Discipline that you AND your child will feel good about!
The best non-punitive parenting book for living with "spirited" children
At last, a positive discipline book that is chock-full of practical tips, strategies, skills, and ideas for parents of babies through teenagers, without using any form of punishment or bribery, and it also explains EXACTLY what to do "in the moment" for every type of behaviour, from whining to web-surfing.
Parents and children today face very different challenges from those faced by the previous generation. Today's children play not only in the sandbox down the street, but also in the World Wide Web, which is too big and complex for parents to control and supervise. As young as age four, your children can contact the world and the world can contact them. A strong bond between you and your child is critical in order for your child to regard you as their trusted advisor.
Traditional discipline methods no longer work with today's children, and they destroy your ability to influence your increasingly vulnerable children who need you as their lifeline! You need new discipline tools!

"Discipline Without Distress is a thorough, detailed manual of non-violent, non-punitive gentle ways to address common behaviour problems for every age, from toddler to teen" Mothering Magazine September/October 2008
"The world is in desperate need of gentle, caring discipline techniques. Judy Arnall has created a wonderful, nurturing guide that all parents can benefit from."
Elizabeth Pantley, Author of The No-Cry Sleep Solution and The No-Cry Solution series.
"Offers a wealth of ideas and suggestions for raising children without the use of punishment of any kind."
Linda Adams, President and CEO of P.E.T., Parent Effectiveness Training, Gordon Training International.
"Parents always prefer to be loving but often don't know how. Arnall's book debunks all the old beliefs about discipline through painful measures such as punishment, consequences or bribes and provides far more effective and kind ways to raise well-behaved and thriving children."
Naomi Aldort Ph.D. Author, Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves
"Arnall, a parent educator with vast organization experience and a mother of five children, admits that one size does not fit all. Her approach is based on both the age and needs of the child. No spanking, no time-outs, no bribery. This book is dense and wide-ranging in its discussions and approaches."
U.S. Book Review
"There are good solid tips for parents of children of all ages."
