Peaceful Discipline: Story Teaching, Brain Science, & Better Behavior helps mitigate adults’ very real struggles, and gives them specific strategies that increase cooperation and connection with the children in their lives. Offering an in-depth look at commonly used but often misguided parenting techniques, she offers insightful and practical alternatives based on the latest research. With her gentler and highly effective approach to raising children, author Sarah R. Moore explores:
- The body-brain connection to behavior, why most "consequences" don't work, and what to do instead
- How parents and children can regulate their nervous systems to foster greater connection, even in the thick of adversity
- How to use different types of storytelling, nonviolent communication, and play as effective and benevolent teachers
Moore covers these topics from the contexts of neuroscience, attachment theory, and best practices of conscious parenting.
"In this book, you’ll not only learn how stories make excellent nonpunitive teachers for our kids but why they do. Just as young children are prone to ask ‘why,’ adults also want to ‘see it to believe it.’ I’ll show you the why. I’ll share the science behind my recommendations, and you’ll learn lots of ways to have a more positive and connected relationship with your children. You’ll discover ways to stay calm even when you’re angry or frustrated. You’ll also hear about ways to increase connection and cooperation with your kids without yelling at them or shaming them. You might just go to sleep at night feeling downright good about your parenting." – Sarah R. Moore
