Being self-disciplined means more than simply being well behaved. It means maintaining control of emotions, working well with others, setting positive goals, and accomplishing tasks. It's what all parents hope to teach their children-without the usual nagging, fighting, or screaming. Believe it or not, you can raise a self-disciplined child, using the proven methods found in this groundbreaking new book. You'll learn how to:

  • Show your child how the choices she makes affect her future.
  • Teach your child to control his behavior and emotions.
  • Help your child set goals and complete tasks.
  • Instill in your child a sense of pride, self-confidence, and caring.

While researching their book Raising Resilient Children, Dr. Robert Brooks and Dr. Sam Goldstein found that a lack of self-control or self-discipline was at the root of many behavioral problems. Most parents and children think about discipline in terms of punishment--which explains all the home-front battles. This engaging and enlightening book shows you how to change old mindsets and use a positive approach and real communication to find new solutions that work for everyone. You'll hear dramatic true stories of parents just like you who have managed to reach their children after years of fighting. You'll discover what works and what doesn't, whatever your child's age.

Packed with specific examples, ingenious strategies, and insightful anecdotes, this book provides you with a complete set of guideposts for a happier life and healthier mindset for your child. Through positive feedback and encouragement, you can shift your child's focus from parental control to self-control-and form a bond of love, trust, compassion, and respect that will grow deeper and stronger as time goes by.
