Creative Correction

I'm so happy that you are interested in my book, "Creative Correction". My desire is to help moms and dads find practical help and fresh hope for the arduous, yet rewarding, task of raising healthy, happy children.

I have three children, ages 8,9 & 11, including a son diagnosed with ADHD. It was out of sheer desperation that I came up with many of the discipline ideas in this book. Traditional child-rearing methods are a good place to start but I found, as I'm sure you have as well, that my three children just aren't cookie cutter kids. They each required, and deserved, discipline that took into account their own inherent strengths and weaknesses.

My friends have urged me for years to write down some of my ideas, stories and insights for disciplining my children. I can only hope the ideas in "Creative Correction" will help you as much as they have helped me to enjoy the process of parenting.

Synopsis: Creative Correction is a parenting book filled with hundreds of practical and unique ways to discipline children that will take you beyond time-outs and spankings.

This book is organized with busy parents like you in mind. The first section of each chapter includes real-life, often hilarious, situations from the author's own experiences that illustrate common disciplinary problems most parents face. Each chapter concludes with an extensive "toolbox" overflowing with creative yet practical ideas gathered from parents all over the nation.

For example: Leaving a mess? The next time your child "forgets" to put something away, put it away for him. When he asks where it is, tell him that he'll have to look for it. Believe me, he will learn that it's a lot more trouble to find something that Mom has hidden than it is to put it away in the first place.

Forgetting to feed a pet? Try putting her lunch money or lunch bag in a box next to the pet's cage. That way, your youngster won't get to eat unless his pet eats first.

Sloppy schoolwork? Buy a printing or cursive workbook from your local teachers supply store. Then ask your child, "What takes longer: a report done neatly in 15 minutes or one you've sped through in 10 that must be redone and warrants a page of handwriting practice?"

Toddler independence? If your little one balks at holding your hand while in a parking lot or crossing the street, give him a choice. Remind him, "I can either hold your hand or hold your hair." Independence isn't quite so appealing on those terms.

These are just a handful of the hundreds of proven, effective ideas for correction. There is also a chapter full of helpful ideas to motivate your children with incentives and rewards that not only curb negative behavior but build positive character qualities at the same time.

I have saved the best part of the book for last - the topical index. If you find yourself in the middle of an issue with your child, simply turn to the back up the book, look up the infraction, and be directed to a handful of ways to handle the situation
