Effective discipline

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The Southwest Harbor Public Library will be offering a book group for parents of small children. Laurie Parker, a licensed family therapist, will be the facilitator.

The book is called “1, 2, 3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2 -12,” by Thomas Phelan, PhD. It provides strategies for parents to use with children when the need for discipline arises. The book is presented with humor and numerous examples of what a parent can do to respond to the challenging behaviors children exhibit in the routines of daily living.

The group is open to anyone with children from preschool to early elementary. It will meet four Wednesdays from 10 to 11 a.m., beginning Oct. 9, in the Clark Room at library. Call 244-70654.
