Do you often find yourself in a constant battle of power with your child only to come out of it defeated and exhausted? How often do you successfully curb your child’s unwanted and undesirable behaviours? Selectively looking the other way could be the solution to your woes!

Dr Catherine Pearlman, an eminent parenting expert, coined a revolutionary four-step technique known as ‘Ignore it!’ to help frustrated parents. Based on extensive research, Dr Pearlman finds that when parents stop responding to inappropriate behaviour, the behaviour wanes. In this book, she explains the types of behaviour that can and cannot be ignored and the effective ways to ignore misbehaviours in different scenarios such as in public. Dr Pearlman also shares tips on how to encourage positive behaviours and impose consequences to tackle inappropriate behaviours that cannot be ignored.

Packed with practical tips and step-by-step methods, Ignore It! is the go-to book for parents looking for effective strategies to increase parenting satisfaction and improve parent-child relationships.
