The parenting classic, now revised with new chapters, checklists, and information about today's most pressing issues regarding our children

This bestselling guide rejects "quick-fix" solutions and focuses on helping kids develop their own self-discipline by owning up to their mistakes, thinking through solutions, and correcting their misdeeds while leaving their dignity intact. Barbara Coloroso shows these principles in action through dozens of examples -- from sibling rivalry to teenage rebellion; from common misbehaviors to substance abuse and antisocial behavior. She also explains how to parent strong-willed children, effective alternatives to time-outs, bribes, and threats, and how to help kids resolve disputes and serious injustices such as bullying.

Filled with practical suggestions for handling the ordinary and extraordinary tribulations of growing up, kids are worth it! helps you help your children grow into responsible, resilient, resourceful adults -- not because you tell them to, but because they want to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read.... This is an excellent book that every parent should read. I can't recommend it enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!! This book explains why the typical methods of discipline & parenting are used to control children, rather than teach them to think for themselves. Ms. Coloroso explains the 3 types of parents, and then gives practical advice on what to do to empower our children to make their own decisions, solve conflict, and become independant thinkers. Well written, a must have for every parent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read!! This book gives a lot of information on how we can affect our children in a positive way. At first, I was thinking to myself, well, that's all nice and well, but what's left to be done... Dont worry and just continue reading, the good stuff is further on. I strongly advise this book to every parent, it helps deprogram some stuff that just isnt helpful or productive in parenting.
