The doctors' first award winning book
Learning and using the 7 practical skills in this book will help you tackle today’s unprecedented parenting challenges to raise emotionally strong, behaviorally smart children with less stress. We show you how to build life-long relationships, use the most effective discipline methods, balance your support and control, and monitor and manage outside factors that can influence children more than parents. This guide includes how to say things to get kids to listen to you and heed your advice, what to expect of their behavior by age, and how to decide which limits you need to set and how to set and enforce them for best results. Parents and caretakers of infants to adolescents will find easy-to-read coverage of common concerns and questions, from sibling relations to co-parenting.
