Banyen's Description: 

This lady has a powerful and empowering message for parents that fills auditoriums across
North America by word of mouth alone. People leave her talks feeling that, yes, they can be successful parents, they can be better teachers. Now, her book has been revised and updated, and it’s filled with solid, practical advice and techniques that respect both the parent and the child. Covered are such diverse topics as potty training, mealtime, bedtime, chores, fighting, and buffering teenagers from sexual promiscuity, drug abuse and suicide.

Readers will learn as much about themselves from Kids Are Worth It!  as they will about understanding or disciplining their children. They will learn to view their family with honesty, humour and optimism—no lie!

Her sharp wit and road-tested tips and information really make us sit up, take notice, and change. Her radical program for teaching inner discipline to children and teens encourages decision making, taking responsibility for actions, and learning from mistakes.

“If you already know some perfect parents, don’t give them this book. The rest of us mere mortals, whether parents, grandparents, teachers, or employers, could all benefit from the good advice contained in its pages. As a teacher specializing in children with behavioral problems, and the mother of three teenagers, Coloroso draws on 20 years of practical experience—and it shows.” —Quill & Quire

Among Barbara Coloroso’s other books are Parenting through Crisis and The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander.

 

 

 

 

 

Publisher’s Description: 

Featuring a new Introduction by bestselling author Barbara Coloroso, this parenting classic is set to teach a new generation of parents the importance of treating kids with dignity and respect. Rejecting the "quick fix" solutions of punishment and reward, Barbara uses everyday family situations—from sibling rivalry to teenage rebellion—to demonstrate sound strategies for giving children the inner discipline and self-confidence that will help them become responsible, resourceful, resilient, and compassionate adults.
