Welcome to Day 10 of my birthday giveaway! Today’s giveaway book is:
Liking the Child You Love
Build a Better Relationship with Your Kids—Even When They’re Driving You Crazy
By Jeffrey Bernstein, Ph.D.
Do you feel like you’re at the end of your rope? Are you exhausted by your kids arguing over every little thing? Finally there’s a name for your feelings: “Parent Frustration Syndrome” (PFS). No kid is perfect, but parents often don’t realize just how much their own thoughts, rather than their children’s behavior, contribute to being emotionally overwhelmed.
In Liking the Child You Love, renowned psychologist Dr. Jeffrey Bernstein offers proven strategies for taming the 9 most common toxic thought patterns that stop us from parenting effectively.
As you identify and put a stop to PFS, you’ll be amazed at how your kids’ defiant behavior quickly improves, without having to raise your voice or dole out harsh punishments. Soon you will have a calmer, happier, and more loving relationship with your kids—just by changing your own mind.
