A parenting handbook focuses on children from newborn to age nine and explains how to develop self-esteem and responsibility to help youngsters become confident, morally fit adults.
Famed relationships expert John Gray--author or the phenomenal bestseller MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS--has finally given in to his fans' requests and written a book about raising children. In this guide, Gray asserts that all children are born good and reasons that it's the parents' responsibility to help their child grow into a respectful, happy adult by providing a nurturing environment that will elicit their child's innate talents. He explains how parents can motivate their child to enjoy cooperation and communication. His "Five Messages that Children Need to Learn" include "It's okay to be different," "It's okay to make mistakes," "It's okay to express negative emotions," "It's okay to want more," and "It's okay to say no, but remember Mom and Dad are the bosses." These messages are intended to help a young child develop important interpersonal skills--such as how to forgive, share, delay gratification, and build self-esteem--necessary for a successful, joyous life.
