What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
Janet Levine's newest book is to this generation of parents what Haim Ginott's "Between Parent and Child" was to the '60s and Thomas Gordon's "Parent Effectiveness Training" was to the '70s. This book addresses people who have the most motivation to bring about change: parents. They will find effective action strategies to promote greater understanding, compassion and self-esteem for both parent and child. I highly recommend this book to all parents.
Sammylane Wirth, PH.D Family Therapist, Parent Educator

Janet Levine has written a wonderful book. She has translated and applied the material on personality typology in a manner which is cogent, accessible and engaging for both clinicians and parents. This is an extremely valuable resource for everyone who seeks to understand parent-child interaction, and will help many individuals become more empathic toward themselves and the ones they love.
Joseph G. Schaller, Psy.D. Clinical Psychologist; Director, The Postgraduate Center, and Adjunct Assistant Professor, The Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology, Widener University;Private Practice with Children and Adults

Janet Levine's revolutionary and valuable new book directs readers to specific action programs to make lasting improvements within their family dynamics. It is clearly written, helpful and empowering; a must read for all parents, would-be parents, and professionals who work with parents.
