ParentShift (Ebook)


This extraordinary guidebook offers a refreshing new approach to raising confident, healthy, whole human beings, from toddler to teen. Groundbreaking in both its scope and methodology, ParentShift challenges some of our most popular disciplinary tools — including punishments, threats, bribery, and rewards — all of which, science has shown, sabotage long-term goals we have for our kids. Child development experts Linda and Ty Hatfield, along with award-winning journalist and author Wendy Thomas Russell, dismantle the pervasive myths that have given rise to these tactics and provide more than a dozen “toolkits” designed to help parents solve virtually any household challenge while strengthening the parent-child relationship and protecting each child’s self-esteem. Parents learn to:

  • Set consistent limits and boundaries.

  • Curtail power struggles and sibling rivalry.

  • Move beyond timeouts, reward charts and other

    outdated tactics.

  • Respond thoughtfully to outbursts and tantrums.

  • Prepare children to meet life’s challenges.

  • Ensure they become strong boundary-setters.

  • Help prevent alcohol abuse, addiction, early sex,

    high-risk behavior and other disturbing trends among


  • Build open, trusting parent-child bonds that keep

    kids turning to parents, instead of peers, for guidance.
