No : why kids--of all ages--need to hear it and ways parents can say it by David Allen Walsh( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's not just a one-word answer, it's a parenting strategy. By saying No when you need to, you help your children develop self-reliance, self-discipline, respect, integrity, the ability to delay gratification, and a host of other crucial character traits they need. Although the importance of using No should be obvious, many parents have a hard time saying it--even when they know they should--when other parents and the culture around them are being permissive. Psychologist and parenting expert Walsh provides you with an arsenal of tactics, explanations, and examples for using No the right way with your kids. With Dr. Walsh's straightforward "parent tool kits," you can assess and improve your relationship with your kids, set and enforce limits that make sense for different ages (from toddlers to teens), and otherwise make No a positive influence on kids' behavior and in your overall family life.--From publisher description
Smart parenting, smarter kids : the one brain book you need to help your child grow brighter, healthier, and happier by David Allen Walsh( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When children are guided in healthy ways, their minds blossom and they are able to reach their full potential--academically, socially, physically, and emotionally. In his previous bestseller, Why Do They Act That Way?, Dr. David Walsh, an expert at translating cutting-edge neuroscience findings into practical parenting suggestions, showed how to manage the difficult teenage years by understanding how the adolescent brain develops. Now he's written a complete guide to parenting from birth through the teen years, with recommendations that will help maximize any child's potential. Some discoveries in neuroscience confirm age-old parental wisdom, while others may prompt you to make immediate changes; still other brain discoveries help explain behaviors that have puzzled parents forever. This book doesn't just describe new findings or explain interesting facts--it equips parents with usable information across a range of topics, like exercise, nutrition, play, sleep, stress, self-discipline, emotional intelligence, and connection.--From publisher description
