A provocative guide to the hidden dangers of “parentspeak”—those seemingly innocent phrases parents use when speaking to their young children. Imagine if every time you praise your child with “Good job!” you’re actually doing harm? Or that urging a child to say “Can you say thank you?” is exactly the wrong way to go about teaching manners? Jennifer Lehr is a smart, funny, and fearless writer who “takes everything you thought you knew about parenting and turns it on its ear” (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Backing up her lively writing and arguments with research from psychologists, educators, and organizations like Alfie Kohn, Thomas Gordon, and R.I.E. (Resources for Infant Educarers), Ms. Lehr offers a conscious approach to parenting based on respect and love for the child as an individual.

Genre: Family & Relationships

"Trust me. This is the only baby book you'll ever need! It's amazing, heartwarming, and completely user-friendly. Just add your heart!" --Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom Attached at the Heart offers readers practical parenting advice for the modern age. In its most basic form, "attachment parenting" is instinctive. A crying baby is comforted and kept close to parents for protection. If hungry, he or she is breastfed. And while it is understood that there is no such thing as perfect parenting, research suggests that there is a strong correlation between a heightened sense of respect, empathy, and affection in those children raised the "attachment parenting" way. In this controversial book, readers will gain much needed insight into childrearing while learning to trust the intuitive knowledge of their child, ultimately building a strong foundation that will strengthen the parent-child bond. Using the Eight Principles of Parenting, readers will learn: How to prepare for baby before birth Why breastfeeding is a must for busy moms When to start feeding solid food How to respond to temper tantrums Sleeping safety guidelines and the benefits of cosleeping Tips for short separation How to practice positive discipline and its rewards Tips for finding and maintaining balance The benefits of using a baby sling and implementing infant massage Tips on dealing with criticism from those opposed or unfamiliar with AP style The dangers surrounding traditional discipline styles of parenting Contrary to popular belief, "attachment parenting" has been practiced in one form or another since recorded history. Over the years, it had been slowly replaced by a more detached parenting style—a style that is now believed by experts to be a lead contributing factor to suicide, depression, and violence. The concept of "attachment parenting"—a term originally coined by parenting experts William and Martha Sears—has increasingly been validated by research in many fields of study, such as child development, psychology, and neuroscience. Also known as "conscious parenting," "natural parenting," "compassionate parenting," or "empathic parenting," its goal is to stimulate optimal child development. While many attachment-parenting recommendations likely counter popular societal beliefs, authors Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker are quick to point out that the benefits outweigh the backlash of criticism that advocates of detached parenting may impose.

The Peacemaker Parent Solving Problems for Today Teaching Independence for a Lifetime

Author: Lorraine Esposito
Publisher: Edits Made Easy LLC - DBA E
ISBN: 9780984295326
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Family & Relationships

Written with a mid-western tone and a commonsense conversational style, The Peacemaker Parent shows parents how to end the struggle over simple chores and transition their children into independence. In the words of Psychiatrist Candida Fink, M.D., "This technique is based on the soundest principles of child development and learning science." Not to worry, though: The science is made easy to understand and the analogies and personal stories relate it all to real life. The already witty and engaging text is lightened with 200 off-set quotes that break up the manuscript with a wonderful combination of humor and deep insight. Following an innovative technique, The Peacemaker Parent gives parents a step-by-step practical method for bringing their theoretical goals into the realm of real-life everyday squabbles over homework, tooth brushing, and breakfast eating. No more idealistic concepts without the practical steps needed for application and results! Best of all, the book's method reaches far beyond the tasks of a single day. Teaching children personal responsibility and problem-solving, it gives parents the knowledge and tools they need to raise children who will grow into capable, resourceful, responsible adults. It starts out creating a peaceful morning and ends up creating a peaceful lifetime for the child who learns to face life's challenges with confidence and independence. Drawing on the theories of B.F. Skinner and Abraham Maslow (among others), The Peacemaker Parent brilliantly combines trusted science with a mother's common sense. The result is the perfect tool for any parent with children ages 2 to 12 who wants to teach her child more than how to read and color in the lines.
