I wrote Responsive Discipline as a “conversational course.” The tone and progression of information is informal. In a sense, you and I will have a conversation. As I wrote this material, I imagined sitting across from you at your kitchen table. Maybe we are having coffee together. You are not sitting at a desk in a classroom. No lectures here. You and I are just two people who could become friends visiting about what discipline means and how difficult it can be to respond to a child’s misbehavior.
The course is based on my belief that you have great strength, possibly overlooked, to deal with the challenges of childrearing. I also believe (if you are here as a parent) that you are taking the course because you deeply love your children. You would not be here if you did not care.
