Hi,
Are you an effective and confident parent, who can face any type of parenting problems with ease and aplomb? A family is just like any other institution. It is a cozy little union of parents, children and other near and dear ones. Every member of a family is a different individual with his or her own mind, expressions and opinions. Therefore, it is very common to see differences in expressions among different members. This is so true among the younger members of the family also.

Some children are very easy to manage, while others are truly challenging. The ones who are challenging may be that way for a number of reasons - differing temperament, extreme anger and behavioral problems are some of the most common ones. Whatever the causes are, they pose some unique problems for the parents.

Handling challenging children need better parenting methods and superior managing techniques. Successful parenting comes along with successful management. Dr. Lynne Kenney is a noted pediatric psychologist and educator and she is an expert in the basic principles of successful parenting. Creator of the most successful BabyFirst TV video series, she is also the author of the international bestselling audio - Parenting Essentials: 10 Steps to More Confident Parenting. All the best!

Thought for today:
"It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action and discipline that enabled us to follow through." - Zig Ziglar

Best Regards,
Andrew Loh

1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12
By Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D

If your child has begun to rule the roost a bit more than you'd like, this book provides a system to get your family operating smoothly. Especially sensible is Phelan's theory that children should not be argued with endlessly to convince them to do what you want them to do. He also wisely points out the best way to get your child to repeat unwanted behavior is to have a highly emotional reaction to it. The plan is simple, and though it's not quite magic, it may feel like it is.

Previously available as a booklet in conjunction with a workshop and as a video, clinical psychologist Phelan's simple, effective child-management program has now been issued as a trade paperback. The gist of the plan is to enable parents to discipline children, ages 2 to 12, by instituting a system of counting and time-outs, delivered straightforwardly and unemotionally.
