"I won't go!" "I don't care!" "You can't make me!"

Every parent hears these words at one time or another, but if you have a strong-willed child, the arguments can seem never-ending. Fortunately, there's hope. This guide can help you put a stop to the endless cycle of battles with your child and rebuild a relationship based on love and respect--rather than conflict.

This essential guide shows you how to trade in exhausting and ineffective punishment for techniques that can help you:

  • Identify the triggers of combative behaviors
  • Understand strong-willed and spirited motivations
  • Give your child tools to develop self-control
  • Learn how your reaction can lessen--or intensify--strong-willed behaviors
  • Communicate more effectively with your child
  • Strengthen the family bond and create a safe environment

Featuring a positive approach to discipline and including new ways to compromise and communicate with children, this all-in-one guide has everything you need to raise capable, happy, and agreeable kids!
