About this item

Completely updated to report the latest research in child development and learning, Positive Discipline for Preschoolers will teach you how to use methods to raise a child who is responsible, respectful, and resourceful.

Caring for young children is one of the most challenging tasks an adult will ever face. No matter how much you love your child, there will be moments filled with frustration, anger, and even desperation. There will also be questions: Why does my four-year-old deliberately lie to me? Why won’t my three-year-old listen to me? Should I ever spank my preschooler when she is disobedient? Over the years, millions of parents just like you have come to trust the Positive Discipline series and its commonsense approach to child-rearing.

This revised and updated third edition includes information from the latest research on neurobiology, diet and exercise, gender differences and behavior, the importance of early relationships and parenting, and new approaches to parenting in the age of mass media. In addition, this book offers new information on reducing anxiety and helping children feel safe in troubled times. You’ll also find practical solutions for how to:

- Avoid the power struggles that often come with mastering sleeping, eating, and potty training

- See misbehavior as an opportunity to teach nonpunitive discipline—not punishment

- Instill valuable social skills and positive behavior inside and outside the home by using methods that teach important life skills

- Employ family and class meetings to tackle behavorial challenges

- And much, much more!

An updated child-care manual designed for parents of preschool-age children tells how to prevent misbehavior through non-punitive discipline and how to reinforce useful social skills and positive behavior, while dealing with the challenges of young children as they learn and grow.
