Summary, etc.:
"Discipline is an essential part of raising happy and successful kids, but as more and more parents are discovering, conventional approaches often don't work and can even lead to more frustration, resentment, power struggles, and shame. In this inspiring and practical guide, popular parenting expert Sarah Ockwell-Smith debunks common myths about punishments, rewards, the 'naughty step, ' and more, and presents practical, connection-based techniques that really work -- and that bring parents and kids closer together instead of driving them apart."--Back cover.
