Raising Good Humans by Hunter Clarke-Fields Pdf

“A wise and fresh approach to mindful parenting.” —Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance A kinder, more compassionate world starts with kind and compassionate kids. In Raising Good Humans, you’ll find powerful and practical strategies to break free from “reactive parenting” habits and raise kind, cooperative, and confident kids. Whether you’re running late for school, trying to get your child to eat their vegetables, or dealing with an epic meltdown in the checkout line at a grocery store—being a parent is hard work! And, as parents, many of us react in times of stress without thinking—often by yelling. But what if, instead of always reacting on autopilot, you could respond thoughtfully in those moments, keep your cool, and get from A to B on time and in one piece? With this book, you’ll find powerful mindfulness skills for calming your own stress response when difficult emotions arise. You’ll also discover strategies for cultivating respectful communication, effective conflict resolution, and reflective listening. In the process, you’ll learn to examine your own unhelpful patterns and ingrained reactions that reflect the generational habits shaped by your parents, so you can break the cycle and respond to your children in more skillful ways. When children experience a parent reacting with kindness and patience, they learn to act with kindness as well—thereby altering generational patterns for a kinder, more compassionate future. With this essential guide, you’ll see how changing your own “autopilot reactions” can create a lasting positive impact, not just for your kids, but for generations to come. An essential, must-read for all parents—now more than ever. “To raise the children we hope to raise, we have to learn to become the person we hoped to be…. This wonderful book will help you handle the ride.” —KJ Dell’Antonia, author of How to Be a Happier Parent “Hunter Clarke-Fields shares her wisdom and personal experience to help parents create peaceful families.” —Joanna Faber and Julie King, coauthors of How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen

Every Parent Should Read This Book by Ben Brooks Pdf

'AN INDISPENSABLE USER'S GUIDE TO ADOLESCENTS.. THE MOST REASSURING THING ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THAT IT'S SO GOOD' Daily Mail 'THE BOOK TO READ' The Times 'EVERY PARENT SHOULD READ THIS BOOK' Clover Stroud 'A MUST-READ FOR THOSE WITH TEENAGE KIDS' Candice Brathwaite ------------ A GUIDE TO TEENAGERS FROM THIS CENTURY - FOR PARENTS FROM THE LAST CENTURY Written from a teenager's perspective, this is a unique field guide for parents about the secret lives of 21st century adolescents - from mental health to self-harm, from drugs to sexting - and how you can help them and yourself through these turbulent years without losing their trust. Things They Don't Want You To Know is a look at modern life through the eyes of a teenager, by someone who recently graduated from that club. Along the way, Brooks takes readers on a tour of the websites that most parenting manuals would rather pretend don't exist. Yet this is the stuff your kids are all over, on a daily basis. There is porn, there are hallucinogens, there is cyberbullying and suicidal ideation. Brooks' point is that to remain completely unaware of their existence can mean that as a parent, you end up getting blindsided. And being blindsided means you won't know what to say and how to say it when things go wrong. You'll be surprised, shocked but you'll also be reassured. This book will help you to understand and support your kids. They won't thank you, but they might hate you less.

The Real Purpose of Parenting by Philip Dembo Pdf

"Dr Philip Dembo presents in his new book, THE PARENT COACH, a model of parenting that finally addresses our nations ongoing crisis...We are raising children with little or no character or conscience. The generations of young people have little work ethic, little worry about how their actions affect others, and seem to want it all with little sacrifice. The book looks at the current parenting strategies as a contributor to the underdevelopment of children today. Parents, in all their effort to gain compliance from their children, are actually interfering with their development. What do we do now? How do we undo what we have been doing? THE PARENT COACH gives us a model that links the development of a child's ""true voice"" with his/her actual experience to the strategies of parents and their important role in ""coaching"" their child's journey through their own growth.

How Parents Can Raise Resilient Children by Frank Dixon Pdf

Tired of tantrums and tears? Discover a more mindful, attentive, and adaptive parenting style that instills a lifelong habit of resilience and confidence in your child. Being a parent isn't easy. From the ear-splitting temper tantrums of the terrible twos to the heart-stopping antics of elder siblings who should know better, sometimes the family home can feel more like a psychological battleground with a masterful manipulator of your emotions! One thing is for sure: a child's life is one of exploration, discovery, and wonder. But between those wondrous moments, even the most cautious of children will suffer the consequences of their youthful trial and error. As a parent, it's hard to say "no" to an eager little face that you love - and it only gets harder when resisting your natural, hard-wired impulse to rush in and save them from their terrible decisions. Does this make you a bad parent? Of course not: you are, like your children, a human trying to make sense of the world - and you alone have the power and responsibility to show them the best path forward. But Just Where Do You Draw the Line Between Liberty and Discipline? How Parents Can Raise Resilient Children is a new, step-by-step guide that shows parents how to navigate the precarious tightrope of raising independent, resilient, and honest children. Taking inspiration from some of the latest research in child development studies, Frank Dixon lifts the lid on just why kids will be kids and how parents can build an empathic, nourishing, and stable relationship with their children based on empowering behavior mentorship. Building on a foundation of 7 'C's - competence, confidence, connection, character, contribution, coping, and control - Dixon offers an easy-to-follow strategy that frazzled parents can immediately put into action. Childish Mistakes Are the Building Blocks of Adult Success How Parents Can Raise Resilient Children reveals seven core areas of parenting where you can act as a role model when dealing with setbacks and upsets. Through exploring these 7 'C's with examples, this book acts as a handbook for resilience parenting. With its easy-to-understand style, this guide offers step-by-step guidance to show parents how they can effectively: Foster the brilliant imagination of the young mind with strategic use of praise and providing resources to enable the development of innate skills and talents Understand the way the human brain is wired in childhood - and how to discipline mistakes with empathy and understanding rather than punishment Nourish and grow your relationship with your child as a trusted supporter and advisor through childhood and adulthood, empowering both sides with love Demonstrate desired behaviors when faced with hardships through your own actions and thought processes to give your child a powerful emotional toolkit Know when to intervene and how to intervene when mistakes and failures happen - and how to turn any situation into a powerful learning moment Make friends and develop strong bonds with peers with an ability to lead and influence through their character Develop an optimistic, cheerful approach to life where failure isn't a disaster but merely a challenge that can be resolved with creative problem-solving Click the 'Buy Now' button today to order How Parents Can Raise Resilient Children.
