NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * The pioneering experts behind The Whole-Brain Child and The Yes Brain tackle the ultimate parenting challenge: discipline.

"A lot of fascinating insights . . . an eye-opener worth reading."-- Parents

Highlighting the fascinating link between a child's neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior, No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears--without causing a scene.

Defining the true meaning of the "d" word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem solving becomes a win/win situation. Inside this sanity-saving guide you'll discover

* strategies that help parents identify their own discipline philosophy--and master the best methods to communicate the lessons they are trying to impart
* facts on child brain development--and what kind of discipline is most appropriate and constructive at all ages and stages
* the way to calmly and lovingly connect with a child--no matter how extreme the behavior--while still setting clear and consistent limits
* tips for navigating your child through a tantrum to achieve insight, empathy, and repair
* twenty discipline mistakes even the best parents make--and how to stay focused on the principles of whole-brain parenting and discipline techniques

Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authors' suggestions to life, No-Drama Discipline shows you how to work with your child's developing mind, peacefully resolve conflicts, and inspire happiness and strengthen resilience in everyone in the family.
