9780071435758: Four Weeks to a Better-Behaved Child : Breakthrough Discipline Techniques that Work -- for Children Age 2 to 10

A smart, easy-to-implement, and unique approach to positive disciplining

Drawing on her highly successful methods developed in her private practice, Dr. Cristine Chandler lays out clear, step-by-step instructions to help parents foster good behavior in their children based on the positive premise: that children behave well when they understand clearly what is expected of them.

Most discipline problems occur when parents are inconsistent about what they expect. Four Weeks to a Better-Behaved Child shows parents how to implement the "4Cs" of discipline in their daily practice: use clear, consistent, contingent consequences. Moreover, in this concise, straightforward book, Dr. Chandler challenges several commonly used approaches to discipline and provides alternatives. She shows parents:

  • Why punishment is often the least effective way to discipline children
  • Why anger never works
  • Why "time-out" works only sometimes--and what to do instead
  • How to use consequences to encourage--and get--good behavior

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Four Weeks to a Better-Behaved Child

"An invaluable resource for parents in their attempts to find the most effective ways of disciplining their children."
--Robert Brooks, Ph.D., faculty, Harvard Medical School, and author of Raising Resilient Children

"Cristine Chandler has developed an easy-to-read, step-by-step approach that will make you pause before trying time-out and other time-honored but ineffective techniques of discipline."
--Myrna Shure, Ph.D., author of Raising a Thinking Child and Thinking Parent, Thinking Child

"An informative and easy-to-read guide for parents. The four Cs to discipline offer a clear strategy for raising well-behaved and resilient children."
--Nicholas Long, Ph.D., Professor of Pediatrics, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and coauthor of Parenting a Strong-Willed Child

Shouting, talking back, hitting, and slamming doors are not unusual behaviors for small children, but they don't have to be a way of life either. Four Weeks to a Better-Behaved Child is based on the positive premise that children behave well when they understand clearly what is expected of them and are held accountable. Here you'll discover:

  • How to encourage your child to turn desirable behaviors into regular habits
  • How to discourage your child from repeating unwanted behaviors
  • When and why certain discipline techniques work (or fail to work)
  • The Cool Down technique, and why it's more effective than Time Out
  • The four Cs of discipline: clear, consistent, contingent, consequences

About the Author:

Cristine Chandler, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist with more than 25 years of experience. Her private practice focuses on families and children, and about half of her clients come to her to address discipline issues. She lives in Philadelphia.
