Who's Raising the Family? A Workbook for Parents and Children.
Delaine, John K.
This workbook, designed for parents who are concerned about the possibility of drug abusing children, supports the idea of a strong family and active, involved parenting. Strategies are suggested to improve the parent-child relationship, including a self-test to help parents consider their own attitudes and behavior, as well as suggestions for teaching children to develop a positive self-concept, express their feelings, make decisions, accept their responsibilities, and become assertive. Parenting methods are discussed including the family meeting, talking about and developing alternatives to drugs and alcohol, television, and coping with extreme parental stress. The first appendix offers help to those parents with alcohol or drug problems while the second lists answers children gave to questions about their families from an informal study of elementary and junior high students.
