Does your child's behavior confuse you? Do you find yourself wondering if there is a better way to respond to your screaming toddler or teenager? It is easy to be the kind of parent you want to be when your children are safely tucked into bed at night. But how do you become that parent when they are getting into everything and driving you crazy? How to Be A Great Parent offers practical strategies and techniques for coping with a wide variety of parenting issues. Dr. Nancy S. Buck will help you deal with issues such as eating, biting, lying, chores, swearing, homework, sexuality, and more. Stories of real-life families plus parenting tips, quizzes, and Q&As show you how to apply these new techniques right away. You'll learn to stop asking why: Why does my child act that way? Why doesn't he listen to me? Why does she keep asking me permission when I've already told her no? And you'll discover the "magical question" you should be asking instead. You'll also find out to to: Make conscious parenting decisions instead of automatically doing what your parents did; decide how much freedom is enough for your child; harnass your child's innate desire for fun; cope with bedtime (and naptime); handle squabbling siblings; talk with your teenager; parent together after a divorce. Once you understand your child's behavior, you will be able to respond in a kinder, more effective way. This will facillitate a stronger parent/child bond.
