Description

Bringing up children is one of the most difficult tasks in the world - and potentially one of the most rewarding. Loving and conveying love may seem to be instinctive skills, but they can also be worked on and improved, and it is now established that parenting is not necessarily an inherent talent, but is something that can be learned. Parents need no longer feel guilty, incompetent or useless when family relationships aren't what they should be - nor do children have to feel unloved, ignored or misunderstood. Good parenting skills, learned now, will be absorbed by the next generation, thus breaking the vicious cycle that can degenerate from toddler tantrums via teenage delinquency to adult crime and yet more unhappy families. In her work as a clinical psychologist with families from many cultures, Sue Jenner has experienced great success with the technique known to psychologists as the 'Parent/Child Game'. This is the first book to present this technique to a non-academic readership. The simple but incredibly effective principles of the 'Parent/Child Game' form the backbone of this guide, which is written with honesty, compassion and humour.
Drawing on many years of professional practice, as well as 'hands on' experience as a mother, stepmother and grandmother, Sue points the way to a happier life for both parents and children.
