In Unlocking Parental Intelligence, long-experienced psychoanalyst, Laurie Hollman, PhD, challenges parents to become meaning-makers. Believing parents' potential to understand their child's misbehaviors is vastly underestimated, Hollman tackles the idea that when parents reach into their own knowledge of their children, they discover misbehaviors are not only meaningful, but a catalyst to change. Dr. Hollman relates her five-step road map to Parental Intelligence through lively, compassionate story-telling. This accessible read is a serious, rewarding book that enlightens, uplifts, and relieves while cultivating critical thinking on the part of parents and children as they wrestle with the common, sometimes desperate vexations of family life.

How can you discover your children's unique talents? And how can you use your own talents and strengths to be the most effective and supportive parent possible? Strengths Based Parenting addresses these and other questions on parents' minds. But unlike many parenting books, Strengths Based Parenting focuses on identifying and understanding what your children are naturally good at and where they thrive -- not on their weaknesses. The book also helps you uncover your own innate talents and effectively apply them to your individual parenting style. You'll find stories, examples and practical advice as well as a strengths assessment access code for parents and one for kids, so you can take the first step to discovering your innate talents and those of your children. Grounded in decades of Gallup research on strengths psychology -- as highlighted in Gallup's StrengthsFinder 2.0, which has sold nearly 5 million copies to date -- Strengths Based Parenting shows you how to uncover your kids' top talents and your own.

A must-read for every parent who wants to raise smart, emotionally stable, responsible, stress-proof kids! Stress is rising alarmingly in our children, both at school and at home.

Most importantly, it offers simple but effective steps that parents can take to minimise the impact of stress at home and at school. These include tools from the author’s ‘Restorative Parenting Toolbox’, empowering parents with the necessary skills to: • resolve behaviour issues • deal with temper tantrums • resolve sibling rivalries • handle bullying • cope with teenagers testing their independence • navigate the challenges posed by the virtual world, and • provide firm, effective guidance when problems arise. ‘A compelling, practical and informative guide for every parent …’ — Rollin McCraty PhD, Institute of HeartMath

The latest research on child development may hold the key to the parenting of the future. Combining the expertise of its author – a celebrated expert in parent-infant mental health and mother of two – with the latest findings in gene-by-environment interactions, epigenetics, behavioural science, and attachment theory, Scientific Parenting describes how children’s genes determine their sensitivity to good or bad parenting, how environmental cues can switch critical genes on or off, and how addictive tendencies and mental health problems can become hardwired into the human brain. The book traces conditions as diverse as heart disease, obesity, and depression to their origins in early childhood. It brings readers to the frontier of developmental research, unlocking the fascinating scientific discoveries currently hidden away in academic tomes and scholarly journals. Above all, Scientific Parenting explains why parenting really matters and how parents’ smallest actions can transform their children’s lives.

How we raise young children is one of today's most highly personalized and sharply politicized issues, in part because each of us can claim some level of "expertise." The debate has intensified as discoveries about our development-in the womb and in the first months and years-have reached the popular media. How can we use our burgeoning knowledge to assure the well-being of all young children, for their own sake as well as for the sake of our nation? Drawing from new findings, this book presents important conclusions about nature-versus-nurture, the impact of being born into a working family, the effect of politics on programs for children, the costs and benefits of intervention, and other issues. The committee issues a series of challenges to decision makers regarding the quality of child care, issues of racial and ethnic diversity, the integration of children's cognitive and emotional development, and more. Authoritative yet accessible, From Neurons to Neighborhoods presents the evidence about "brain wiring" and how kids learn to speak, think, and regulate their behavior. It examines the effect of the climate-family, child care, community-within which the child grows.

Unlock your children’s potential by helping them build their strengths. This game-changing book shows us the extraordinary results of focusing on our children’s strengths rather than always trying to correct their weaknesses. Most parents struggle with this shift because they suffer from a negativity bias, thanks to evolutionary development, giving them “strengths-blindness.” By showing us how to throw the “strengths switch,” Lea Waters demonstrates how we can not only help our children build resilience, optimism, and achievement but we can also help inoculate them against today’s pandemic of depression and anxiety. As a strengths-based scientist for more than twenty years, ten of them spent focusing on strengths-based parenting, Waters has seen how this approach enhances self-esteem and energy in both children and teenagers. Yet more on the plus side: parents find it a particularly exciting and rewarding way to raise children. With many suggestions for specific ways to interact with your kids, Waters demonstrates how to discover strengths and talents in our children, how to use positive emotions as a resource, how to build strong brains, and even how to deal with problem behaviors and talk about difficult situations and emotions. As revolutionary yet simple as Mindset and Grit, The Strength Switch will show parents how a small shift can yield enormous results. From the Hardcover edition.
