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
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 -
10 Steps to More Confident Parenting. All the best!

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.
