Product Details


“As a parent of a toddler, as a business owner, as a woman-on-the-go – this book provides the necessary blueprint for raising a well-rounded child and creating a more peaceful home.” 
–Rachel Paige Goldstein, Founder of Agent of Change Events

“This is a welcome book for all parents juggling work and raising children.  With an understanding of the complexities of career and families, the authors address what matters most for children- to be understood and nurtured, especially when they are having a hard time.  This caring and straightforward approach will help parents know what their children need and empower them to stay connected while providing appropriate limits.”
–Tovah P. Klein, Ph.D. , Executive Director, Barnard College Center for Toddler Development

“Now more than ever, it is critical that parents impart in their children an intrinsic and upbeat tool kit for self-discipline, empathy and developing character.  Positive Discipline for Today’s Busy (and Overwhelmed) Parent is a compassionate, practical, and psychologically grounded guide for parents who are eager to stay connected to their children in real life, helping them face life challenges with self-control and optimism.
— Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair, author of The Big Disconnect:  Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age

“As a progressive educator, school leader, and parent of twin boys, I find Nelsen, Bill, and Marchese’s advice to be as timeless as it is timely, as profound as it is simple, and as inspiring as it is instructive.  The authors give us permission to humanize both ourselves and our children, and they remind us that effective parenting involves being with rather than doing to our kids.”
-JED LIPPARD, Ed.D., Dean of Children’s Programs and Head of the School for Children at Bank Street College of Education

“Every parent needs to own Positive Discipline for Today’s Busy (and Overwhelmed) Parent. An honest read that will make you feel like you are not alone. This book will give you the tools you need to parent better in the modern world and will build your confidence as a parent.”
–Lyss Stern, CEO, best-selling author and mom of three

“I’m so grateful to Positive Discipline for reminding everyone how important it is to be kind AND firm when parenting. These practices help me raise self-reliant problem solvers – and I know they will help you too. Joy is one of Positive Discipline’s leading disciples, and this book is an invaluable parenting and coaching tool.”
–Kristen Glosserman, Life Coach and mother of four
