How often as parents do we promise ourselves that we won't "sweat the small stuff" when it comes to our kids? And how often does our concern--or our tight schedules--make us do exactly that?
In a non-judgemental voice that speaks to parents everywhere, the author shows how to avoid "no-win" discipline styles and instead set limits, develop a child's sense of self-discipline, and use anger positively to survive the hassles and headaches of everyday life. With a unique and effective combination of authority and accessibility, Maslin gives parents both the big picture on understanding their child and step-by-step solutions to those inevitable battles they will face.
