Successful Parenting: Self-Esteem, Communication, and Discipline. Workbook.
Taylor, Barbara Lynn
Parenting is the toughest job there is, and yet, there is very little training. Most parent their children by the methods their parents used. Parenting involves skills that must be learned. Even among good parents there is always room for improvement. This book is for persons who want to be better a parent or guardian. In addition to introductory materials and several appendices, the book is divided into three parts. Each part is filled with worksheets and activities to guide reflection, as well as pertinent advice. Topics covered in part one, "Self-Esteem is the Key," are: the importance of high self-esteem; parents damage self-esteem in their children; and, ways to build your child's self-esteem. Part two, "Communication is Crucial," covers: communication is important; and improving communication with your children. Finally, topics covered in part three, "Discipline Makes the Difference", are: why discipline is important; some suggestions on how to discipline children; parenting styles; some situations for you to try. Appendices are: Ten Suggestions for Enhancing the Self-Esteem of Your Children; Eight Suggestions for Improving Communication with Your Children; Ten Suggestion for Disciplining Your Children; and Charts You Can Use in Disciplining Your Children.
