Discipline That Works, When Consequences & Time-Outs Don’t
Instead of being drawn into power struggles, yelling and giving meaningless consequences, Kirk will show you 10 ways to discipline with dignity so kids listen to, respect and trust you.
- Stop the whining, complaining and tantrums.
- Get kids to listen when they are loud in the car or interrupt on the phone.
- Teach kids to control their own behavior (self-discipline) so you don’t have to “make them” behave.
- What to do when kids lie, steal, cheat, disobey, won’t go to sleep and more.
