Description - The Brat Stops Here! by Mary-Elaine Jacobsen

Bratty kids are a thing of the past with Mary-Elaine Jacobsen's inspired techniques. Mary-Elaine Jacobsen delivers a simple and effective method to end obnoxious, bratty and disobedient behaviour in 6-12 year olds. Mary-Elaine Jacobsen has helped families transform their children's behaviour using a unique approach that centres on the concept of "Privileges On/Privileges Off". If a child misbehaves, they can no longer enjoy any of their favourite activities until they make amends. Dr. Jacobsen comprehensively explains each part of the programme, with age-appropriate tips, and guides parents through: identifying desired behaviour; conveying expectations and consequences to children; revoking all privileges when the child crosses the line; and having the child earn back privileges by apologising for or correcting behaviour. Parents don't need a nanny. They need clear, helpful advice on what to do when the MTV generation bites back. And Mary-Elaine Jacobsen is the woman to give it to them.
