No-Drama Discipline: THE WHOLE-BRAIN WAY TO CALM THE CHAOS AND NURTURE YOUR CHILD’S DEVELOPING MIND by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.
A cereal bowl gets thrown across the kitchen, splattering milk and Cheerios all over the wall.
The dog runs in from the backyard and has inexplicably been painted blue.
One of your kids threatens a younger sibling.
You get a call from the principal’s office for the third time this month. What do you do?
Before you answer, we want to ask you to completely forget about everything you know about discipline. Forget what you think the word means, and forget what you’ve heard about how parents should respond when kids do something they’re not supposed to. Because we’re always parenting our children, it takes real effort to look at our discipline strategies objectively. Good intentions can be replaced by less-than-effective habits quickly, and that can leave us operating blindly, disciplining in ways that might not bring out our best—or the best in our children.
Ask yourself a question: Are you open to at least thinking about a different approach to discipline? One that helps you achieve your immediate goals of getting your kids to do the right thing in the moment, as well as your longer-range goals oi helping them become good people who are happy, successful, kind, responsible, and even self-disciplined? If so, this book is for you.
