I don't want to use spanking for discipline, for all the reasons listed in the topic below. Any recommendations for books on other methods of discipline? I feel like I need more tools in my toolbox. When 4 year old DS is screeching at the top of his lungs, and we're just trying to get him dressed for bed...*sigh* I know in that case, he was overtired and just got set off when we did something that he didn't want. DS has such an issue with screaming when he's upset/frustrated. We need to help teach him other ways to deal with his frustration.
