3 Steps to Parent-Child Harmony (pdf download)
In this book, I present a comprehensive approach to parenting from the perspective of empathy, dialogue, agreements, and accountability as a radical departure from the Old School perspective of rules, control, punishments, and more punishments that don't work.
Everything presented in the book is applicable to teachers and other adults who work with children.
Based on my forty-plus years of work with parents, children, and families as therapist, educator and/or coach, this volume breaks new ground in the area of strengthening families through enhanced relationship skills for parents.
As one of my colleagues told me, I'm "turning parenting on its head."
I'll guarantee you have not heard or read any parenting experts talk this way about parent...Give up using punishments? I say, Why not? If they don't work for you and your child, why not trying parenting smarter? I say substitute accountability for punishments. The accountability is based not on rules you have made, but on agreements your child has made.
I show you how to implement these incredibly effective techniques by using specific listening and talking skills in The Behavior Dialogue and in The Accountability Dialogue.
