This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Based on their New York Times bestselling book No-Drama Discipline, internationally acclaimed neuropsychiatrist Daniel J. Siegel, MD, and brain-based parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson, PhD, have created a guide to manage and reduce drama in your interactions with your kids, and even decrease the amount of time you spend having to discipline. The goal is simple: discipline less on autopilot by developing a set of principles and strategies based on your own family dynamics. These stories, reflections, and exercises will help you think more deeply about the way you communicate with your kids, and provide opportunities for peaceful and nurturing conflict resolution. Some of the skills you'll learn: -Develop clear and consistent strategies for responding to misbehavior. -Move from tantrum to tranquility by connecting and calming. -Apply the three "Brain C's" and understand how neuroscience impacts your disciplinary decisions. -Practice tips to remain firm and consistent in your discipline, while communicating with warmth, love, respect, and compassion. -Teach your child life lessons on how to relate to others, how to handle difficult situations, and how to control emotions and impulses. -Engage with the interactive format, journaling to integrate ideas into your parenting approach.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 07, 2014 – In their latest parenting book, UCLA professor of psychiatry Siegel and psychotherapist Bryson (coauthors of The Whole-Brain Child) explore ways of disciplining kids with consideration for their developmental stage. According to the authors, discipline can serve as a teaching tool rather than as a punishment (this, they point out, hearkens back the word's original meaning). Parents who are prone to yelling or being reactive around their kids will be relieved to find that there are alternatives to threats, tears, and raised voices. Siegel and Bryson suggest that understanding a child's brain, capabilities, and point of view is crucial to dealing with misbehavior. They explain that it's important to connect first and then redirect the child, emphasizing that a parent's long-term goal to help children build better behavioral and relationship skills for the long-term is more effective than short-term consequences or punishments. Citing research that shows how the brain changes with experiences, they guide readers to help build and nourish their child's "upstairs" brain (responsible for sound decision making, empathy, and morality). With lucid, engaging prose accompanied by cartoon illustrations, Siegel and Bryson help parents teach and communicate more effectively. Illus. throughout.
