Discipline without shouting or spanking
Jenny Wyckoff and Barbara Unell
And something now very different now . This is a book on how to learn to your children discipline the relatively easy way .
As you may see this is a English lang book translated into English . This publisher is specialized in piratical books for handling children but has also cultural activities!
This book is mainly a tips and hints book but has a special structure for much easier use (ie as reference ) written this way :

How to solve these situations with do’s and don’t;s

Her is an example
How to handle a child which is a ‘couch slave’ and plays either Playstation or watches TV
Obstruction : switch off the TV , do more action , let you child find new ideas to be more energetic
- solving this problem : let the child using them (as eg watching TV for less than 2 hours ), show her to be more active , praise her when the subject is carried out
- don’t’s : don’t ler you r child watch TV the time you work on the house , neither leave the child eat while watching TV
Some other nice tips for discipline:
-charge your child a work to do in a specified time
-the grandma rule : ‘ when you work , you eat’ , ie a style of agreement “ when you carry out the work I want , you will what you wish”
-praise your child after she carries her job!

I think that this book is a good companion to embarrassed parents.
