Being a parent is perhaps the most important job many of us will ever have. In this text, clinical psychologist Dr Edward Christophersen and his colleague, child psychologist Dr Susan Mortweet, show parents how to raise their child to become th adult we would all like to be - one who is happy and compassionate, confident but not aggressive, and able to make and keep friends. They point out that from babyhood on through the school years. children learn these qualities by observing and interacting with their parents. In clearly written, easy-to-follow chapters, parents are shown ho to model and reward positive behaviour and avoid the need for ineffective, punitive discipline.

"Parenting That Works is "a book that works! It is teeming with workable advice that will help parents everywhere deal with the inevitable hurdles and hassles of child rearing."
