Why Children Misbehave And What To Do About It: An Illustrated Guide For Parents


This easy to read book is for parents who want to know how they can effectively correct their children's misbehavior and simultaneously help them learn the skills they need to develop self-control, positive self-esteem and respect for themselves and others.

The concisely written book has a visually appealing style that makes complicated ideas and methods easier to understand by using photos, graphics, bullet points, and many specific examples of parenting strategies using real life misbehaviors. Included are proven methods for dealing with a range of behavior problems commonly seen in toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary-age children: -Temper tantrums-Not sharing-Untruthfulness-Whining-Not asking for permission-Taking others' possessions-Bad language-Interrupting-Sassiness, arguing, sarcasm-Teasing, making fun of others, bragging-StealingThe best parenting methods are ones that continually send the messages of love and respect for oneself and others. Why Children Misbehave And What to Do About It describes methods of approaching discipline that are based on over forty years of research on child development. Discipline means teaching and learning. Effective discipline teaches children how to gain control over their behavior, to adapt to demands of life, and to appreciate the rights and needs of others. With the methods described in this book, you, the parent, will teach your child self-control, consideration for others and self-respect through your own actions. These methods take time to show results, but they make discipline more effective because they lead children to feel valued and to appreciate the benefits of doing the right thing. However, the results are more enduring and lead to more positive day-to-day relationships within the family as a whole.
