About the Author:

Robert Brooks, Ph.D., is a psychologist on the faculty at Harvard Medical School. He is an award-winning speaker, author, and educator.

Sam Goldstein, Ph.D., is a psychologist on the faculties of the University of Utah Medical School and George Mason University. Drs. Brooks and Goldstein have coauthored ten books, including Raising Resilient Children, The Power of Resilience, and Nurturing Resilience in Our Children.

From Publishers Weekly:

Brooks and Goldstein (Raising Resilient Children) note that a key component of resiliency is self-discipline. It's so essential, in fact, that the authors devote their new text entirely to fostering its development in children. They begin by pointing out that discipline is a teaching process. A disciplinarian, they state, is not a parent who punishes or intimidates, and the goal is not to produce compliant, obedient kids. Rather, the objective is to keep children safe, help them learn self-discipline and become responsible for their own actions and choices. The authors reveal that spanking and other authoritarian methods work against this process. As an alternative, they offer a number of approaches parents can take to instill self-discipline and help children appropriately control their own lives, such as offering choices, letting kids come up with solutions and giving positive feedback. The authors employ a series of detailed case studies to illustrate (regrettably, these are tediously heavy-handed and needlessly drawn out). Still, the book provides practical tools for creating healthier families and self-disciplined kids. Parents who are weary of nagging and threatening will no doubt welcome the authors' tried and true tactics. (Sept.)
