Renowned child psychologists make sense of complicated research on resilience
In the tradition of such important books as Raising Ophelia and Emotional Intelligence, Raising Resilient Children is an engaging and wise work that will revolutionize parenting.
In this much-anticipated work, two renowned child psychologists synthesize a large body of scientific literature on resilience, explaining why some kids are able to overcome overwhelming obstacles while others easily become victims of early experiences and environments.
With real-life anecdotes from their own practices, the authors explain how many parents, despite their best intentions, unwittingly undermine their children's capacity for resilience. Brooks and Goldenstein offer effective strategies for identifying and eliminating these "negative scripts."
This inspiring guide offers invaluable advice for parents of all children facing pressures and challenges in today's complicated world.
