The Power of Positive Parenting
By , Submitted on 2017-02-15

This book teaches parenting principles and practices that are backed up by research. I love his main theme that whatever behavior receives the most attention is repeated. So parents should ignore minor misbehavior and try to look for and reward positive behavior with a specific compliment. It has best parenting practices for all age groups. For instance he teaches that teenagers need time to casually talk to their parents and need physical affection as much as when they were young. My daughter finds this book really helpful in raising an active two year old boy. I wish I had read this book 20 years ago.
