Summary, etc.:
"Jane Nelsen, coauthor of the popular Positive Discipline series, along with Positive Discipline Educators Joy Marchese and Kristina Bill, put forth a new volume for parents looking to make their overburdened lives a little easier. With the increasing pressure to excel at parenting, work, and personal relationships, it's easy to feel stressed and dissatisfied. This targeted Positive Discipline guide gives parents the tools to parent effectively without sacrificing their well-being or giving up on their life goals. Instead of creating unachievable expectations, parents will learn how to play to their strengths at work and at home. Attitude is key - if you feel confident in your parenting abilities and at your job, your children are more likely to adopt an attitude of self-reliance and cooperation. Using wisdom based on the Positive Discipline philosophy, busy parents will be able to avoid pampering and keep permissive and punitive parenting at bay, fostering a happy, successful home life. With tried and true communication approaches at their fingertips to aid in work-life integration, moms (and dads!) won't have to feel guilty about leaving their child with a sitter during the day, or leaving work early to go to a soccer game. Parents will also learn how to balance out their "wheel of life" and adopt coping strategies when life feels a bit too overwhelming"-- Provided by publisher.
