Why do children misbehave repeatedly — even when they are punished? Does it seem that no matter what one does, children continue to behave in ways that drive parents crazy? It’s easy to be frustrated and discouraged as a parent.
Keep It Positive is a method of parenting based on research and proven results that will transform a home into a loving, peaceful, and respectful environment. With this book, readers will learn new skills to develop positive, healthy relationships with their children which will last a lifetime. Through concrete examples and real-life situations, parents will learn how to:
- Create an environment in which a child will want to behave.
- Minimize temper tantrums.
- Foster an internal sense of respect and responsibility in a child.
- Minimize sibling rivalry.
- Effectively reinforce positive behavior.
- Use consequences without punishment.
- Structure routines to encourage positive behavior.
- Communicate with and understand a child in a new way.
- Use Biblical principles to undergird all of the above.
“Thank you so much for caring about parenting our little ones. Our house is more peaceful. We are not ‘sweating the small stuff.’ Excellent, easy, practical advice. The fact that there were lots of examples made it simple to follow.”
- Mark, father of two daughters.
“I wish I had learned this method five years ago! We have had beautiful changes in our home.”
- Sandra, mother of three sons.
