Additional Info

One hundred years of research and science has given rise to a verifiable truth: Many popular child-rearing methods — long viewed as harmless alternatives to spanking — can drive deep divisions in parent-child relationships and damage children’s self-esteem.

 These methods include punishments (such as threats, timeouts, grounding, revoking privileges, and docking allowances), as well as rewards (such as trinkets, star charts, and bribery.)

And, yet, for many parents, these methods seem to be the only thing keeping their households from dissolving into chaos. Take away their most useful parenting tools, and how can they expect their homes to function properly? How will they enforce limits, end conflict, and maintain authority?

The answers to all these questions — and so many others — reside in ParentShift.

Written by parenting educators Linda and Ty Hatfield and award-winning journalist and author Wendy Thomas Russell, this timely, compassionate guide distills a century's worth of research, science, and wisdom into an engaging, practical handbook for modern parents.

Built around ten universal truths that explain why all children behave the way they do (often at the most inopportune times!), ParentShift argues that only one child-rearing model — a model the authors call heart-centered — gives children what they need while honoring their ages, stages, and temperaments.  

As innovative as it is inspiring, ParentShift mines the work and advice of the world’s leading experts to bring you complete toolkits designed to solve virtually any problem — from toddler to teen — while strengthening the parent-child relationship and preserving each child’s sense of self-worth.
