Part of a series dealing with common parenting challenges, this newest by Brazelton, with coauthor Sparrow, zeroes in on the topic of discipline, focusing on infancy through age six. Brazelton walks parents through with a gentle tone, modeling for readers that compassion is needed even when dealing with children who need to be disciplined. The authors point out that discipline involves teaching (not punishment), providing boundaries that all kids require. Children who can count on boundaries and rules, Brazelton says, feel safe and loved. Kids learn the rules through repetition, consistency and clear messages, the authors say, and though it may be frustrating for parents to repeat the same lessons or instructions, this is how children learn. Part of the process involves "testing" parents to see if they are serious, so clarity and consistency will help, as will sharing the responsibilities for discipline with a spouse. A useful section describes specific strategies, outlining the pros and cons of such tactics as time outs, taking toys away or docking allowances for older children. The volume helps parents comprehend the importance of discipline and the best ways to achieve it, with the goal eventually being a sense of self-discipline as the child grows. Compact and user-friendly, this is an essential addition to a busy parent's Brazelton library.
