What's The Difference?

In Discipline That Makes a Difference, you'll discover the truth about behavior problems and create a discipline strategy to change these behaviors by shedding light on why discipline tactics often fail and how to apply effective discipline instead.

Your children are your greatest calling and Shelley understands that! In DTMaD she'll guide you through identifying your child’s most habitual bad behaviors, choosing effective consequences and discipline for your child based on his or her unique disposition, and show you how to use that information to get a handle on bad behavior in your home and train good behavior in its place!

Q: What age does Discipline That Makes a Difference work for?

A: DTMaD is designed to coach you through understanding why undesirable behavior occurs, choosing effective consequences, and implementing consistent and effective discipline, regardless of your child's age. These steps are applicable to children of all ages. 

Q: How long will it take me to see results from DTMaD?

A: Training good behavior through consistent and effective discipline produces the most rapid results in children under the age of 8. The amount of time it takes you to get results correlates directly to the amount of work and dedication you put in. Diletta had this to say, “I read your book "Discipline that makes a difference" and I want to thank you. You are really changing my life. I'm 47 and I'm a mother of three 14-12-10 yrs old. After I read your book, I started to practice what I learned immediately and in a few days, I have seen results I haven't seen for years. THANK YOU!!”  

Q: Is Discipline That Makes a Difference a physical book? eBook? Course? Do I print it out?

A: Discipline That Makes a Difference is an eBook (meaning it's delivered in digital form) as well as a workbook with guided questions. The ebook can be read on your mobile device, desktop, or laptop. The DTMaD eBook may also be printed out, once per purchase upon download. The workbook portion of the eBook provides questions that are intended to help you navigate effective discipline and put together a parenting action plan for discipline. Those workbook pages can be printed to fill out or you may use a separate notebook to record your answers and action plan!

Q: Do you offer a refund policy?  

A: The short answer is yes. However, without your diligent implementation and commitment to the process, the contents of DTMaD are merely words on a page. Simply reading them will not produce results. Only once you put it all into practice will the value of transformation be understood! That said, if you read DTMaD, complete the workbook, and follow through with implementation and consistency, and still don't see results after 30 days, you can contact us at shelley@mamaduck.com to request a refund. Further terms may apply. Please see full return policy here.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?

A: Mama Duck accepts most major credit cards as well as PayPal.
