Overview

Parenting is a puzzling task. The rules are always changing, expert opinions vary widely and strategies that work with child number one are rarely effective for child number two. But help is on the way! Mark Chamberlain begins his delightful book by describing “How To Host an Alien,” offering understanding of those confusing little beings we call our children. “How to Neutralize Parent Paralyzers” teaches parents to work past stumbling blocks of guilt, feelings of inadequacy, and perfectionism.

Readers will learn such tricks of the trade as learning to pounce when a child is behaving rather than misbehaving, how to channel children's attention back to choices they can make, and how to make bad behavior costly. (The author's own mother finally posted a sign, “10 cents per slam,” on the back door to curb door slamming habits.)

Kids Are from Jupiter is a funny, sympathetic, sensible and enormously practical guide for Earthling moms and dads everywhere.

About the Author:

Mark Chamberlain is a practicing psychologist who has worked with children and their families in a variety of clinical settings over the last thirteen years. He and his wife, Jennifer, are the parents of four boys.

    Instructive, insightful, and fun to read

    As the founder and publisher of Momscape (www.momscape.com--an online magazine for moms), I read a lot of parenting books. Kids are from Jupiter is a wonderful resource because it provides us with the support, validation, and practical instructions we need to confidently discipline our kids. Dr. Chamberlain drives home the importance of understanding¿-of studying--the different ways our kids react to the world, and why. This understanding grants a greater empathy and compassion for our own little Jovians. The author¿s advice is practical and realistic. His strategies are straightforward. His style blends humor and insight with anecdotes that are, at times, laugh-out-loud funny. The book¿s structure is perfect for busy parents, too. The short chapters (2-4 pages) allowed me to sneak in a chapter or two throughout the day.
