Set boundaries and eliminate power struggles without conflict!

"I won't go!" "I don't care!" "You can't make me!"

Every parent hears these words at one time or another, but if you have a strong-willed child, the arguments can seem never-ending. Fortunately, there's hope. The Everything Parent's Guide to the Strong-Willed Child, 2nd Edition can help you put a stop to the endless cycle of battles with your child and rebuild a relationship based on love and respect rather than conflict.

This essential guide shows you how to trade in exhausting and ineffective punishment for techniques that can help you:

  • Identify the triggers of combative behaviors
  • Understand strong-willed and spirited motivations
  • Give your child tools to develop self-control
  • Learn how your reaction can lessen or intensify strong-willed behaviors
  • Communicate more effectively with your child
  • Strengthen the family bond and create a safe environment
Featuring a positive approach to discipline and including new ways to compromise and communicate with children, this all-in-one guide has everything you need to raise capable, happy, and agreeable kids!
