From the Author
I'm so happy that you are interested in my new book, "Creative Correction". My desire is to help moms and dads find practical help and fresh hope for the arduous, yet rewarding, task of raising healthy, happy children.
I have three children, ages 8,9 & 10, including a son diagnosed with ADHD. It was out of sheer desperation that I came up with many of the discipline ideas in this book. Traditional child-rearing methods are a good place to start but I found, as I'm sure you have as well, that my three children just aren't cookie cutter kids. They each required, and deserved, discipline that took into account their own inherent strengths and weaknesses.
My friends have urged me for years to write down some of my ideas, stories and insights for disciplining my children. I can only hope the ideas in "Creative Correction" will help you as much as they have helped me to enjoy the process of parenting.
