About Relationship Parenting: Sometimes parents must pull rank and set down non-negotiable expectations and rules. However, if your child frequently misbehaves, it's time to evaluate your family's activities and home life. So many times, poor discipline is blamed for "problem" children, but the problems often originate when a child's needs are not met. During a child's life, the relationship his parents create with him should be based on bonding. Some call this process attachment parenting. It is actually Relationship Parenting. About the Author: Rick Sudsberry began his counseling work: after graduation from the University of Illinois at Springfield. Since 1972 he has provided help to individuals, couples and families. He has been married for 32 years and has two adult sons, Ryan and Chad. He has: Counseled for 29 years.

Simplicity Parenting offers inspiration, ideas, and a blueprint for change: • Streamline your home environment.

Publisher: Ballantine Books
Today’s busier, faster society is waging an undeclared war on childhood. With too much stuff, too many choices, and too little time, children can become anxious, have trouble with friends and school, or even be diagnosed with behavioral problems. Now internationally renowned family consultant Kim John Payne helps parents reclaim for their children the space and freedom that all kids need for their attention to deepen and their individuality to flourish. Simplicity Parenting offers inspiration, ideas, and a blueprint for change: • Streamline your home environment. Reduce the amount of toys, books, and clutter—as well as the lights, sounds, and general sensory overload. • Establish rhythms and rituals. Discover ways to ease daily tensions, create battle-free mealtimes and bedtimes, and tell if your child is overwhelmed. • Schedule a break in the schedule. Establish intervals of calm and connection in your child’s daily torrent of constant doing. • Scale back on media and parental involvement. Manage your children’s “screen time” to limit the endless deluge of information and stimulation. A manifesto for protecting the grace of childhood, Simplicity Parenting is an eloquent guide to bringing new rhythms to bear on the lifelong art of raising children.

Raising A Successful Child (The Manual) gets to the heart of what every parent needs to know to have a warm, loving, emotionally healthy relationship with their baby and to raise a happy, healthy, secure child. Based on past successful parenting practices and even more excitingly on fairly recent research findings that point to new directions in parenting, this book provides in clear and simple language the tools for raising successful children. The typical extremes of parenting books alternate between extremes of overparenting and more recently, "tough-parenting." As always, the pendulum swings from one extreme to the other, while the real answers and healthy approaches to parenting reside in the healthy valley between these extremes. Raising A Successful Child (The Manual) introduces parents to the idea of a balanced life for a child--work and play are equally important at all stages of development. The Manual further provides an easy to follow road map to help both child and parent develope a healthy, loving, and, yes, successful life. Exploring all the things that can go wrong, reading about alarmist sentiments or vignettes of struggling parents does little to build confidence in parents. Rather than focusing on psychiatric diagnoses, Raising a successful Child (The Manual) departs from this trend and offers parents a concise, clearly written guide on the art of parenting. The Manual tempers the hubbub of so many prescriptions and "how-to's" and gently guides parents to the most essential ingredient---the relationship between them and their child. As such, The Manual inspires different sorts of questions than are commonly seen in parenting books. Rather than, "How can I make my child stop having tantrums?" or "How can I make my child perform better in school?," new questions arise: "How can I builde a relationship with my child that's emotionally healthy and helps my child move from a state of absolute dependance to successful independance?" Raising A Successful Child (The Manual) makes it clear that the most urgent demand upon parents is to be with their children. Multiple suggestions are offered to help parents develope a working plan. An essential component in this process is significant self-awareness on the part of parents with regard to their own inherited ideas about child- rearing, Equipped with the information in this book, parents can weigh the assumptions they've acquired from their families, social networks, and the media against the facts and develope a parenting plan they can feel secure with. Raising A Successful Child ( The Manual) lays the groundwork for everything that is vital to the parent-child relationchip. It is a book written for parents who are looking for answers amidst the clutter of extremes.

Studies in the 1950s revealed that young children hospitalized without their parents respond first by crying for them, then by showing signs of despair, and finally by emotionally detaching from the parents and acting indifferent to their absence. This detachment is hard to repair and highly detrimental to a child's development-most children who feel they cannot rely on their parents grow up to become more emotionally insecure and less self-assured than their peers. The Attachment Connection sorts out the facts from the fiction about parent-child attachment and shows how paying attention to the emotional needs of your child, particularly during the first five years of development, can help him or her grow up happy, secure, and confident. You'll discover how your child's brain is developing at each stage of growth and learn to use reasonable, easy-to-implement guidelines based on sound science to foster secure attachment, healthy social skills, and emotional regulation in your child.

This invaluable guide is designed to help parents and counselors build self-esteem in children from infancy through adolescence, fortifying them with a healthy sense of self-esteem for the rest of their lives. Whereas some professionals are content to teach parents about building only outer self-esteem, as in parents unconditionally praising the children, Dr. Owens believes it is also essential to bolster a child's inner self-esteem. This way a child feels good from within, knows objectively that he's doing a good job, and is not solely dependent on the praise of others. While Dr. Owens believes strongly that parents must give children unconditional love, she is well aware that the world can be a harsh and difficult place. Therefore, she shows that the best gift a parent can give one's children is the tools to acquire the skills and behavior that will enable them to feel good about themselves - from within. This unique book imparts vital information on how parents can instill a sense of pride in their child each step of the way as the child's mind grows in perception and logic. Dr. Owens explains what behavior to expect from children at each developmental stage. She also supplies ample questionnaires so parents can determine the state of their children's sense of self-esteem. Most important, she wisely recognizes the needs of special groups of children. She thus offers specific advice for boosting the self-esteem of children who are shy, aggressive, unpopular, learning disabled, or gifted, as well as adopted children, only children, and children of working mothers, divorced parents, step-families, single parents, and same-sex parents.
