Positive Discipline Book Will Save Your Voice

If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I’m a big fan of Amy McCready. A positive discipline advocate, she studied the Adlerian psychology behind this incredibly empowering parenting technique, then found a way to share it with the world through Positive Parenting Solutions.

I found Amy and was so impressed with her instruction and all the valuable information I received from her course I’ve offered free sessions here on Heligirl.

However, I’m really excited to announce there is another way to gleam the incredible information Amy shares. Amy just published a new book.

Titled “If I have to Tell You One More Time”¦: The Revolutionary Program That Gets Your Kids to Listen Without Nagging, Reminding, or Yelling,” the book offers a great deal of the valuable information Amy shares in her multimedia Positive Parenting Solutions course.

Amy starts off her book pointing out why the old techniques such as time outs and counting 1-2-3 don’t work (in fact, they can make things worse for you and your child down the road), then dives into basic Adlerian theory, helping us understand how when our children misbehave there is something deeper going on we can address to solve the entire problem.

Then she introduces her toolbox, skills she recommends parents use and practice to help them work with their children.

What I really love about this book is it offers readers clear insight about child behavior in a way that is easy to understand, and even recognize already in our daily interactions with our own kids. And then it offers real tips and tools parents can put to work immediately.

Amy offers examples and scenarios as well as tips on when to use certain tools and when to steer clear. In some cases, she even breaks down how to use a tool based on the age and even birth order of the child.

While I’m a super huge fan of the course because I love the video pieces, questionnaires and printouts I can keep handy, this book is an excellent introduction that will leave readers finding themselves yelling less and building more respect with their kids.

My tip today is to check this book out. It’s on sale right now on Amazon for $15.97, or if you have a Kindle, $11.99.

While I did receive a copy of this book to review, I was not paid to write a review nor was I asked to only write a positive review. The opinions and thoughts expressed here are my own, and are honest. The links to purchase the books do offer a percentage to Heligirl, so thanks for clicking to check it out.

I’m looking forward to reading this. I’ve been doing the countdown thing and hoping I’m not creating bad association with numbers and math for my kids.

I just downloaded the book on my Nook app on my phone. FYI: although Kindle and iPad lead the e-book pack, NookColor is quickly drawing in women and girls. http://nyti.ms/luJ2HE
