Description
Information
It's never been easy to raise children, and arguably it's even more difficult now. In this measured and humane book Dr Edward Hallowell offers a sensible strategy for raising happy children.

In his plan he has two primary goals for children:
1) that they develop a sense of "connection" with those around them; and
2) the development of a sense of mastery over one or more areas of their lives.
When parents guide their children towards these goals, the outcome will be good.

Other key issues he raises are:
- Don't push your child too hard in school - high academic achievement has no correlation with happy adult life
- Put your efforts into helping your child become good at something that will become a passionate involvement
- Don't try to rush your child's development
- Teach manners
