Published on

Parents, learn why saying "don't" to kids doesn't get the results you want and what to say instead. I created this slide show from the very first parenting challenge I sent out to my on-line audience. Now I send out a new parenting challenge each week to help parents learn Positive Discipline strategies for improving their parenting skills. I hope you enjoy the slides - Kelly Pfeiffer, Think It Through Parenting
