"What a relief! Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson take the difficulty out of discipline, for parents or anyone who has to help kids behave. "No-Drama Discipline" offers a research-based, commonsense approach that any grown-up will be happy to use, and any kid will benefit from."--Daniel Goleman, author of "Emotional Intelligence"
"Frustrated parents often ask me why the disciplinary techniques they are using with their children aren't working, or are even making things worse. I have not always known what to say, because I was not always sure I understood what was going wrong. Now I know. "No-Drama Discipline "unlocks the secrets of discipline: what works and what doesn't, and why--and what to do when you are pulling your hair out. Simply put, Dan Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson's insights and techniques will make you a better parent. I know I will be using the concepts from this extraordinarily helpful book for years to come."--Michael Thompson, Ph.D., co-author of "Raising Cain"
"Wow! This book grabbed me from the very first page and did not let go. Siegel and Bryson explain extremely well why punishment is a dead-end strategy. Then they describe what to do instead. By making the latest breakthroughs in brain science accessible to any parent, they show why empathy and connection are the royal road to cooperation, discipline, and family harmony."--Lawrence J.
