"This new book educates parents with real life scenarios, showing simply and accessibly how to put positive parenting into action in daily life. The user-friendly format takes daily scenarios that stump even seasoned parents, tells us what's going on in the child to cause the behavior, and recommends specific parenting interventions to get the child back on track. Divided into sections like Nighttime, Potty Learning, Hitting and Whining, it addresses all the usual challenges of life with young children." - Dr. Laura Markham, author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids"Positive Parenting in Action is the book I wish I had had when my oldest was a baby." - Dulce Chale, dulcefamily.blogspot.com."Positive Parenting in Action, a new ebook by Rebecca Eanes (owner and author of the
Positive Parents website, and the founder of the popular Facebook page,
Positive Parenting: Toddlers and Beyond) and Laura Ling, breaks it all down in a really lovely and encouraging way. Instead of just offering up vague advice about what NOT to do, it instead gives the reader clear and loving examples on respectful ways to handle everything from tantrums to aggressive or dangerous behavior to sibling rivalry to potty learning." - Jennifer McGrail, jennifermcgrail.com
"Positive Parenting in Action: The How-To Guide for Putting Positive Parenting Principles into Action in Early Childhood is brilliant

From the Back Cover
Parenthood is a beautiful journey. We don't have to become adversaries with our children; doing so is very unnatural to our humanity. We are all wired for connection, for closeness, and for love. Positive parenting frees us to move from the traditional parenting roles which create friction and rebellion and allows us instead to move into a more natural role which creates cooperation and peace. The inevitable conflicts that arise in a relationship no longer define the relationship, but serve as stepping stones to greater understanding and connection.
