Product Description

Review

“The Positive Discipline series has empowered me and my husband to be the kind of parents we want to be day-in and day-out in the face of any and all circumstances. What really struck a chord . . . is that the concepts are simply and clearly presented chapter by chapter in easy-to-read language regarding real-life everyday scenarios. Thank you very much for the contribution you have made to my family’s lives.”—Mary S. McMahon“Thank you so much; the material you provide is so valuable. I have seen such marvelous results with my son in the past few months. For me, one of my biggest priorities is to help him develop into who he is as a person, and not smother his identity or confidence. Your methods have been such a valuable tool in enabling me to accomplish this.” —Maureen Pramanik“When I first became a parent, about six and a half years ago, I fell upon your books and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I have given many of your books as gifts to my friends and family because they teach kids to think for themselves, be responsible, resilient, capable, considerate, etc. Your books have really helped me learn the skills I want to become a better parent.” —Teresa Bouchard

Format: Paperback
This book is a lot of psychological mumbo jumbo. It is paradoxically complicated and yet simplistic at the same time, in that it delves so deeply into a child's cognitive and emotional development that it leaves the reader with the impression that parents need a psychology degree to truly understand the depths of a child's psyche, and yet will offer ridiculously simple practical tips, such as warning your child that they have one more swing before it's time to go, or that they have to clean up the milk that they spilled, etc. What parent doesn't already do these things? The problem is when the child has had her "one last swing" and yet still refuses to go or refuses to clean up the spilt milk. Or when they won't stop hitting their sibling, even though you've told them to. THAT is when discipline comes in. Nelson presents a false dichotomous view of parenting approaches, that you either punish for everything or reason and communicate your way through everything. A good parent, in my opinion uses both approaches. Each one has their place and time. Certainly I communicate with my child, use humour to diffuse whining at times, try to teach her how to channel her rage into something more civil than a tantrum etc. and sometimes simply getting the child to fix/pick up/have a redo/whatever is sufficient rather than resorting directly to a punishment. But there are times when enough is enough, or when you have tried all of the above methods and they don't work or the behaviour is sufficiently bad that it needs to stop immediately and punishment is required to prevent further reoccurences. When a child is screaming at and hitting his mother in public, saying "Please stop that sweetie, it's not nice" will do squat. I have never seen or experienced that method to work.Read more ›

My expectations were to receive a guide into my kids behavior for their age and how they perceive the world around and this book is more of an Q&A on what to do in certain situations. One thing interesting from it is the translations between actions and emotions and how those apply to the kids. Again they are listed in a table in the book and a bit hard to use when you're at the door in the morning and your preschooler is fighting against the snow pants and can't really stop and check the appropriate response.

There's not a lot of earth shattering information in this book. I've owned it for a year now, and looked at it once.
