Item Description...
Here's a great guidebook for parents of children ages 6 to 16 facing a myriad of family challenges: a teen who's defiant; siblings who constantly bicker; a child having trouble in school, or parents and kids who occupy the same house but don?t communicate or have fun together anymore. Common Sense Parenting provides parents with a menu of proven techniques that will aid them in building good family relationships, preventing and correcting misbehavior, using consequences to improve behavior, teaching self-control, and staying calm. The book shows parents how to approach discipline as positive teaching rather than punishment of their children. Encouraging children by recognizing their good behavior and teaching before problems occur are as important as correcting children's negative behavior. Parents also learn how to help children solve problems, reach goals by using charts and contracts, and practice new social skills. As each new parenting technique is introduced, the authors explai

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Common Sense Parenting is an enthusiastically recommended fundamental guide.  May 12, 2007
Written by expert authors Ray Burke, Ph.D., Ron Herron, & Bridget A. Barnes, who have many combined years of professional experience creating and delivering Girls and Boys Town's parent training programs in the United States and other countries worldwide, Common Sense Parenting: Using Your Head as Well as your Heart to Raise School-Aged Children is a practical guide for parents and caretakers. Chapters offer sensible advice and simple techniques for encouraging good behavior, correcting problem behavior, teaching social skills, helping children succeed in school, handling peer pressure, and much more. Now in a newly revised third edition with more answers for commonly asked parental questions, as well as additional insights into modern quandaries such as computer misuse and Internet dangers, Common Sense Parenting is an enthusiastically recommended fundamental guide.
It works, that says it all!  Jan 10, 2007
The book title says it all! Do it and create a win-win for parents and kids! Fail proof!
An Excellent Parenting Resource  Sep 23, 1998
This excellent book offers parents solutions to common problems, as well as tips for positive guidance and effective praise. The program seems to be designed to encourage parents to expand on their current parenting techniques, rather than abandoning current practices in favor of a "new method." It boosts parents' esteem as well as giving tips on how to boost children's self-esteem. It sits on my shelf next to "1-2-3 Magic!"
The following review was done by the National Parenting Center upon awarding the Common Sense Parenting Book as well as the Common Sense Parenting Audiotape with its coveted Seal of Approval.

"When it comes to reading advice about parenting, what we've discovered is that parents like to be spoken to in a direct, common sense manner. No need to use flowery or highbrowed language, just give me some tips and I'll take it from there. Like the name implies, this book and the like-titled audiotape delivers the goods. Common sense tips and good ideas presented in an easy to read and listen to format. Parents mentioned that they really liked the written exercises which serve to help reinforce what you've learned. Here is a logical sensible approach to parenting, featuring good examples that our parents give a thumbs ups."
