From a family therapist, parenting expert and respected advice columnist for AOL’s HuffPost Parents comes a unique approach to parenting that can help eliminate drama, meltdowns, and power struggles.Every parent knows the unrelenting fervor of a four-year-old’s tantrum, an eight-year-old’s refusal to do his homework, or a moody preteen’s insistence on talking back&and every parent has asked the simple question: how can I create more peace at home? While most parenting strategies are designed to coerce your kids to change, Parenting Without Power Struggles does something innovative, focusing on teaching parents how to come alongside their children to awaken their natural instincts to cooperate, rather than at them with threats or bribes which inevitably fuels their resistance. Family therapist Susan Stiffelman has shown thousands of parents how to be the cool, confident “Captain of the Ship” in their children’s lives. Drawing upon her successful practice and real-life stories, Susan shares proven strategies and crystal clear insights to motivate kids to cooperate and connect, making Parenting Without Power Struggles an extraordinary guidebook for transforming the day-to-day lives of busy parentsand the children they love.
