Parenting With Patience
Turn Frustration Into Connection With 3 Easy StepsBook - 2014
"This is a quick book to read when you are calm, with tools to use when you are not." says Judy Arnall, who has also authored the international bestseller, Discipline Without Distress: 135 Tools for Raising Caring Responsible Children without Time-out, Spanking, Punishment or Bribery. As a parent of five children (three adults and two teens), Arnall knows what she is talking about. She gave up all punishments when her oldest child was ten, having learned that the key to controlling frustration is to calm down and then move into problem-solving with the children. That way, she didn't punish out of anger, with later regrets. It is easier to solve normal parenting challenges after a few calming minutes for both parent and child, to gain a reasonable, collaborative perspective. Arnall is a Certified Canadian Family Life Educator, a Distinguished Toastmaster and a professional interactive keynote speaker. She has taught thousands of parents respectful, non-punitive research-based parenting tools that have brought them closer to their children, and they will work for your family, too. Bonus! Includes a handy section of calm-down tools to cut out and put on your fridge. Families can try a new one each week.
