Having a great kid is not a matter of good luck. Loving and committed parents have to teach their children traits such as morality and empathy.
The way you raise your child from infancy through adolescence determines his or her success in interacting with people and dealing with life situations. Every parent wants confident, sensitive, patient and morally sound children. But human beings are not born with these qualities; parents and caregivers are responsible for teaching children about them. Dr. Stanley Greenspan, an authority on infant and child development, describes each of 10 essential traits he believes children need, and advises parents how to instill and encourage them in their kids. His contentions are backed up by 30 years of practical experience. getAbstract recommends this book to parents who are looking for a guide through the complexities of child rearing.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to help your child develop 10 of the most important personality traits;
- Why allowing children to express all emotions is important; and
- Why parents or guardians – not society – are responsible for instilling values in their children.
