No-Drama Discipline – The Whole-Brain Way to Calm the Chaos and Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind
Highlighting the fascinating link between a childâ€™s neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior, No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tearsâ€”without causing a scene.
Defining the true meaning of the â€œdâ€ word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem solving becomes a win/win situation. Inside this sanity-saving guide youâ€™ll discover
â€¢ strategies that help parents identify their own discipline philosophyâ€”and master the best methods to communicate the lessons they are trying to impart
â€¢ facts on child brain developmentâ€”and what kind of discipline is most appropriate and constructive at all ages and stages
â€¢ the way to calmly and lovingly connect with a childâ€”no matter how extreme the behaviorâ€”while still setting clear and consistent limits
â€¢ tips for navigating your child through a tantrum to achieve insight, empathy, and repair
â€¢ twenty discipline mistakes even the best parents makeâ€”and how to stay focused on the principles of whole-brain parenting and discipline techniques
Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authorsâ€™ suggestions to life, No-Drama Discipline shows you how to work with your childâ€™s developing mind, peacefully resolve conflicts, and inspire happiness and strengthen resilience in everyone in the family.
