Based on the latest research on brain development and extensive clinical experience with parents, Dr. Laura Markham?s approach is as simple as it is effective.

This remarkable guide will help parents better understand their own emotions?and get them in check?so they can parent with healthy limits, empathy, and clear communication to raise a self-disciplined child. Step-by-step examples give solutions and kid-tested phrasing for parents of toddlers right through the elementary years. If you're tired of power struggles, tantrums, and searching for the right “consequence,” look no further. You?re about to discover the practical tools you need to transform your parenting in a positive, proven way.
