Good best practices for "active" kids.,
This review is from: Ask Supernanny: What Every Parent Wants to Know (Paperback)
This book was not exactly what I was looking for...disciplining principles for toddlers. But it does give helpful advice for older kids that are energetic, troublesome or rowdy.

Aren't kids suppose to be energetic and rowdy? What do you want them to be? Still and complacent?

I don't think that's what she meant. Energetic is a good thing, but not if the child is bouncing around the dinner table for example, or refusing to stay in bed at night. There are going to be certain times when being rowdy and even 'energetic' is not appropriate. In the classroom at school being one of them. Not that they will be parenting their child while they are at school, I'm just using school to illustrate that it is perfectly acceptable and even appropriate to ask a child not to be energetic and rowdy at certain times.
