Whether You’re Raising Toddlers or Teenagers—Some Behaviors Are Non-Negotiable

Once upon a time, parents were parents and children were children. Today, our fast paced lives and changes in the popular culture have children claiming more independence than they can handle. Parents are losing their authority, negotiating with their children about everything from what to wear to school to when to go to bed at night. All this negotiating is exhausting and it doesn’t teach children how to handle the intense pressure to grow up too quickly.

Lynne Reeves Griffin RN, MEd helps you reclaim your position of authority with a proactive approach to raising your children. By establishing clear boundaries for what is and isn’t acceptable behavior, you’ll win the tug-of-war with your children—and forge a stronger, more loving bond because of it.

  • Influence your children’s behavior—without controlling it
  • Predict and prevent challenging behavior
  • Let go of time-outs, groundings, spankings, and other punishments
  • Teach by example—show and tell your children how you expect them to behave

With true stories from more than twenty years of parent counseling, the author reveals the real struggles parents face in raising today’s children—and tells you how to step out of the negotiation generation and step back into control.
