Raising a Self-Disciplined Child is the groundbreaking book parents have been waiting for--a remarkably positive approach to a style of discipline that builds children up-from the acclaimed authors of Raising Resilient Children. Filled with realistic, practical strategies and sample scenarios, it shows you how to teach your child, ages 6 through 16, the value of self-control, self-reliance, and self-assurance: the all-important skills that will last him a lifetime.


“Practical and clear in its suggestions, direct and supportive in its tone, Raising Resilient Children is the perfect book for parents searching for a caring method to help their children grow into healthy, loving, and mature adults.”
--William Pollack, Ph.D., author of Real Boys

“Brooks and Goldstein help mothers and fathers focus on their child's strengths, not on his or her weaknesses. The result is a happier, more resilient child.”
--Michael Thompson, Ph.D., author of Raising Cain
