This interactive workbook is designed to help you succeed in parenting. Thomas Paris and Eileen Paris introduce the simple yet powerful concept of conscious parenting, a system that allows you to see the "messages" - both good and bad - you learned as a child and what messages you are now passing on to your children.
By answering the questions and studying your family patterns and child behaviors in this book you will be able to:
- Identify what may have been missing between you and your parents, and find out whether your child is missing it, too
- Get to the bottom of family myths and end family legacies - including role-playing and sexual stereotypes
- Understand what bonding with your child really means, and how to make it a lifelong process
- Handle your own anger
- Set boundaries without becoming too rigid
This wise, interactive manual for parents helps you to become the parent you always wanted to be.
