Effective, proven advice for raising strong kids
"A uniquely wise guide for parents. Brooks and Goldstein help mothers and fathers to focus on their child's strengths, not on his or her weaknesses. The result is a happier, more resilient child. This book could really make a difference in the life of a family."
--Michael Thompson, author of Raising Cain
"Obviously written by talented therapists, Raising Resilient Children is such a well-written, easy-to-read, and helpful book for parents."
--T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., author of The Irreducible Needs of Children
In this seminal parenting work, renowned psychologists Robert Brooks and Sam Goldstein explain why some kids are able to overcome overwhelming obstacles while others become victims of early experiences and environments. From this research they have developed effective strategies you can add to your parenting practice to prepare your children for the challenges of today's complicated, ever-changing world.

This is a 9-week course covering: (1) Teaching and conveying empathy; (2) re-writing negative scripts; (3) Discplining in ways that promote self-discipline and growth; (4) Making decisions, solving problems; (5) loving children in ways that help them feel special and appreciated; (6) learning from mistakes; (7) Expecting success, "islands of competence"; (8) hope and courage.
It is accompanied by a video tape (not available from Amazon.com) but which would be good for persons planning parent groups or in-service for teachers.
The age-group that the authors write about is children, but with some modifications (especially with discipline) it could be applied to adolescents.
This book is an easy beginning to the practical aspects of resilience education. It is graphically good looking and substantively good.
I have used some of the techniques described in this book and found them to be effective with my kids.
I highly recommend this book for any parent looking for ways to reach their children.
