The child psychologist Dr. Vanessa Lapointe joins me now. She’s just published a well-received book, Discipline Without Damage: How to Get Kids to Behave Without Messing Them Up. In the book she offers science that explains why the sort of discipline we’ve grown up with might not be ideal for the children we’re raising, as well the book offers examples and exercises that offer a better way of getting kids to behave. I’ll get Dr. Lapointe to tell us about what she’s seeing that explains ‘What’s the matter with kids today?’ and how adults ought to interact better with children. Vanessa Lapointe is a registered psychologist and founder of The Wishing Star Developmental Clinic in Surrey, BC. She regularly speaks at conferences across Canada and abroad on childhood development and psychology. Visit www.drvanessalapointe.com  for more information. This book is published by LifeTree Media. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Vanessa Lapointe; Dr. Lapointe, good morning.
