Overview

"The most important job you will ever have is being a parent. Parents usually

raise their children the way they were parented, no matter how good or bad

their experience. People laugh when they say, “Babies don’t come with an

instruction manual.” The Respectful Parent: A Manual for Moms and Dads

may be the closest book to that much needed manual. This book is for parents

whose normal children are driving them up the wall, and parents who want to

improve their parenting skills while things are still going well.

The Respectful Parent is written in a personal style by an author, who has

over 55 years of clinical experience working with families and individuals of all

ages. Dr. Deutch believes that respect between parent and child, along with a

toolbox of great common sense techniques, is the key to having a cooperative,

happy and productive family. Spanking, yelling, and threats may work on your

child in the immediate situation, but scientific research shows that in the long

term, they have many negative and sometimes catastrophic side effects. The

Respectful Parent teaches how to use positive and democratic ways to nurture

children. These ideas are based on the commonsensical philosophy of Doctors

Alfred Adler and Rudolph Dreikurs.

Learn to use the power of encouragement, the family council, individual special

time, natural and logical consequences, and simple communication techniques. Become

your child’s consultant rather than boss. Raise your child’s self-esteem, courage,

mental health, and even his or her I.Q."
