Common Sense Parenting of Toddlers and Preschoolers, 2nd Edition
Set up your child and yourself for success and learn how discipline can be more about teaching than punishment, and more positive than negative for parents and children. Time- and research-tested Common Sense Parenting® skills have been adapted to meet the needs of parents and caregivers of young children ages 2-5. In this second edition, parents are given enhanced parenting skills with updated parent steps and clearer explanations for how and why to use these steps with children:
- Set reasonable expectations based on your child’s age, development, and abilities.
- Give your child the nurturing, love, and praise he or she needs to thrive.
- Use a parent’s version of “show and tell” to both prevent problems and correct misbehavior.
- Create plans for staying calm – for you and your child.
Parents will benefit from Boys Town’s decades of experience in working with kids to help moms, dads and other caregivers enhance their child-rearing skills and develop a calm, skill-focused approach to discipline. 280 pgs.
