It's Never Too Soon to Discipline

A Low-Stress Program That Shows Parents How to Teach Good Behavior that will Last a Lifetime

Dr. Ruth Peters

Golden Guides from St. Martin's Press

As a respected child psychologist and mom with more than twenty years' experience, Dr. Ruth Peters knows how quickly children-even those younger than two-can gain the upper hand in the parent-child relationship. Even in the earliest interactions with their children, parents can inadvertently encourage bad patterns of behavior and set the stage for future problems.

Dr. Peters outlines a behavior management system with clear, consistent, and fair rules that are connected to solid consequences and meaningful rewards. The book features:
* A smiley-face chart to help kids know what is expected of them
* Tips for using the system to handle socially inappropriate behavior (such as aggression, bossiness, and tantrums) and developmental issues (such as sleep problems and toilet training)
* A chapter on attention deficit disorder
* Specific advice for single parents and stepfamilies.

This parent-friendly, practical guide is the first step toward bringing order to every home.
