Parents struggle to figure out how to get their young children to do what they ask. It’s often difficult to understand how their preschoolers think and what rules they should have. Parents know they can’t just let their children do what they want when they want. They’re looking for better ways to get cooperation and trying to come up with reasonable and effective consequences. How strict or how lenient should they be? And preschoolers are naturally determined to say no to our rules and to challenge us.
Annye Rothenberg, Ph.D., a child/parent psychologist experienced with the everyday concerns of typical children and parents, has written this second unique two-section book – with a story for preschoolers and a guide for parents (and grandparents). These books have already received rave reviews from parents and professionals.
The children’s story is narrated by a preschooler who doesn’t see why there have to be so many rules. As she begins to understand why we have to have rules, she comes up with her own delightful rule.
The parents’ manual teaches how preschoolers think and how to build family values and decide on rules. It helps you make it easier for your children to do what’s asked and teaches new and effective consequences. This manual clears up much of the conflicting advice that parents hear.
This 40-page book is beautifully illustrated with warmth, humor, and eye-catching color by the talented artist David T. Wenzel. The book begins with a “what’s in this book for children and parents” page, and ends with a two-page summary of the “take-aways” in this comprehensive yet concise parents’ guide.
