Dr. Ray Guarendi employs four compact discs, one DVD, and a booklet to bring his extensive knowledge and personal experience to bear on almost every circumstance parents typically confront. In doing so, he demonstrates how parents' own innate judgement and experience can help them deal wisely with a multitude of child-rearing situations. They range from the core need for discipline and coping with a host of specific behavior problems to why too much reasoning is illogical and how to achieve calmer parenting.
