Linda S. Budd about this book: Parenting today is too often a reaction to a child's misbehavior; the parenting goal is missing. When the mission is clear and the relationship with the child is on course, parents can understand their child and make effective parenting choices. The four developmental channels are: security, protection, importance and respect. By successfully navigating these channels with your child, you can be assured that he or she will grow into a competent, caring and contributing adult.
In today's society parents are so busy they are often reacting only to the problem of the day with their child. This book helps the parents get back on course, learning to think in a big picture way for how they want their child to grow. It is based upon over 35 years of experience as a psychologist and parenting specialist. The stories are real and many parents recognize themselves and discover ways to steer their parenting boat back into a channel of success for their child.
