When you are troubled with parenting decisions and are worried that you may have got it wrong, answers may be found in this book. A guide to understanding your child's nurturing requirements, from toddler to teenage. More
Sometimes you are driven to frustration when it comes to your children. Is it me or is it them is a question you ponder. You may feel that you have a bad child that you can do nothing about and yet other people don't seem to have that problem. Bring Them Up, Don't Put Them down gives parents an insight into their child as well as themselves to help understand the best way to deal with some of parenting's most common problems. It introduces you into the concept of how feeding back positive assessments of your child's behaviour to your child will help them understand what it is to be a grown up. It balances this with an understanding of why giving them the freedom to make mistakes ensures that they can survive both success and failure. As a parent you are encouraged to reflect on the possibility that it is likely to be you that creates the issues with your child that you struggle with and gives you direction on how to counter this. A book full of advice for dealing with children to teenagers.
