Review

“With lucid, engaging prose accompanied by cartoon illustrations, [Daniel J.] Siegel and [Tina Payne] Bryson help parents teach and communicate more effectively.”Publishers Weekly
 
“A lot of fascinating insights . . . an eye-opener worth reading.”Parents
 
“Insightful . . . The ideas presented in this latest book can actually be applied to all of our relationships, as it will help us in many circumstances to be able to calm down, have empathy for another person, and then communicate in a constructive way about our concerns and proposed solutions. What works to help children learn and behave better might also help our world’s leaders and large groups of people get along better, as many of us adults failed to develop these mindsight skills as we were growing up and we tend to sabotage our relationships with others as a result. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, or just a person who wishes to learn to get along better with others, you may find some valuable insights in No-Drama Discipline.”Examiner.com

“Wow! This book grabbed me from the very first page and did not let go. Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson explain extremely well why punishment is a dead-end strategy. Then they describe what to do instead. By making the latest breakthroughs in brain science accessible to any parent, they show why empathy and connection are the royal road to cooperation, discipline, and family harmony.”—Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., author of The Opposite of Worry
 
“Using simple and clear explanations, practical advice, and cartoons that make the how-to guidance come alive, this book is a rich resource for families trying to navigate meltdowns and misunderstandings. It explains how neurobiology drives children’s infuriating and puzzling behavior and will help parents make their way through the trenches of a typical day with grace, mutual respect, and a good helping of delight.”—Wendy Mogel, Ph.D., author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee
 
“What a relief! Siegel and Bryson take the difficulty out of discipline, for parents or anyone who has to help kids behave. No-Drama Discipline offers a research-based, commonsense approach that any grown-up will be happy to use, and any kid will benefit from.”—Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
 
“Frustrated parents often ask me why the disciplinary techniques they are using with their children aren’t working, or are even making things worse. I have not always known what to say, because I was not always sure I understood what was going wrong. Now I know. No-Drama Discipline unlocks the secrets of discipline: what works and what doesn’t, and why—and what to do when you are pulling your hair out. Simply put, Dan Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson’s insights and techniques will make you a better parent. I know I will be using the concepts from this extraordinarily helpful book for years to come.”—Michael Thompson, Ph.D., co-author of Raising Cain

So any parents out there whether you are new or old, have had one child or many must read this book. This book has chnaged my perspective on parenting and my relationship with my children. Dan talks about practical advice that will help you rebuild relationships with your children and decrease the drama that is in your household.

I know its crazy to think but if you were like me, this is for you. My daughter is not always the most pleasent person to get a long with. She seems to always hit the right buttons and I felt that she was doing it on purpose. Traditional punishments where not working and both my partner and I were at our whits end. The advice and ideas that are in this book really changed my thinking and my mind.

It will seem different to you and you may not agree at first but it has been a month and life has gotten better. My daughter is listening, she is talking and reasoning and she is gaining more control over her life. We still have our moments but I think that will happen in any world but they are a lot better.

If you are struggling and need some advice or even if you have a great household, this book is still a great read.

This is a reasonably good parenting book that emphasizes connecting with and teaching your child. It views discipline from its original meaning "to teach". The underlying idea is that children's brains are malleable, and we should look at disciplinary moments as opportunities to teach rather than simply to punish. To this end, they emphasize connecting with your child to calm them down, then to discuss what happened with the child to promote understanding and ultimately build the long-term neural capacity for good decision making and self-control. It's about promoting the thinking, controlling parts of the brain rather than the reactive, instinctive parts of the brain.

Does it work? Yes, generally, it's pretty good advice. The authors certainly maintain that there are times when one can't take the time to calm everyone down, or that a child will always be capable of calming down in the near future. They admit that parents aren't perfect, that this kind of discipline doesn't work for every situation, and they provide numerous personal and client examples of how it works and how it can fail.

However, it's not a perfect book. In their zeal to promote connective discipline, they overlook and/or put down simpler forms of punishment and reward. The opposite school of thought (as best promoted by those "super nanny" shows that were popular a few years ago) goes too far in the direction of relying almmost solely on strict punishments and rewards. But this book goes too far in its own zeal. There is a time and place for a simple "No means no", just as there is a time and place for a longer, deeper, disciplinary moment.

As a parenting author and psychologist working with parents for more than 3 decades, I am pretty familiar with what's "out there" for parents. I have to say, however, that Daniel Siegel's new book makes an outstanding contribution to the field. His approach is gentle, practical and doable and extremely emotionally intelligent. Anyone who follows the guidance offered within these pages will be well on the way to establishing a healthy relationship with his or her child. Siegel shows how everyday misbehavior can be redirected without fuss on the part of the parent or the child. His instructions for connecting preempt drama and negativity, replacing negative emotion with true education and love. He shows how common ways of mishandling misbehavior tend to worsen the youngster's behavior and attitude, and harm the parent-child relationship - but he does so in a respectful, even kind way, so that the parent never feels guilty, inadequate or "bad." In fact, he understands PARENTS just as well as he understands kids. The book teaches through pictures, making every point so clear that anyone - even one's spouse! - can easily grasp and apply it. I highly recommend this book! Sarah Chana Radcliffe, author, "Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice."

Very well done. Dr Siegel has exceptional experience and a well founded perspective on human development. He is very clear about the limited effectiveness of punishment and a clear understanding of the developmental stages of children.
