This innovative book offers clear-cut instruction for a disciplined, but considerate way to raise children, and introduces new communication methods that change the manner in which parents speak with and listen to their children. Dr. Ginotts inventive approach to parenting has influenced a generation of experts in the field, and now the techniques can work for you, as well. In this revised edition, Dr. Alice Ginott, clinical psychologist and wife of the late Haim Ginott, and family relationship specialist Dr. H. Wallace Goddard bring this top-selling book into the current day, while continuing with the books positive message. It is based on the premise that parenting is a skill that can be learned. This invaluable resource will show you how to discipline without threats, bribes, sarcasm, and punishment, criticize without demeaning, praise without judging, express anger without hurting, acknowledge rather than argue with children's feelings, perceptions, and opinions, and finally, respond so that children will learn to trust and develop self-confidence.
