about

A smart, easy-to-implement, and unique approach to positive disciplining

Drawing on her highly successful methods developed in her private practice, Dr. Cristine Chandler lays out clear, step-by-step instructions to help parents foster good behavior in their children based on the positive premise: that children behave well when they understand clearly what is expected of them.

Most discipline problems occur when parents are inconsistent about what they expect. Four Weeks to a Better-Behaved Child shows parents how to implement the "4Cs" of discipline in their daily practice: use clear, consistent, contingent consequences. Moreover, in this concise, straightforward book, Dr. Chandler challenges several commonly used approaches to discipline and provides alternatives. She shows parents:

  • Why punishment is often the least effective way to discipline children
  • Why anger never works
  • Why "time-out" works only sometimes--and what to do instead
  • How to use consequences to encourage--and get--good behavior
Cristine Chandler, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist with more than 25 years of experience. Her private practice focuses on families and children, and about half of her clients come to her to address discipline issues. She lives in Philadelphia.
