The Attachment Connection

Studies in the 1950s revealed that young children hospitalized without their parents respond first by crying for them, then by showing signs of despair, and finally by emotionally detaching from the parents and acting indifferent to their absence. This detachment is hard to repair and highly detrimental to a child's development-most children who feel they cannot rely on their parents grow up to become more emotionally insecure and less self-assured than their peers. The Attachment Connection sorts out the facts from the fiction about parent-child attachment and shows how paying attention to the emotional needs of your child, particularly during the first five years of development, can help him or her grow up happy, secure, and confident. You'll discover how your child's brain is developing at each stage of growth and learn to use reasonable, easy-to-implement guidelines based on sound science to foster secure attachment, healthy social skills, and emotional regulation in your child.

Countering the Tiger Mother parenting style, this research-based, practical guide provides an excellent framework for raising competent and compassionate children. In an era of helicopter parents moms and dads who constantly hover over their children to monitor and manage their lives and our culture's focus on personal gain and corporate greed, there is great need for a parenting guide that outlines how to raise children who are well adjusted. A Practical Guide for Raising a Self-Directed and Caring Child fills that void. In response to Amy Chua's recent bestseller, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, psychologist Louis J. Lichtman, PhD, presents a compelling case for the notion that children will be more successful if they are self-directed rather than parent-controlled. Through anecdotes and research studies, Lichtman illustrates how to build a child's self-esteem and delves into how parenting styles and disciplinary practices influence a child's behavior and character. Lichtman also gives special attention to the topics of achievement, parenting during the adolescent years, and how family structure impacts children. In addition, Lichtman discusses how to avoid common parenting mistakes, issues to consider before deciding to become a parent, and how to give children the best possible start in life. Designed to help parents develop a set of guiding parenting principles, this guide is applicable to all situations and to children of all ages. A Practical Guide for Raising a Self-Directed and Caring Child offers a solid, comprehensive resource for today's parents.
