This parent education booklet shows how to communicate with a misbehaving child without playing a destructive role such as know-it-all or critical judge. Like all “Family Power” booklets, it is pleasant to read and well illustrated. It shows how to deliver wise child discipline that involves correction without damaging the child’s sense of self-worth. Topics include setting the stage for effective confronting with courtesy and empathy, giving constructive feedback at routine structured times, teaching decision-making skills to the child, preventing boredom-based misbehavior, and related techniques.
