  • Discover the Power of Positive Time-Out
    Time-out is one of the most popular disciplinary techniques used in homes and schools today. But instead of being the positive, motivating, experience it should be for children, it is often punitive, counterproductive, and damaging to their gentle psyches.
    In this book, bestselling parenting author Jane Nelsen shows you how to make time-out a positive learning experience for children. Inside, you'll discover how positive time-out can teach children the art of self-discipline and instill such invaluable qualities as self-confidence and problem-solving skills. You'll also learn how to:
    ·Make time-out an encouraging experience
    ·Develop an attitude and action plan to avoid power struggles with children
    ·Empower children by involving them in the behavior changing process
    ·Understand the mistaken goals of negative behavior
