Description



About the Book



Based on her clinical experience, a psychiatrist presents a valuable guide that helps parents and children navigate the emotional and psychological minefields of family dynamics.



Book Synopsis



After being bombarded by parenting fad after parenting fad, moms and dads finally have a friendly, commonsense guide to raising thriving children.

Today, many parents have rejected the dictatorships they resented from their own childhoods. But they overcorrected by turning into child-pleasers. Showering praise and letting kids rule the roost has actually eroded the very self-esteem parents are trying to create.

Using her clinical experience, psychiatrist Robin Berman shows parents how they can take charge while building a loving family with deep connections. How children learn love and respect at home becomes the template for how they show love and respect in life. It's a huge task, but Dr. Berman is your ally every step of the way.

Every parent's struggles are reflected (many of them comically), but so are heartwarming triumphs. Parents, teachers and children themselves recount turning points at which they figured out what great parenting looked like and the magic it unlocked.

This engaging book--a perfect mix of medical research and inspirational anecdotes--just might be the key to being the parent you want to be and the parent your children need.



From the Back Cover



Children used to be seen and not heard. Now they are the center of their parents' universe. We need to find a graceful middle way.

Parents today seem skittish about asserting their parental authority. They indulge children's demands, tantrums, and endless negotiations for fear of hurting their children's feelings. Sadly, this is creating a generation of psychologically fragile kids, and parents are undermining the very self-esteem they are trying so earnestly to build. Tiger mom, helicopter parent, the cool dad--between these extremes lies a better way to raise thriving, well-adjusted children.
