Between Parent and Child

DESCRIPTION

Recommended by: Dear Prudence’s Emily Yoffe

Over the past thirty-five years, Between Parent and Child has helped millions of parents around the world strengthen their relationships with their children. Written by renowned psychologist Dr. Haim Ginott, this revolutionary book offered a straightforward prescription for empathetic yet disciplined child rearing and introduced new communication techniques that would change the way parents spoke with, and listened to, their children. Dr. Ginott’s innovative approach to parenting has influenced an entire generation of experts in the field, and now his methods can work for you, too.

In this revised edition, Dr. Alice Ginott, clinical psychologist and wife of the late Haim Ginott, and family relationship specialist Dr. H. Wallace Goddard usher this bestselling classic into the new century while retaining the book’s positive message and Haim Ginott’s warm, accessible voice. Based on the theory that parenting is a skill that can be learned, this indispensable handbook will show you how to:

  • Discipline without threats, bribes, sarcasm, and punishment 
  • Criticize without demeaning, praise without judging, and express anger without hurting 
  • Acknowledge rather than argue with children’s feelings, perceptions, and opinions 
  • Respond so that children will learn to trust and develop self-confidence
