Listen to guest Dr. Laura Markham along with hosts Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker as they discuss how to get kids cooperating without yelling, bribes, threats or punishment. API has invited Dr. Laura to share with us about how we can stop yelling and start connecting, including:

  • Why attachment is the foundation of your child's ability to manage herself, from babyhood right through the teen years.
  • Regulating your own emotions so you can help your child.
  • Why kids misbehave -- and how to help them WANT to cooperate.
  • What the last thirty years of research tell us about the kind of discipline that helps kids turn out great.
  • How to set effective limits -- and when it's ok to "give in."
  • Why your relationship with your child is the most important factor in effective discipline.
  • Helping kids process their emotions.
  • How to use play to get better behavior from your child.
  • Why Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is more important to your child's success in life than IQ
