Pensoneau, Bill; And Others
The second of two booklets for Ponca parents, this document identifies seven skills that may be useful in building children's competence and confidence so that they may choose for themselves what their identity and character will be. Suggested advice includes identification with role models; use of the Socratic Method; identification with and responsibility for family processes; development of faith in personal ability; development of intrapersonal, interpersonal, and situational skills; and development of good judgment. A conversation with a Ponca elder on childrearing in the past concludes the booklet. (ERB)
