Peaceful Parenting (Guest: Dr. Nancy Buck)

Dr. Nancy Buck, a developmental psychologist, suggests parents can’t control their children, and they shouldn’t even try. Author of Peaceful Parenting and the more recent Why Do Kids Act That Way?, Nancy shares simple and effective strategies for eliminating battles at home and improving relationships in the family.

She is a Senior Faculty Member of the William Glasser Institute, and contributes regularly to the Psychology Today blog. Nancy has dedicated her career to helping adults better understand children, what drives them, and how to guide them effectively.
