GENTLE DISCIPLINE

Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview with parenting expert Sarah Ockwell-Smith, who discusses her new book Gentle Discipline: Using Emotional Connection – Not Punishment – to Raise Confident, Capable Kids”.

Parents today have to balance so much, often more than is possible for just one person, so it’s easy to slip into old patterns of shouting and punishing. Conventional approaches to discipline (such as praise & reward systems, punishment for bad behavior) often backfire, leading to more frustration, resentment, and power struggles at home and in the classroom – but why? The reality is that while these methods may appear to produce quick results, the long-term effects can leave parents with a far worse problem than they had initially.

In GENTLE DISCIPLINE: Using Emotional Connection – Not Punishment – to Raise Confident, Capable Kids, popular parenting expert Sarah Ockwell-Smith notes “the true key to better behavior is in working with, not against, your child…Gentle discipline is about conscious, mindful decisions.” In this pioneering approach, parents learn to break the cycle of repeating what they’ve always done, and find a more effective, positive, and individualized method that takes into account not just the child’s behavior, triggers, and development, but also the parent’s triggers and negative influences.

Citing the latest research in child development, psychology, and neuroscience, Ockwell-Smith presents connection-based techniques to tackle issues, such as:
– Why children misbehave and how they learn;
– The problems with popular discipline methods in education and childcare today;
– How to cope with common behavioral issues such as not listening or refusing to do something, sibling rivalry, lying and swearing, low self-esteem, and violent or destructive behaviors;
– Ways to cope with unwanted opinion and advice;
– And how to deal with your own anger triggers, guilt, and insecurity as a parent.

 

GENTLE DISCIPLINE provides an empowering framework that will enable parents to become an expert on their own child’s behavior and discipline so that they may respond in a way that is both effective and gentle.
