Raising Resilient Children by Robert B. Brooks
Book DescriptionThis title provides effective, proven advice for raising strong kids. 'A uniquely wise guide for parents. Brooks and Goldstein help mothers and fathers to focus on their child's strengths, not on his or her weaknesses. The result is a happier, more resilient child. This book could really make a difference in the life of a family' -Michael Thompson, author of "Raising Cain". 'Obviously written by talented therapists, Raising Resilient Children is such a well-written, easy-to-read, and helpful book for parents' - T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., author of "The Irreducible Needs of Children". In this seminal parenting work, renowned psychologists Robert Brooks and Sam Goldstein explain why some kids are able to overcome overwhelming obstacles while others become victims of early experiences and environments. From this research they have developed effective strategies you can add to your parenting practice to prepare your children for the challenges of today's complicated, ever-changing world.
