Rather than discussing problems in a theoretical or psychoanalytical way, the author gives you a wide range of options for dealing with everyday situations. You will wince as you read her accounts of conversations between parents and children and recognise yourself in them. However, she then gives you a selection of coping strategies that are simple to understand but very effective.
This book has enhanced my time with my boys (2&5) immeasurably. I have been astounded by how well the techniques work and how quick it was to pick them up. Last weekend, a friend marvelled at how 'calm and serene' I was as I got a group of running, screaming 4-6 year-olds (only 1 of them mine!) to behave and do as they were told instead. She has now borrowed the book.
Many different skills are explained, teaching parents the difference between discipline and punishment. Listed to are the many disadvantages and counter productive negative effects of spanking.
There is good advice for nurturing sibling relationships, understanding and coping with anger, and how important it is for parents to look after themselves as well. The last part of the book is devoted to providing ideas for dealing with all the common discipline situations such as homework, bedtime, mornings, interrupting, meal times, tantrums etc..
Another book which would make a good companion to this one is "Setting Limits" by Robert J MacKenzie.
I have recently read Elizabeth Pantley's book on sleep, "The No-Cry Sleep Solution" which is also a wonderful book.
"If you are an accountant, and there is a deficit in the daily balance, you stay at night and find the reason. If you are a cook, and burn the cake, you'll make another one, but you do not have that chance on your children. You can not compansate your mistake about your children" says Elizabeth Pantley, while trying to emphasize the importance of the subject.
We love our children, but this love, by itself, does not teach us the right behaviours to our children. In Kid Cooperation, Elizabeth Pantley is sharing her experiences with the readers, as a professional expert on family issues and as the mother of three children. The book consists of 9 chapters some of which are: What are your parental methods?, Cooperation, Punishment and Discipline, How to improve self confidence of your child? and How to improve fraternal relations?
Every chapter is divided into subsections and each heading is explained together with lived examples. At the end of each chapter there is a summary table containing the headings of the chapter.
There are very original thoughts in the book. For example in the 'how to improve fraternal relations?' chapter a usual mistake is pointed out. She gives the example of a family who buys birthday presents to all three of their children at every birthday.Read more ›
