It is easily tailoredto differences in age, temperament, and the needs of children with ADD/ADHD. Positive results usually are seen within a few days. Best of all: instead of nagging, parents can use Dr. Koenig's powerful esteem-building strategies to affirm their children's strengths.

The Smart Discipline system:

  • Gets kids to do what you ask, the first time you ask
  • Stops fighting, bickering, and disrespectful language
  • Ends hassles over homework, chores, messy rooms, and bedtime
  • Instills positive self-image and builds confidence. . . and much more!
