“Get Your Kids to Listen without Bribes, Threats or Punishment””
People often ask me what books to read or where else to go for help, so I’ve collected my favorites here.
Hold on to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More than Peers, Gordon Neufeld and Gabor Mate
Positive Discipline, Jane Nelsen
The Explosive Child, Ross Greene
Parenting a Child Who Has Intense Emotions, Pat Harvey
And, one off topic recommendation just for fun …
It’s All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living A Richer Life with Less Stuff, Peter Walsh
If you struggle with clutter like I do, this book is a game changer. Unlike other “organizing” books, Peter Walsh acknowledges the emotional attachments we have to our things and how we can re-frame our thinking to let go of our stuff.
Positive Discipline is a program based on the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs and designed to teach young people to become responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their communities.
