Description - Everyday Parenting Toolkit by Professor of Psychology Alan E Kazdin
Some of us are just naturals when it comes to parenting. But the rest of us wish that parenting came with operating instructions. Now it does. The result of thirty years of scientific research, Alan Kazdin's "The Everyday Parenting Toolkit" will guide you through every developmental stage from toddler to teenager and make you a more relaxed, confident, and competent parent. The rigorously tested strategies in this book will not only help change your child's behaviour, they will also decrease the stress in family relations, increase your joy in parenting, and help build a more nurturing home life that can directly improve children's mental and physical health and school success. You won t find abstract philosophy here. You'll see every point, every strategy, illustrated with real-life examples. From toilet training to teaching a child to accept no without a tantrum all the way up to struggles over mobile phones and curfew; from swiftly and gently correcting problem behaviours to fostering positive character qualities like respect for others, honesty, good friendships, or altruism, "The Everyday Parenting Toolkit" will surprise you time and again with counterintuitive advice that works. For years parents have been coming to Dr. Kazdin's Parenting Center at Yale University for help with the challenges, large and small, of child rearing. With the publication of this book, every reader can gain access to that advice and to parenting know-how that transforms families.
