A breakfast bowl gets thrown across the kitchen, splattering milk and cereal all over the wall. One of your kids threatens a younger sibling. You get a call from the principal's office for the third time this month. What do you do?
Often, parenting is treated like some form of manipulation or behavioural coercion that must be kept secret from children. No-Drama Discipline, instead, is based on recent discoveries about the brain that give us deep insights into the children we care for, what they need, and how to discipline them in ways that foster optimal development.
It offers a 'relational' approach that builds on children's innate desire to please their parents and get along well with others. Following the same successful formula that made The Whole-Brain Child a bestseller, No-Drama Discipline presents clear messages in a practical and inviting format to communicate its core concepts and practices.
You can discipline your children in a way that's high on relationship-building, high on respect, and low on drama and conflict. As a result, your life as a parent will be easier, and your parenting will become more effective. And more importantly, you'll create connections in your children's brains to build emotional and social skills that will serve them now and throughout their entire life — all while strengthening your relationship with them.

Advance praise for "No-Drama Discipline" "Wow! This book grabbed me from the very first page and did not let go. Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson explain extremely well why punishment is a dead-end strategy. Then they describe what to do instead. By making the latest breakthroughs in brain science accessible to any parent, they show why empathy and connection are the royal road to cooperation, discipline, and family harmony."--Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., author of "The Opposite of Worry"" " "Using simple and clear explanations, practical advice, and cartoons that make the how-to guidance come alive, this book is a rich resource for families trying to navigate meltdowns and misunderstandings. It explains how neurobiology drives children's infuriating and puzzling behavior and will help parents make their way through the trenches of a typical day with grace, mutual respect, and a good helping of delight."--Wendy Mogel, Ph.D., author of "The Blessing of a Skinned Knee" "What a relief! Siegel and Bryson take the difficulty out of discipline, for parents or anyone who has to help kids behave. "No-Drama Discipline" offers a research-based, commonsense approach that any grown-up will be happy to use, and any kid will benefit from."--Daniel Goleman, author of "Emotional Intelligence" "Frustrated parents often ask me why the disciplinary techniques they are using with their children aren't working, or are even making things worse. I have not always known what to say, because I was not always sure I understood what was going wrong. Now I know. "No-Drama Discipline "unlocks the secrets of discipline: what works and what doesn't, and why--and what to do when you are pulling your hair out. Simply put, Dan Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson's insights and techniques will make you a better parent. I know I will be using the concepts from this extraordinarily helpful book for years to come."--Michael Thompson, Ph.D., co-author of "Raising Cain"e if you
