A parent's guide to helping children feel good about themselves.
A new larger format revised edition of the parenting classic A child's level of confidence is a key factor in forming their personality and confidence in later life.
It is crucial for children to learn to love themselves - all adult issues of self-love, positive thinking and clear goals are equally as important for children and it is much easier to learn these attitudes when growing up.
This book looks at how to provide a helpful environment for children to grow up with a sense of both inner and self confidence. Lindenfield also stresses the need for learning about children's health, because problems like bed-wetting and temper tantrums, may be confidence and attention issues.
She also focuses on the stress levels of the parent - quelling your own stresses relaxes your child. The book also includes important sections on giving your child space and freedom, plenty of stimulation and encouragement, communication and ground rules.
