For twenty-five years, Positive Discipline has been the gold standard reference for grown-ups working with children. Now Jane Nelsen, distinguished psychologist, educator, and mother of seven, has written a revised and expanded edition. The key to positive discipline is not punishment, she tells us, but mutual respect. Nelsen coaches parents and teachers to be both firm and kind, so that any child from a three-year-old toddler to a rebellious teenager can learn creative cooperation and self-discipline with no loss of dignity. Inside youll discover how to:
  • bridge communication gaps
  • defuse power struggles
  • avoid the dangers of praise
  • enforce your message of love
  • build on strengths, not weaknesses
  • hold children accountable with their self-respect intact
  • teach children not what to think but how to think
  • win cooperation at home and at school
  • meet the special challenge of teen misbehavior

  I love this book. We have twin girls who are 6 and a 4 year old boy. I can't tell you how helpful it is to understand their behavior more... as well as our own. Thank you for helping with our handful. My only request: Please share some information on handling twins/multiples or children close in age. Thanks!!

Wonderful Discipline Strategies!
  I've just started my reading & have steadily applied the concepts! LOVE THE RESULTS! I have read Jane's other positive discipline books (birth-3 and preschool years) this just adds practical advice & application for the rest of the process! The kids are happier & do better...& so does MAMA!!! :)

My favorite book!
  Every time I read this book I gain something new. My copy is dog earred and well worn. I highly suggest this book. It is a great starting place to understanding positive discipline philosophy and tools.

Positive Discipline
  This book was recommended by a gal that encourages foster parenting. It has very good ideas, but like it says--try one thing @ a time to implement. I know lots of people who use this approachable are successful @ parenting happy children.

Great book!
  I love the ideas in Positive Discipline. It presents a good way of thinking (getting inside the child's mind. Working on solutions, etc.) and a solid set of principals. I'm on my second read through it and I'm hoping to pick up some things I may have missed the first time.

Positive Discipline
  When I worked as an elementary school counselor, this book was one I recommended most to parents. Having followed the positive discipline model myself with my own now grown children, I knew the model works. And i saw it work for the parents to whom I recommended it--what else is there to say? It is needed now more than ever as I see more and more parents struggle to be firm and consistent with their children. With this model, parents can learn to be firm and loving at the same time.

Thank You
  I appreciate the skills this book is helping me to maintain in dealing with a spirited child. I always said, it is not what your saying, it is how you say it. This doesn't only apply to children!!!
