How to get your children to do as they're told. Imagine if this was the case! Diane explains how to use the vital parenting tool of Effective Time Out with children of all ages. Emotional support and limit-setting are central to the understanding and effective use of Time Out. As parents, we need to respect and support our children's feelings. In addition, we need to set suitable boundaries and expectations so that our children can safely develop into self-disciplined adults. 'The thing that most distresses parents,' says Diane, 'is when they find they no longer enjoy their children's company.' This book goes a long way to changing that.
