The Confident Child: Raising a Child to Try, Learn and Care by Terri E. Apter, Apter, T. E. Apter

Raising confident, motivated children is a parent's greatest challenge. Drawing on her own extensive research on children and parents, and on Daniel Goleman's concept of emotional intelligence, Terri Apter has created a strategy based on emotional coaching—learning to respond appropriately to a child's feelings—for parents to promote self-esteem in children.

Children who believe in themselves and have confidence are known to experience future successes, to be less frustrated in learning, and to show overall higher performance. This compassionate guidebook shows parents how to help their child acquire self-esteem building skills and offers parents a plan for learning how to discipline, communicate, and deal with their children's emotional life, an important link to building self-esteem.

In an accessible style, with down-to-earth examples of children's lives in the family and in school, Apter shows parents how to raise a child to solve problems, to be socially active and understand others, to express feelings appropriately, and to manage emotions—all of which are crucial skills in developing confidence. Every parent and caring adult should own a copy of this necessary parenting guide.
