Countering the Tiger Mother parenting style, this research-based, practical guide provides an excellent framework for raising competent and compassionate children. In an era of helicopter parents moms and dads who constantly hover over their children to monitor and manage their lives and our culture's focus on personal gain and corporate greed, there is great need for a parenting guide that outlines how to raise children who are well adjusted. A Practical Guide for Raising a Self-Directed and Caring Child fills that void. In response to Amy Chua's recent bestseller, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, psychologist Louis J. Lichtman, PhD, presents a compelling case for the notion that children will be more successful if they are self-directed rather than parent-controlled. Through anecdotes and research studies, Lichtman illustrates how to build a child's self-esteem and delves into how parenting styles and disciplinary practices influence a child's behavior and character. Lichtman also gives special attention to the topics of achievement, parenting during the adolescent years, and how family structure impacts children. In addition, Lichtman discusses how to avoid common parenting mistakes, issues to consider before deciding to become a parent, and how to give children the best possible start in life. Designed to help parents develop a set of guiding parenting principles, this guide is applicable to all situations and to children of all ages. A Practical Guide for Raising a Self-Directed and Caring Child offers a solid, comprehensive resource for today's parents.

This book describes research on the emotional communication between parents and children and its effect on the children's emotional development. Inspired by the work, and dedicated to the memory of Dr. Haim Ginott, it presents the results of initial exploratory work with meta-emotion--feelings about feelings. The initial study of meta-emotion generated some theory and made it possible to propose a research agenda. Clearly replication is necessary, and experiments are needed to test the path analytic models which have been developed from the authors' correlational data. The authors hope that other researchers will find these ideas interesting and stimulating, and will inspire investigation in this exciting new area of a family's emotional life.

""Everyone should Barbarafy," raves The New York Times! A life-changing program for streamlining everything that's weighing you down--from over-stuffed closets to overwhelming social calendars--courtesy of the media's go-to organizing guru: Barbara Reich. Mothers can feel like life is one neverending loop. Just when one problem or responsibility is handled, another one trips us up. But help is on the way: Barbara Reich has all the strategies necessary for staying ahead of the curve--and she's wrapped them up into four easy steps that can be applied to any organizing project. The keys to Barbara's success are simplicity and consistency. Room by room, she takes readers through the most problematic areas in the home--from the tornado-struck play area to the over-stuffed basement or storage unit. Barbara shows readers how to approach organizing in manageable bites--many of which can be dealt with in two hours or less. With each organizing project, she teaches readers how to apply the four steps--1) purge, 2) design, 3) organize, and 4) maintain. And she also reveals how to solve organizing problems that may pop up in the future--from knowing when and how to keep financial papers to how to digitally organize the family's photographs. As the mother of twelve-year-old twins, Barbara offers tips for crazed moms as only a mother could. Combining the humor of a sympathetic friend, and the no-nonsense advice of a true type-A personality, Reich offers clever, appealing solutions that are genuinely achievable for everyone"--

Bestselling author and New York Times family columnist Bruce Feiler found himself squeezed between caring for ageing parents and raising his children. So he set out on a three-year journey to find the smartest ideas and the most cutting-edge research about families of all varieties, novel solutions to make his own family happier. Instead of the usual psychologists and family 'experts', he sought out the most creative minds - from Silicon Valley to the set of Modern Family, from top negotiators to the army - and asked them what team-building exercises and problem-solving techniques they use. Feiler then tested these ideas with his wife and kids. The result is a fun, completely original look at how families can draw closer together. Felier's life-changing discoveries include a radical plan to reshape your family in twenty minutes a week, Warren Buffett's guide for setting an allowance, and the Harvard handbook for resolving conflict. The Secrets of Happy Families is a timely, counterintuitive book that answers the questions countless parents are asking: how do we manage the chaos of our lives? How do we teach our kids values? How do we make our family happier? Written in a charming, accessible style, The Secrets of Happy Families is smart, funny and fresh, and will forever change how your family lives every day.

What about the Children

'What about the children?' -- a concern commonly expressed about children raised by lesbian and gay parents -- is here addressed through the life stories of twenty sons and daughters of lesbians or gay men. With a combination of humour and serious reflection, they examine the effect of their upbringing on their adult lives and place the sexuality of their parents in perspective. Pejorative and stereotypical representations of lesbian and gay parents are firmly rejected in these stories, while associated problems are realistically and sensitively explored. At the core of the book is the belief that parents cannot be responsible for other people's bigotry, but they must aim to equip their children with the moral fortitude and integrity to deal with the prejudice and injustice that they may encounter in their lives. Some of the interviewees identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual, most identify as heterosexual. They are aged from eleven to sixty-six and vary in class and race. Their stories are supported by an analysis of recent research on the children of lesbians and gay men, as well as consideration of the issues raised by interviewees: living with prejudice, what children need from parents, influences on sexuality and who counts as family. This book is essential reading for lesbian and gay people contemplating parenthood, for children raised in lesbian and gay families, for childcare professionals and anyone who wants to understand the diversity of today's families.

While it is true that children from military families live unique and interesting lives, it is also true that they face many challenges and special circumstances that civilian children and families dont experience. These can include gaps in school attendance and learning due to frequent moves, being separated from a parent who has been deployed, and a sense of isolation in the midst of a civilian community. This unique guide provides parents with the information they need to choose a welcoming school or daycare program and suggests steps they can take to advocate for their children. It also highlights the types of questions parents should ask about how their children are faring socially, emotionally, and academically, such as: What can I do to help my child make a smooth transition to a new school? How can I support my child academically? What resources or staff does my school have to meet the needs of military children?
