From the Back Cover
From the bestselling authors of The Baby Book and The Birth Book comes The Discipline Book, the definitive guide to raising happy, well-adjusted, well-behaved children. Seasoned parents of eight, Bill and Martha Sears draw on personal experience and their professional knowledge as childcare experts to provide an authoritative approach to a broad range of disciplinary issues and practices. With a focus on preventing behavior problems as well as managing them when they arise, the Searses offer clear, practical advice on everything parents need to know about disciplining young children. Believing that discipline starts at birth, the Searses discuss baby discipline, disciplining the toddler, mother-father roles in modern parenting, saying no, self-esteem as the foundation of good behavior, helping a child to express feelings, the constructive use of anger, good nutrition for good behavior, and sleep discipline. On handling problem behavior, the Searses cover sibling rivalry, spanking and alternatives to spanking, breaking annoying habits, and eliminating bothersome behaviors like whining and talking back. The Searses strongly advocate teaching children values like apologizing and sharing, and explain how to deal with such issues as lying, stealing, and cheating. In addition, the Searses address building healthy sexuality and discipline in special situations such as after divorce and in the single-parent household. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One review of this book that said the advice in it seemed obvious. I think that is just because it is sensible. You may think of some of it yourself, but it is unlikely you will have thought of it all. We have three children under five, and this book has changed many aspects of our child-rearing and made our house quieter. We are less stressed. We have other books on the subject, but this is the best.

A lot of stuff in this book I liked. I do however think Sears is relatively mainstream, compared to the books I usually read. Read morePublished on 24 May 2007 by D. Boskma
I'm a big fan of the baby book, and I have to say I was really disappointed when I read this one. It's like it's written for people who can't think for themselves. Read morePublished on 15 April 1999
