Beyond Time-Out: From Chaos to Calm
by Beth A. Grosshans, PhD
From Chaos To Calm
{According to this book there are parenting styles.  Are you a Pleaser, A Pushover, A Forcer or An Outlier?  I am a mixture of 2.  This book has been so eye-opening for me, and I am only halfway through it!  It is a breath of fresh air, reminding me that I am the parent and my kids benefit from me taking back the power that belongs to a loving parent.  I think parents have unknowingly given kids too much power, and it is not kind.  It is too much for them…they need parents to be parents!  Love this book.}
