    Tina Payne Bryson: No Drama Discipline
    Tina Payne Bryson is the co-author, with Dan Siegel, of two New York Times bestsellers, The Whole Brain Child* and No Drama Discipline* — each of which has been translated into over twenty languages. She is a psychotherapist and the Executive Director of The Center for Connection in Pasadena, California, where she offers parenting consultations and provides therapy to children and adolescents.
    Key Points

    Much of what we do in the name of discipline is counter-productive.
    The original meaning of the word “discipline” is to teach.
    To effectively discipline (to teach kids skills to do better in the future), children have to be in a state of mind in which they can learn.
    Consequences can be counter-productive.
    If you’re being an effective disciplinarian, you should be disciplining less over time.
    “Time-outs” don’t teach kids anything, but taking the time to step away from the situation to talk to your kids does teach.
