"This book is a guide for parents who want to attain the perfect balance where they can actually have a personal life and still show love for their children. Parenting is naturally stressful, and this book is a top pick for parents who love their children but have their love stressing them out." Midwest Review of Books

Many of the sentences are so good I would like to hang them on the wall. Some ideas seem too easy, but they work.
--Lena Lilja Hallnissa, Leksand, Sweden

Your parenting book is exactly what every parent desperately needs because it does what other discipline experts have not done: It retains the authority responsible parents need while creating the respectful relationship parents want.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Marshall presents discipline as an on-going living experience without coercion, manipulation, "naughty chairs" time-out, charts, stickers, treats, and threats. Parenting is a relationship with kids--a teaching-learning-living relationship. For this reason, the book's subtitle: How to Raise Responsible Kids While Keeping a Life of Your Own is possible, truly unique among child rearing books, and so desirable among parental goals.

Parenting without Stress is indeed a landmark book. The author explains, through an abundance of practical ideas, examples, and anecdotes, a new and different direction from the traditional emphases on rearing obedient, adult-pleasing, conforming children to an innovative concept for raising children as independent, productive, self-disciplined, human beings able to take self-confident responsibility now and through the remainder of their lives. Kids are not learning to be members of society; they are members of society.

Bill Page, Author, At-Risk Students and Enjoying Parenthood

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Marvin Marshall's parenting book is easy to read, understand and implement. It truly does create a less stressful home environment for the parents and the children. The principles are logical and "brain friendly"; kids see that the world really is an orderly place that makes sense and that there is an inextricable link between choices and consequences. By utilizing these parenting strategies, children are taught that they have the power and the skills to control their own destiny. This is an excellent resource for parents.

Great read. I bought the audible edition so I listened to the book on the way to work. The book offers a lot of practical tips and examples to illustrate the concepts presented in it. I prefer it before rewards/punishment behavioral approaches.

I learned a lot from this book not just in parenting, but also in managing personal relations in general. We're children deep inside, many principals (e.g. positiveness and giving choices) can be used for adults too.

Great pairing to the Discipline without Stress, Punishments and Rewards. After trying so many things with a challenging, right-brained, strong child, I, thankfully, came upon the original book and, subsequently, bought this one as well. It is logical, practical and child-friendly. My child gets it. Checks herself and moves on to better choices and higher responsibility. I loved the quote in the book that for eons parents, teachers, schools and others always felt they had to DO something to a child to teach them discipline and responsibility. This process does something FOR them...it give them an intrinsic sense of responsibility. Knowing what is right and doing it. That is the ultimate.
