This Book Brought Peace Back to our Home,

This review is from: Discipline without Shouting or Spanking: Practical Solutions to the Most Common Preschool Behavior Problems (Paperback)
We all need to learn how to be better parents and this book clearly demonstrates how. Kids today, even the youngest ones, need discipline but often we don't know how to do it or are actually afraid of our children and what they might do to us if we take action against them. We can learn, however, that discipline doesn't have to mean putting yourself at risk or in any kind of danger. You simply have to be creative and use your noggin. There are things you can do to tell the kids what they should stop doing and it doesn't have to mean they are going to gang up on you or wait unitl you are alone to get back at you. That's the wrong way to think about it. Of course you have to be careful and watch your back, but there is no reason you can't be a family. Stop spanking NOW and never ever shriek. That can only escalate the fury. I learned from this book that you want to turn the voljme down, way down, and still remain in control but out of harm's way. For example, when you don't trust your children with responsibility they might resent it and devise clever ways to get back at you. Discipline, yes. But with your own security and safety in mind first. Make sure you are safe BEFORE you take any actions, however reasonable they may seem at first. Remeber, what seems "reasonable" to you may in fact not be acceptable to your issue and you will then place yourself, necessarily in danger. This isn't to imply that you should be in constant fear of your chilren, but every now and then, do take stock. Becuase it's not unheard of of what some kids can do today. But just the fact that you are buying this book (which you should) means you are involved and caring. That seems to mollify children to some extent. But not completely. That's why BE CAREFUL. Thanks. Children are our future. But we won't have a future if we upset them. Thanks again.
