Tips for Parents. Un Granito De Arena. Demonstration Reading Program.
Suggestions about parenting and family relationships are presented in two booklets, one in English and one in Spanish. The Spanish booklet follows roughly the plan of the English booklet, but has been simplified. The booklet begins with a discussion of a philosophy of parenting, examining the importance of self-concept and the formation of values formed in the family context. Ways to help children develop a positive self-image are discussed, and an action plan is emphasized. Resources are provided which will help parents in developing and implementing an action plan. These include tips for "getting it together," a feelings display, an instrument to help children determine what they value, ten principles of behavior change, objectives of effective parenting, and a list for identifying roadblocks to good communication. A counseling bibliography is included. (RM)
