Out of Control, Why Disciplining Your Child Doesn’t Work and What Will, Shefali Tsabary, Ph. D.
ALL of Dr. Shefali Tsabary’s books are great. If you only read one, this is it. Here she explains how discipline is a huge cause of generations of dysfunction. Just like our parents did, we perpetuate and project our own subconscious expectations, fears, needs, right/wrongs/shoulds and mixed messages onto our kids. By waking up to what is happening with your child while becoming aware of what is going on with you, you learn to see and develop your child’s authenticity, while also teaching how to contain certain behaviors to live peacefully with others.
