9780060014315: Kids Are Worth It! : Giving Your Child The Gift Of Inner Discipline

The parenting classic, now revised with new chapters, checklists, and information about today's most pressing issues regarding our children

This bestselling guide rejects "quick-fix" solutions and focuses on helping kids develop their own self-discipline by owning up to their mistakes, thinking through solutions, and correcting their misdeeds while leaving their dignity intact. Barbara Coloroso shows these principles in action through dozens of examples -- from sibling rivalry to teenage rebellion; from common misbehaviors to substance abuse and antisocial behavior. She also explains how to parent strong-willed children, effective alternatives to time-outs, bribes, and threats, and how to help kids resolve disputes and serious injustices such as bullying.

Filled with practical suggestions for handling the ordinary and extraordinary tribulations of growing up, kids are worth it! helps you help your children grow into responsible, resilient, resourceful adults -- not because you tell them to, but because they want to.

About the Author:

Barbara Coloroso is the author of the international bestseller Kids Are Worth It! and Parenting Through Crisis and is an acclaimed speaker on parenting, teaching, conflict, resolution, and grieving. Featured in Time, the New York Times, and on many radio and television shows, she lives with her husband in Littleton, Colorado.

From AudioFile:

Barbara Coloroso's philosophy of parenting supports the idea that using a combination of compassion and respect when disciplining a child will teach limits without damaging the child's or the parent's self-esteem. Throughout the six tapes, Coloroso tackles some of the most difficult topics, from how to teach a toddler the meaning of "no," to handling a troublesome teen. Coloroso's voice and presentation are comforting and easy to listen to. She manages to deliver eight hours of advice without "preaching" her philosophy, making her message palatable and successful.
