parenting books focus on the
child. This book supports parents
in dealing more positively with
themselves as well as their
toddler-to-school-age children, offering
specific tools to stop policing and
pleading with kids and start being the
parents we want to be. Based on
Dr. Bailey's more than 25 years of work
with children, this book explains that
how we discipline ourselves is
ultimately how we discipline our
children. Her "Seven Powers for Self-Control" dramatically increase our ability to keep our cool with our children.
They correspond to "Seven Basic Discipline Skills" we can use with our children in conflict situations. As children internalize these skills, they naturally learn "Seven Values for Living," which include integrity, respect, compassion, and responsibility.
