What Makes This Book Different?

Love me when I Least deserve it because that is when I most need it

Yelling and punishing is exhausting and makes you feel guilty and defeated. It’s as if your reaction replaces your ability to think. That’s because when you're angry and stressed your mind becomes
flooded with emotions, making thinking difficult, so you react. When you respond, your mind remains clear enough to think about, and enforce, the learning that’s needed for your child and the situation.

You know, deep inside, how you want to parent. No parent has the capacity, when involved in an emotional situation, to put the situation on pause while they read a full chapter to search for a way
to find a calmer outcome. This book speaks to the dream you have of parenting by teaching and being supportive, instead of yelling and punishing.

Stop Reacting and Start Responding™

  • Is a no-nonsense reality-based book sharing the kinds of situations that “real” families, not TV families,
    deal with every day.
  • Tackles the emotions that both parent and child experience when misbehavior occurs.
  • Acts like your own personal parenting guide, showing you how to respond when you’re involved in a
    power struggle, an argument, lack of cooperation, sibling issues, lying, and so much more.
  • Explores a new non-yelling way to deal with situations so parents can remain calm, loving supportive
    and firm at the same time.
  • Shares a new fresh perspective that acknowledges a parent’s wisdom, and the fact that you know your
    child better than anyone, and know what will, and won’t, work in your family.
  • No scenario is longer than 2 pages, each with a quick view at the end making it easy to refresh your memory
    when you need to.
  • Almost each situation shares a sample conversation, showing you the words to use in order to resolve
    things by responding, not reacting, when things don’t go as planned.

A perfect example is when a child says “No!” A parent’s normal tendency is to yell and punish to teach a child that
saying “No!” is disrespectful, and not allowed. Stop Reacting and Start Responding shares how to explore the feelings
that motivated the resistance as you teach your child what (s)he should have said instead.
