Discipline is difficult for every family, but when a parent is recovering from drug or alcohol abuse, setting and upholding behavioral limits can be particularly tough. In this familial situation, it's possible that trust has been broken, emotional boundaries trampled, and abuse perpetrated. Parents often do not have the skills necessary to set effective boundaries and follow through with appropriate disciplinary consequences. In Positive Discipline for Parenting in Recovery, authors Jane Nelsen, Riki Intner, and Lynn Lott, all professional counselors working with parents in recovery, give suggestions and advice to help recovering parents learn effective parenting--and disciplinary--skills. In chapters discussing communication, building routines, setting up support networks, and finding ways to break co-dependence patterns, the authors provide tools that will help the entire family recover from unhealthy patterns. --Ericka LutzFrom the Back Cover:
