An updated and enriched edition of the most popular of the Brazelton Way titles, timeless wisdom for the behaviour problems of today
World renowned pediatricians T. Berry Brazelton and Joshua Sparrow see discipline as a parent's gift to a child. By following the doctors' unique approach, which emphasizes teaching over punishment, parents will find effective solutions for common behaviour problems. Not only will parents feel more confident and at ease but they will also experience the joy of raising children who learn to discipline themselves. The vital advice covers six stages of discipline, the power of consequences, ways to encourage moral development and empathy, dealing with misbehaviour (from biting and fighting to cheating, lying and using foul language), and special disciplinary challenges (including academic pressure, illness, and digital technology).
