I had a childhood during which I was punished and even sometimes slapped. At the end, it was not that bad. I ended up pretty well…
Nevertheless, I always promised myself that I will educate my kids differently. I think that a positive parenting without screaming but more with talking is better for every one.
Sometimes, it is not always easy to set the boundaries and to know how to do.
I am so glad to have read the “No-Drama discipline book” from Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne.
In this book, you will find:
– strategies that help parents identify their own discipline philosophy–and master the best methods to communicate the lessons they are trying to impart
– facts on child brain development–and what kind of discipline is most appropriate and constructive at all ages and stages
– the way to calmly and lovingly connect with a child–no matter how extreme the behavior–while still setting clear and consistent limits
– tips for navigating your child through a tantrum to achieve insight, empathy, and repair
– twenty discipline mistakes even the best parents make–and how to stay focused on the principles of whole-brain parenting and discipline techniques.
If you think that all this point are important to be learnt, No Drama discipline is for you!!!
Before to read this book you have to remember that there is no ‘perfect parent’ or ‘ideal’ approach to tackling the issues of disciplining a child.
Drs. Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson dispel this myth from the beginning and offer an insightful and highly educational approach to discipline and parenting that is simple, yet effective.
The authors tackle discipline from a non-punitive perspective seeking the “teachable moment” approach for both parent and child. With a better understanding of the child’s brain, the parent can fine-tune their end results to best align with what the child has going on and how the message reception plays an integral role in the final product, hopefully a cessation of the issue at hand.
Well-written with honest examples and keys to success, Siegel and Bryson offer up a wonderful guide to address discipline issues from an emotionally calm and drama-free approach, leaving time for the parent and child to tune into an episode or two of DAYS OF OUR LIVES and see how well adjusted they are, compared to some families.
Our children are the future and if we can get in better touch with their feelings and development (mentally, physically, and emotionally), we are well on the way to raising happier, healthier, and more well-adjusted children. Then we can see those life lessons flourish when grandchildren come along. That said, don’t spill your secrets too readily; you had to learn them the hard way too!
If you prefer to listen to the book, I recommend AUDIBLE, the first 30 days are free, which corresponds to one free audio book:)
