||Dr. Michael Popkin
demonstrates how moms and dads can address the complicated issues
of responsibility and discipline with young children, making
positive approaches to conflict almost seem like fun. Of course,
that's saying a lot (and many adults will consider it a stretch),
but having come through those years with my own youngsters, I
can report that this program helped me recognize the good steps
I tookand times when I could have done better. Hosted by Gerardo
Davila and featuring well-acted vignettes of true-to-life interactions
between parents and kids, the video shows active (authoritarian)
approaches to discipline, contrasting those with the traditional
concept of reward and punishment. According to Popkin, "In
the long run, a stronger person inflicting pain on a smaller,
weaker person may cause more harm than good to the child and
the relationship." Far from offering a Pollyanna view, the
dramatizations show adults and kids behaving badly before going
over the same situation with different strategies (such as using
effective "I" messages) that will lead to much better
outcomes. A helpful guide to dealing with some of the most challenging
aspects of parenting, this is highly recommended. Aud: P. (C.
