Discipline: Positive Guide for Parents

Discipline: Positive Guide for Parents

by Herbert (Author)


Discipline today has a poor reputation. In the minds of many it is associated with punishments and restraint. They cannot bring themselves up properly without help. They need guidance, cooperation and caring which are the basis of a positive approach to discipline. Parents need discipline too. Many feel a silent grief and shame, too embarrassed to admit to the difficulties they are having with their children or teenagers. In this book Martin Herbert describes a positive, practical approach to discipline which can help remove tension and unhappiness from the family. He shows how a firm but loving framework or rules helps children develop their own guidelines and controls. Though the ideas Professor Herbert outlines apply to all age groups, he singles out the concerns of parents of teenagers and gives particular attention to television and its influence.
