Positive Parenting

Raising Children with Self-Esteem




An essential Guide for parents, explaining how to instil a sense of security and healthy self - regard in their children.

Positive Parenting is a parenting book with a difference. It does not tell you the practicalities of raising a child such as how to potty train, or when to introduce solids foods. Instead, it argues that what really matters is helping children to grow up feeling secure and good about themselves. Children -like adults- perform best when they feel good about themselves. This book will show you how to help your child develop: * positive self-esteem * self-confidence * self reliance Positive self-esteem is the best gift any parent can give their child. Knowing yourself and liking yourself is so often the key to success in life-affecting personal relationships, general motivation and success in work. Using key words like 'praise', 'play', 'touch' and 'talk', this book speaks to new and exerienced parents alike about what helps children develop and what blocks progress. Positive Parenting will empower and encourage, affirming that is okay to do it your way. No matter how difficult parenting may have been in the past, Positive Thinking offers a clear and simple way forward in the most influential relationship of all-that between parent and child
