This extraordinary guidebook offers a satisfying new approach to raising confident, healthy, whole human beings, from toddler to teen. Groundbreaking in both its scope and methodology, ParentShift challenges some of our most popular disciplinary tools - including punishments, threats, bribery, and rewards - all of which, science has shown, sabotage so many of the long-term goals we have for our kids. Child development experts Linda and Ty Hatfield, along with award-winning journalist and author Wendy Thomas Russell, dismantle the pervasive myths that have given rise to these tactics and introduce a method designed to solve virtually any household challenge while honoring children’s emotional needs, preserving the parent-child relationship and strengthening each child’s self-esteem.
