Defining the true meaning of the “d” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem solving becomes a win/win situation. Inside this sanity-saving guide you’ll discover
strategies that help parents identify their own discipline philosophy - and master the best methods to communicate the lessons they are trying to impart
facts on child brain development - and what kind of discipline is most appropriate and constructive at all ages and stages
the way to calmly and lovingly connect with a child - no matter how extreme the behavior - while still setting clear and consistent limits
tips for navigating your children through a tantrum to achieve insight, empathy, and repair
twenty discipline mistakes even the best parents make - and how to stay focused on the principles of whole-brain parenting and discipline techniques.
Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authors’ suggestions to life, No-Drama Discipline shows you how to work with your child’s developing mind, peacefully resolve conflicts, and inspire happiness and strengthen resilience in everyone in the family.

Dry content for an audiobook
I don't doubt that the authors know what they're talking about or their research, but I struggled with the format of an audiobook for this type of book. I personally found their voices quite monotonous. The book also spends a lot of time explaining the brain which is necessary yet seems to go on for a long time before you get to any tangible strategies for actually dealing with behaviour. I would have liked for it to be shorter and more concise, as I think that would have made the audio aspect more easily digestible. As a result I have bought a physical copy of the paperback which I find more useful.

Challenged the way I thought about discipline
I admit I was sceptical when my wife suggested I read this. However it seems to make sense and it feels like it's making a difference with my son. If I think about it, there is commonality with some concepts and things I covered when doing a coaching course in the past.
Having now listened and seen improvements I'd recommend people try their approach.
Fyimthere is a useful crib sheet on their website that is useful to remember some of the techniques post listen.

I Can See Light At The End Of My Tunnel
I had reached the end of my rope with my 11 year old daughter's disrespect and defiance. After listening to No-Drama Discipline and using some of the technics taught in it I feel empowered! I actually understand my daughter's behavior much better and I now have the tools to direct and teacher her the proper way to handle herself when she doesn't want to do something. Instead of battling with her and handing out a punishment I'm able to step back and recognize which part of her brain she is using and help her move to the part of her brain that allows her to make better choices!! Thank you Drs Daniel and Tina!

Thought provoking book. I have already implemented some of the techniques in the book. I'm trying not to be reactive but rather I'm trying to connect with my child.
