Description
A guide for parents to raise mentally strong and resilient children offers advice for providing appropriate support, guidance, and encouragement to help children deal with challenges and flourish in their everyday lives.
Description
"Do you prevent your child from making mistakes? Do you give your child power so a over you? Do you parent out of guilt? If so, you're not alone. Every parent wants to provide their child with the best and safest future. But in today's increasingly complicated and scary world, many parents have taken things a step too far, mistakenly believing that giving their children the best chance at a successful life involves trying to shield them from pain and reality. From free-range parenting to helicopter parenting, many of today's popular parenting practices aren't allowing parents to teach children the skills they need to become mentally strong adults. In [this book], Amy Morin turns her focus to parents, revealing what not to do-- the unhealthy thoughts, behaviors, and feelings that hold adults back from raising mentally strong children. As a psychotherapist, an expert in family and teen therapy, and a foster parent, Morin has witnessed firsthand what works. When children have the skills they need to deal with challenges in their everyday lives, they flourish socially, emotionally, behaviorally, and academically. Morin demonstrates through easy-to-follow steps that with appropriate support, encouragement, and guidance from adults, children grow stronger and strive for a better, brighter future. Drawing on the insight she has gained from her experiences in her practice and her role as a foster parent, she combines case studies, practical tips, specific strategies, and proven exercises to help children of all ages-- from preschoolers to teenagers-- build the mental muscle and grit they need to develop into healthy, strong adults."--Jacket.
