Review

Sarah's advice has given me the confidence to know there are alternative, gentler methods to things like the naughty step, and I'll be using this book as my bible for the next 16 years! And recommending it to all my friends (Charlie O’Brien, presenter, blogger, vlogger and mum to Noah)

What I value most about Sarah Ockwell-Smith's latest book is that it honours the struggles of both children and parents. She helps us see how understanding both sets of needs yields resolution and connection, which are not words we usually associate with discipline! Readers are treated not only to fascinating new discoveries about how children's brains and behaviour relate but also to the "ah-ha" moments that parents most wish for during times of conflict with their children (Dr Suzanne Zeedyk, Developmental psychology, Honorary Fellow, University of Dundee)

In Gentle Discipline, Sarah Ockwell-Smith challenges us as parents to pause, take a step back, and understand why children behave the way they do, so that we can make respectful and effective parenting choices... Congratulations, Sarah, this is a comprehensive, pragmatic, and common-sense approach to redefining what it means to discipline our children. Children all over the world will be thanking you! (Tracy Gillett, writer, mother and founder of Raised Good)

Any parent who wants to guide their children with more respect rather than govern them with fear will benefit from reading The Gentle Discipline Book. If you want reduce power struggles and punishments and replace them with more connection and understanding, this is a great read (Jessica Joelle Alexander, co-author of The Danish Way of Parenting)

The Gentle Discipline Book is a thorough guide to raising confident, capable children. Sarah Ockwell-Smith delivers valuable information and balances it nicely with practical and clear advice for implementing gentle discipline. This is a book that will remain by your bedside for reference for years to come (Rebecca Eanes, author of Positive Parenting: An Essential Guide)

A trustworthy combination of what-to-expect information and gentle-parenting solutions to the most common challenges faced by parents with young children (The Green Parent)
