Respectful Parenting: From Birth through the Terrific Twos.
Developed through 20 years of family therapy practice advocating a child-centered approach to parenting, this book presents a balanced approach to child rearing that recognizes the feelings and needs of both parents and children while observing that children also need boundaries and discipline to feel safe and secure, guidance on the choices they make, and the capacity to adapt successfully to the world and its demands. Topics covered in the book include nursing, spoiling, learning styles, tantrums, discipline, and dealing with life changes. Practical parenting tips and anecdotes from parents are included. (HTH)
