Who's in Control?: Dr. Balter's Guide to Discipline Without Combat

Lawrence Balter, Author, Anita Shreve, With Poseidon Press $16.45 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-62507-8
Balter, host of a syndicated radio show offering advice to parents, and Shreve, authors of Dr. Balter's Child Sense, present a supplement to that guide. The first book addressed problems encountered in caring for children up to age five; here the advice covers discipline from infancy to pre-adolescence. The authors' stated objective is to help parents avoid inflicting punishment that sets up an adversarial relationship between them and their children. Individual critical stages in the development of boys and girls are discussed in separate chapters. Summing up each section are lists of realistic expectations, suggested parental goals and techniques for dealing with specific situations that arise as children mature. First serial to Parenting magazine; paperback rights to Pocket Books; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates. (January 28)
