Why do children suffer this fate? What becomes of our lives is overwhelmingly a function of learned experience...from our family, our peers, and the larger culture...but first and foremost from our parents. The vast majority of parents are good people and would not do anything intentionally to harm their child. But parents are people who are a function of their own upbringing and learned experience. They have their own fears, frustrations, angers, and desires. And they see things through the lens of that experience and those emotions, which in turn impacts how they interact with their children and others.
Raising a Happy Child seeks to provide parents with the means to step outside themselves, to be able to experience their child, themselves, and the world around them mostly free of these emotions, thus enabling them to provide their child at all times with the nurturing and love it needs to be happy and secure. This book also guides parents in addressing carious critical development issues that arise in the course of a child's life.
