It is every parent's greatest challenge.

How can they discipline their children whilst at the same time loving and supporting them?

Few believe in harsh punishments any more? But neither do they want their children to behave badly - in the home, at school, or among friends.

In 'Parenting Without Tears: Guide To Loving Discipline', the leading childcare writer Anne Coates sets out a clear strategy for discipling children, whilst making sure they feel loved and supported.

Discipline, she argues, should be thought of in the context of teaching and learning not harsh punishments. Parents have to take responsibility for the discipline of their offspring and not blame schools and society when things go wrong.

A loving parents sets limits and explains consequences so that from an early age children learn self-control and self-discipline. This takes lots of time and energy but the strategies outlined in the book will help every beleaguered parent achieve that goal.

'Parenting Without Tears: Guide To Loving Discipline' details strategies for effective parenting, explaining how to improve relationships so that a child grows up in a nurturing and loving environment, understands boundaries and develops self-discipline and self-esteem.

The book also covers common situations in which children misbehave, from sibling rivalry to refusing to go to bed.

It is the single, invaluable guide that every parent faced with discipling their child needs.

Anne Coates is a journalist and author who has contributed to a wide range of parenting and women's magazines including The Guardian and The Scotsman, specialising in health, parenting and education issues.

In 2007, Anne founded the website Parenting Without Tears and, after chairing the management committee of a local nursery, and then a primary school, she is now a member of Southwark Diocesan Board of Education.

Anne Coates is the author of the best-selling 'Parenting Without Tears: Living With Teens'.

After writing short stories for magazines, Anne has just published a collection: 'Cheque-Mate & Other Tales of the Unexpected' and is currently working on a novella.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)
