Common Sense Parenting of Toddlers and Preschoolers, 2nd Edition

Bridget A. Barnes, MS and Steven M York, MHD


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.
