From award-winning author Ken Ginsburg comes this new work
which explores an innovative idea in parenting: "The
Lighthouse Parenting Strategy."
Dr. Ginsburg's previous work includes "Building Resilience
in Children and Teens" which offers a comprehensive overview
of strategies to build resilience and promote the kind of
traits that lead to our children becoming happy, successful
This book offers a deeper dive into two fundamental
questions over which parents struggle:
1) How do I give my child the unconditional love he needs to
thrive, while also holding him to high expectations? and 2)
How do I protect my child while also letting her learn
"We should be like lighthouses for our children; beacons of
light on a stable shoreline from which they can safely
navigate the world. We must make certain they don't crash
against the rocks, but trust they have the capacity to learn
to ride the waves on their own."
This book is rooted in proven concepts from the positive
youth development and resilience frameworks and combines new
research with expert opinion to help parents consider how to
approach these toughest of questions.
This book is co-written by Dr. Ginsburg's two teenaged
daughters, Ilana and Talia Ginsburg, and perspectives from
over 500 teens are also part of this groundbreaking work.
