Parenting is the most important, terrifying and rewarding job you’ll ever have. For better or worse, most of us learn how to do this job from our parents. But what if the example your parents set is not something you want to follow?
In A Choice Theory Psychology Guide to Parenting, international child expert Dr. Nancy Buck offers readers a new and far more effective way to parent while maintaining a loving relationship with their sons and daughters. Parents and children have different agendas, children push for freedom while parents pull for safety. This push-pull relationship between parents and children starts at birth, and continues throughout childhood, adolescence and early adulthood. Rather than relying on the typical controlling, punishing, and relationship-destroying attempts to dominate children, Choice Theory psychology teaches you to follow the instruction manual you and your offspring are born with. The result is happy, responsible children who want to maintain loving relationships with their parents. Great parents who follow this instruction manual raise great children.
