For Parents' Sake: A Survival Kit for Parents and Kids. Volume II: Tips for Parents.
Butchee, Brenda, Ed.; And Others
Developed by the Oklahoma State Department of Health, this booklet is the second in a series that provides tips that parents can use to help their children grow. The booklet is divided into three sections. The first section, "Getting Along as a Person," discusses a child's self-esteem, self-concept, and self-control, and suggests ways for parents to help their children feel good about themselves. This section also focuses on the consequences of behavior and on the concept of time out as a way to remove children from a situation until they can control their behavior. The second section, "Getting Along as a Family," addresses family problem solving, family communication, siblings, family routines, and discipline in public places. The final section, "Getting along with Others," discusses getting along with friends and getting along at school, and suggests ways to handle a child who physically hurts another child. An appendix provides a list of additional resources on parenting and child development, parent support groups, and other community resources. (MM)
