No Bad Kids: Toddler Discipline Without Shame - Softcover
Janet Lansbury is unique among parenting experts. As a RIE teacher and student of pioneering child specialist Magda Gerber, her advice is not based solely on formal studies and the research of others, but also on her twenty years of hands-on experience guiding hundreds of parents and their toddlers. “No Bad Kids” is a collection of Janet's most popular and widely read articles pertaining to common toddler behaviors and how respectful parenting practices can be applied to benefit both parents and children. It covers such common topics as punishment, cooperation, boundaries, testing, tantrums, hitting, and more. “No Bad Kids” provides a practical, indispensable tool for parents who are anticipating or experiencing those critical years when toddlers are developmentally obliged to test the limits of our patience and love. Armed with knowledge and a clearer sense of the world through our children’s eyes, this period of uncertainty can afford a myriad of opportunities to forge unbreakable bonds of trust and respect.

"An effective, respectful approach to discipline requires a new lens, a lens that differs from many of the most common approaches to discipline. No Bad Kids offers that lens, providing practical ways to respond to the challenges of toddlerhood while nurturing a respectful relationship with your child. This book empowers parents to calmly address behaviors while honoring kids' feelings and experiences, thus giving them discipline experiences that help their developing brains thrive." - Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, co-author of The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline
"Powerful, inspirational, and supportive. Janet Lansbury has expanded and built upon what Magda Gerber originally taught and modeled, while remaining true to the original philosophy. This is an indispensable guide." - Lisa Sunbury, RegardingBaby.org
"Whenever I have moments of doubt or confusion -- surrounding tantrums, moving, new schools, etc.-- I often turn to Janet Lansbury's website. I've mentioned it a few times because her thoughtful advice always rings true. She clearly respects children and reminds you that they're whole people in need of gentle love and compassion -- even when they're driving you bats:) Her books about parenting and discipline reflect this wonderful approach." - Joanna Goddard, A CUP OF JO
