You may be like many parents who want to be more patient. Maybe you want to stop yelling, threatening and punishing. Yet, you can’t imagine how to inspire cooperation without those old standby methods. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that through punishment you might scare a child into following directions in the short run, but you don’t get long term behavior changes. Mountains of research has shown without doubt that children seek connection with their parents and those parents who focus that connection on positive behavior, win more cooperation. This “Positive Discipline, Peaceful Home” library will help you:

  • Build your parent-child relationship in ways that will effectively increase cooperation
  • Recognize specific steps to ignore negative behaviors and reinforce those behaviors that you want from your child
  • Apply an approach to discipline that will help your child learn self-control rather than fear authority

Routines are powerful tools. They bring you and your young child closer and reduce power struggles. Routines help little ones predict what comes next, trust that you will meet their needs, and feel more confident. Transitions between activities can be challenging and routines ease those difficulties and help children learn. Routines also decrease behavior corrections and increase cooperation in your child.

Parents who participate in “Routines that Work with Little Ones” Library will be able to:

  • Apply effective strategies to help your young child cooperate with daily activities like getting dressed or eating meals
  • Create routines that are enjoyable, include key child learning principles  
  • Recognize the role parents play in carrying out routines that work
  • Address ‘hot spots’ that frustrate parents, like transitions between activities, and get in the way of parents attending to their responsibilities.
