I pre-ordered this book, No-Drama Discipline: The Whole-Brain Way to Calm the Chaos and Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind and it arrived a few days ago. I haven’t pre-ordered many books, but I’m a big fan of the authors’ earlier book, The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind and highly recommend it. I even wrote a series of posts on it, one for each of six chapters, which I invite you to read.
Thanks to waking up at 4:00 this morning, I had time to crack the cover and take a look. The introduction, which is all I covered this morning, lays out the basics of the book and I’m pretty certain I’m going to love it. I’m excited to review the principles of the earlier book and learn new strategies for connecting with and correcting my children.
Effective discipline means that we’re not only stopping a bad behavior or promoting a good one, but also teaching skills and nurturing the connections in our children’s brains that will help them make better decisions and handle themselves well in the future. pg.xix
I need to run, but as I read I’ll be sure to share with you. If you would like to read my posts from The Whole-Brain Child, you can follow the links below.
