The Best Things Parents Do
Ideas & Insights From Real-world ParentsBook - 2004
Parents are doing a better job than they think they are. Author Susan Kohl has been a parent watcher for more than 30 years and she knows what parents do well. A kind of Mr. Rogers for parents, Susan Kohl's The Best Things Parents Do is a "best practices" book that parents will turn to again and again. Each chapter focuses on one topic and contains stories and vignettes from Kohl's personal experience, relevant statistics and psychological truths, strategies to use, and things to think about or actions to take. Kohl knows that when parents begin to pay attention to what they do well, they can do more of it channeling their children's energy into constructive endeavors, modeling positive behavior and discouraging negative behavior, and honoring their children's feelings as well as their own. The Best Things Parents Do is divided into four parts:1. The Best Attitudes Parents Hold: the best parents value progress.2. The Best Things Parents Do: from focusing on their children's feelings to seeing the opportunities in obstacles.3. The Best Things Parents Do for Themselves.4. The Best Things Parents Do for Each Other. Parents of children of any age will find relief and hope in The Best Things Parents Do.
