What Your Child Needs From You delivers concrete strategies to help parents build meaningful relationships with their children. The single most important thing children need in order to grow into happy, resilient adults, is for someone in their lives to be consistently emotionally available to them.
What Your Child Needs From You outlines methods through which parents can cultivate emotional availability with their children, and so learn to really understand them. Making use of emotional availability and understanding promotes a different, more effective comprehension of discipline within families, which allows parents to teach children positive ways to act rather than punishing them using more punitive means.
Families who integrate the principles described in What Your Child Needs From You into their everyday lives will be more peaceful, harmonious and functional, and will raise children who grow into kind and compassionate adults.
