Best Selling Parenting Author In Town

Parenting trainer and the best selling author of "Discipline Without Distress" Judy Arnall in town over the weekend to speak at a learning conference on the campus of U-N-B Saint John. 

Arnall, whose a mother of 5, tells CHSJ News parents can use bribery and the threat of punishment with their children when they're young but not so much as they get older. That's when you want to have influence over how your children behave as you start losing control.

Arnall says it's essential parents control their anger because it teaches their children self control and how to contain their anger which is a necessary life skill. Arnall reminds parents that they are models for how their children behave.

One piece of advice she has for parents is to do the best you can with the resources you have and grow a really thick skin. Another is to stick to no when you say it to your kids and don't waver.
