If you're having trouble with one of the most difficult challenges in raising your kids - discipline - you'll be happy to learn that the bestselling author of Brainstorm, Mr. Daniel J. Siegel, is back with a fundamental work on the subject. There is a strong link between the way you react to your child's misbehavior and his/her development on the neurological level. And, this book is a step-by-step guide, a road map for handling strong emotions, tears and other drama without turning it into a painful or frustrating experience both for you and your little one.
The first thing a parent has to understand is the true meaning of the word "discipline" - it doesn't have anything to do with scolding or yelling! It's all about channeling emotions, redirecting them, reaching out to your kid and using the opportunity that a tantrum provides for helping him/her grow. If you master this "technique", you'll break the cycle of bad behavior and forced punishment, as you'll turn a potentially disastrous situation into a win-win thing.
No-Drama Discipline is a wonderful book, a textbook and a manual for all the parents out there who don't really know how to find common ground with their kids. It's got tons of tips and tricks and strategies that allow you to pick just the right approach for your situation and use the guidelines to change the relationship with your child for the better. Plus, you'll find a lot of interesting facts on how a baby's brain develops in the early years and what kind of discipline would be most effective at different ages.
If you want to learn how to connect with your little boy/girl and treat every situation with love and care, even if the baby is having a major meltdown, this book is exactly what you've been looking for. No-Drama Discipline allows struggling parents to educate their kids and set clear limits while still giving them the space they need and allowing them to develop on their own.
