You don't need to know every trick, or do everything right to raise a great kid. It isn't that difficult.
But you do need to get a few things right. (Six actually…)
Every day you need to teach your children to deal with their emotions, to do certain things and not do other things; to defuse anger, solve their own problems and turn everyday fears into powerful self-confidence. And your response to these six everyday moments determines both how you feel as a parent, AND who your child grows up to be.
These six powerful and positive responses will get you started in the right direction each and every time—through the pre-teen and teen years—to raise your creative, enjoyable great kids… with joy and ease.
The “Great Kids Made Easy” Series (Early Childhood, Elementary School Years, and Pre/Teen) draws from the psychologist/author’s 25 years working with children across of all ages (pre-12) in diverse settings (urban/ rural) and multiple cultures (Native American, Hispanic, urban multi-cultural) and from his published books, and years of Head Start and teacher-training workshops.
The quick-read presentation and multiple dialog examples make this series of three books easily understandable to new or limited-English parents, yet equally challenging to the experienced parent.
If you’re a caring, busy parent these are the six essential, indispensable skills you’ll want to learn early, and be reminded of every day!
