    I'm open to all schools of thought except physical punishment (obviously), but it needs to encompass littles-older teens. Thanks!

    how to talk so your children will listen - how to listen so your children will talk.
  3. We have been using 123 magic by Thomas W Phelan after Abby's behavior conselor recomended it.
    I has really helped us a lot. I have definitely learned to stay calm and not get myself worked up.

    Good Luck!

    Kids are Worth it by Barbara Coloroso.

    I find many other discipline method books to be tedious and rigid even in the PD format.

    I also like the How to Talk books and Siblings Without Rivalry by Faber and Maslich.

    I'm reading it now and I swear we have EVERY discipline book out there (AP style stuff)...and I LOVE THIS ONE the most!

    I really enjoyed the chapter about parental anger and how to control it when you child does something that angers you. I put it right to use and it's been three days that I've kept my cool...I feel really good about this book and plan on recommending to anyone who needs discipline ideas!

    A really good and eye-opening book is also Easy to Love, Difficult to Discipline. The title sounds cheesy to some, but the content is first-rate.

    I'm reading Adventures in Gentle Discipline.. it's really good! It also helps me solidify what I'm doing with my child (loving guidance).

    Best,

    Kids are Worth it by Barbara Coloroso is my favorite. Giving the Love that Heals by Harville Hendrix is not really a discipline book per se, but it's still good. I want to read 123 Magic. I'm hearing lots of good about that one.

    123 Magic didn't do it for me. I'm in the middle of Positive Discipline and loving it.
