Take the worry out of parenting…
days, parenthood and anxiety seem to go hand in hand,
especially given that it’s harder than ever to raise happy,
well-adjusted kids in our complicated world. And all parents
long to figure out just who their child will become when he
or she grows up. But with websites, media, and other parents
providing an endless stream of advice about how to raise a
perfect and perfectly happy child, how can you really know
whom to trust?
Susan Engel draws on her years of
experience as a developmental psychologist, educator, and
mother to help parents stop worrying about their young
children’s future and stop trying to control their formative
years. Offering an intriguing new way of thinking about
child development, she uses both personal and professional
research to identify problematic behaviors that require
intervention and gives reassurance about those that don’t.
Unlike many parenting experts, Engel encourages perspective
and acceptance: rambunctious children will calm down as they
find activities to absorb their intellectual energy;
similarly, as shy kids grow, they will learn how to reach
out to others on a one-to-one level.
straightforward guidance about issues of major concern for
parents—happiness, intelligence, love, and morality—while
blending stories about real children with relevant and
up-to-the-minute social and clinical research. This
absorbing narrative is an indispensable tool that will
restore your sanity, help you sleep better, and put the joy
back in child-raising.
