Learn to avoid confrontations with young people and the rifts that often result from “laying down the law”. In Bring Out the Best in Your Child,
Patrick J. Jeske shows parents how to encouragage their children to actively obey the house rules instead of rebelling against them. By making youths responsible for their choices and permitting them to accept the consequences of bad decisions, parents will see dramatic improvement in their children’s behavior.
Bring Out the Best in Your Child focuses on several methods for fostering children’s innate drive to succeed. The author, a practicing child psychologist, teaches parents how to recognize and fulfill their offspring’s basic needs for love, structure, and excitement. Firmly and lovingly, parents can encourage their children to dream actively and to establish the goals that will let them realize those dreams.
Instilling self-reliance and self-confidence, and diminishing the fear of failure are other crucial factors in encouraging a child’s maximum potential. This book will facilitate the development of those qualities as well as enhance young people’s chances for success by helping them control laziness and stubbornness.
Jeske offers numerous personal examples and case histories to illustrate each point, providing concrete suggestions for effective discipline, rewards, and family harmony. Finding contentment, he observes, requires long-term commitment and hard work. Children must often overcome natural tendencies towards selfishness, relative values, and worrying. With Bring Out the Best in Your Child, parents can help their sons and daughters look to a bright, productive future.
