Overview

No Parent or Educator Can Afford to Ignore This Groundbreaking Work!
Bestselling authors H. Stephen Glenn and Jane Nelsen have helped hundreds of thousands of parents raise capable, independent children with Raising Self-Reliant Children in a Self-Indulgent World. On its tenth anniversary, this parenting classic returns with fresh, up-to-date information to offer you inspiring and workable ideas for developing a trusting relationship with children, as well as the skills to implement the necessary discipline to help your child become a responsible adult.
Those who think in terms of leniency versus strictness will be surprised. This book goes beyond these issues to teach children to be responsible and self-reliant—not through outer-directed concerns, such as fear and intimidation, but through inner-directed behavior, such as feeling accountable for one's commitments. Inside, you'll discover how to instill character-building values and traits in your child that last a lifetime.
"During these turbulent days when families are in disarray and children are getting the short end of the stick, this book can be very helpful to parents who are struggling to bring up self-reliant children. Even after raising five of my own and becoming a grandfather for the seventh time, I got some new ideas out of it!"—Art Linkletter
"An inspiring, workable formula for developing closeness, trust, dignity, and respect . . . a real gem."—Becky Ridgeway, School Social Worker

In this brilliant and passionate work, two of our nation's most respected educators offer an original explanation of why so many young people don't feel capable. Once they explore the nature of the problem, Glenn and Nelsen proceed to offer a blueprint designed to help children.

    This book changed my life!

    I was frustrated by what to do to get my children to listen, take ownership, and just basically behave. After reading this book and using the strategies suggested, my job as a stay-at-home mom was made a lot easier. Try it, it really works! I have recommended this book to all my friends who struggle with how to discipline their kids.
