DISCIPLINE: Parenting expert Barbara Coloroso explains how punishment is adult oriented and arouses resentment but discipline increases responsibilities and decision-making and decreases limits and boundaries. The more parents can empower kids to be self-disciplined the less they have to be involved with disciplining their kids.

TANTRUMS: Barbara Coloroso describes the three D's distract, disorient and disengage and provides tips to deal with tantrums. An "institutional hug" combined with rocking will help calm kids down (bribes only reinforce bad behaviour). Letting kids make choices during a tantrum can help them to feel empowered.
