Summary: Children can go through difficult phases - this is a natural part of growing up. Conflicts and arguments are nothing exceptional, but rather a part of everyday family life. The authors of this practical and imaginative book show how parents can create consistent and effective structures, methods and responses, so that children can learn for themselves how to practise self-control and cooperation in a secure environment where they both belong and have autonomy. Based on years of experience working with children, including those with special needs, the authors structure their methods around the low arousal approach. With many creative suggestions and real-life examples, this book has the potential to change family life for the better forever.

Best parenting book I have ever read - and I have read a lot of them over the years. It has helped us tremendously. Can't recommend enough.

Patron comment on

Book goes into why children act out and that for parents it is not who did what and why, the important thing is what they can do to prevent the situation arising again and if it stll does, what we can do in that situation, i.e. reviewing will lead to change in everyday structures and a plan to follow the next time a conflict situation arises that is similar to the one just reviewed.
