The covers of such magazines as Time and Newsweek have described parents as living in &́#x80;œmayhem&́#x80; and &́#x80;œmadness&́#x80; with their children. TV&́#x80;™s Supernanny regularly captures kids wildly, unbelievably out of control. How did our families get to such a state? Child psychologist Dr. Beth Grosshans has the answer. And mothers and fathers everywhere are listening. In what is sure to become a much-discussed blockbuster, Dr. Grosshans reveals why she believes nearly a half-century of parenting advice&́#x80;”with its emphasis on talking, exalting children&́#x80;™s self-esteem, and time-outs&́#x80;”is largely to blame for today&́#x80;™s lack of discipline. Her innovative ideas and techniques challenge this prevailing culture, proving that power and authority are as essential as love and good intentions to effective parenting. She persuasively explains why kids can only grow up healthy and strong when firmly led by their parents&́#x80;™ experience and better judgment, and provides a clear, easy five step program to follow. She enables parents to look at themselves clearly and identify their child-rearing style; they are often shocked to discover how their own behavior has inadvertently caused an imbalance in the family&́#x80;™s structure. Reading Beyond Time-Out is akin to sitting with Dr. Grosshans in her clinical office&́#x80;”and her core truths about healthy parent-child relationships are timeless.
