Raising Resilient Children
Fostering Strength, Hope, and Optimism in your ChildBook - 2001
Resilience is what all parents want for their children because it embraces the ability of the child to deal more effectively with stress and pressure, to cope with everyday challenges, to bounce back from disappointments, adversity, and trauma, to develop clear and realistic goals, to solve problems, to relate comfortably with others, and to treat oneself and others with respect. This book integrates the latest research with the authors' clinical experience to show parents how to 1) identify and eliminate unintentionally negative parenting behaviors that undermine resilience and 2) substitute positive parenting behaviors that foster resilience. This book will define ten specific guideposts that the authors feel are key to fostering resilience.
