Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting brings the joy back into family life and helps parents to raise confident, responsible adults.

Based on her forty-plus years of experience, behavioral specialist No l Janis-Norton outlines a clear, step-by-step plan that will help any parent raise a child who is cooperative and considerate, confident and self-reliant.

You'll begin to see results almost immediately:

* Kids start cooperating the first time you ask
* Mornings, bedtimes, mealtimes and homework all become easier
* Even very resistant kids start saying" yes" instead of "no"

Full of examples and stories from real parents, this book offers the complete toolkit for achieving peaceful, productive parenting. Parents who have read How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk or Positive Parenting will appreciate No l's battle-tested methods and easy-to-follow strategies.
