Positive Discipline for Preschoolers

This is the first book that has made a difference in addressing problems with my child. All the other books have nice theories, but they never work in practice. I like the theory behind this book and was actually able to start using it right away. I was abused as a child and found myself lashing out at my child despite all my efforts to control it. I think that this book will keep me from making the same mistakes my father made.

Highly Recommended

These books were recommended by some of the teachers at our children's school. We were glad for the recommendation after being overwhelmed by the sea of child raising books available. Both the positive Discipline and the Positive Discipline for Preschoolers books are easy to read and provide a wealth of ideas and exaples for raising our children with kindness and firmness. It has provided us for topics of discussion and give us the confidence we needed to be more consistent.

Positive Discipline for under 3

I recommend this book to all my moms in my baby sign language classes. I use many of the tips, ideas and child development inserts in my class. I have had about 4 moms buy the book as well and LOVE it. I would highly recommend all of Jane Nelson's books. I am currently reading Positive Discipline for preschoolers... I am sure I will love it as well. So far, awesome!

Brilliant. The only child guidance model I know of that deals with the root of the issue and does so in a way that builds self-esteem while teaching emotional, social, and cognitive intelligence. Best information I have come across in 17 years in the field of Education.

At the time I got this book I was an pre-school teacher in the 12mos to 18 mos and a floater. I loved this book. It helped me identify with the little ones to realize that they don't understand as much as it seems they should, because they are so smart in many ways. It really helped me connect with them more and know that for every change in me, there was a loving change in them. Thank you for such a wonderful book and series.
