Format: Paperback
Discipline does not always mean punishment. By closely following the techniques given in this book for "time-outs", I've been able to eliminate several of my toddler's tantrum behaviors (like banging his head on things when he's mad) within one to two days, WITHOUT punishing him. This very special and QUICK AND EASY-TO-READ book teaches parents to teach our kids self-quieting skills that are crucial to their survival in life. I think if all kids were taught to calm themselves down, our society and our world would be a lot more peaceful!

I never even knew that children had "self quieting" skills until I read Dr. C's book. He explains how, if left alone for awhile, most children will quiet down all by themselves, even when they're upset. That's just one of the great tips I learned from this book. In a humorous way, Dr. C points out that, although it may be hard at first to let your child cry out her frustration, no adult in the working world can get by for very long by throwing tantrums. It's this common sense approach to pareting and discipline that makes this book so worthwhile. The book explains how to use discipline appropriate for the age of your child, and what to do if the first suggestion doesn't work. In the back of the book, he's included free hand-outs that you can use to refresh your memory. If you think about it, what Dr. C. is recommending isn't DISCIPLINE at all. He's telling us how to treat our children right the first time, so that we can enjoy having our children around and av! oid actually having to discipline them.

I am excited to see that Dr. Christophersen has provided us with a new edition of Beyond Discipline. The impact this book has had on my interactions with my children has been considerable. As a pscyhologist working with kids, I have always understood the importance of consistency and discipline. However, Beoyond Discpline assisted me in helping my children develop self-quieting skills through touching them regularly and providing them with time in. Most parents that I work with in my private practice are excited and quickly understand the purpose and goals of Dr. Christophersen's suggestions.
Too often as adults we try and communicate with our children in ways similar to the ways we communicate with other adults, by talking. However, Dr. Christophersen's suggestions on communicaton have enriched my relationships with my children. Parents often ask me how to get their children to talk to them. I provide them with many of Dr. Christophersen's suggestions.
This book is helpful in addressing issues across the life span of a child. I recommend it highly.

Dr. Edward C. helps us cope with the challenges of creating good people out of the little ones in our lives. This book should be required reading for parents and grandparents. I have sent it to several who all agree it is very valuable. Bless this dr. for his insight and ability to share it with us.
