"'The Nurtured Heart Approach' gives parents and teachers an absolutely clear understanding of how a challenging child really responds to normal ways of parenting and why traditional methods actually make the situation worse. It also provides a powerful set of strategies designed specifically to turn the challenging child around to a new pattern of success. Using this approach, it is easy to shift the difficult child to being a cooperative child who uses his or her intensity in entirely positive and creative ways. With the right tools, you get to experience the joy of having a therapeutic effect and the joy of watching your child succeed. You get to enjoy the compliments instead of the complaints that so often accompany a difficult child in every area of life"--Cover.

Meet Will Howard, an intense kid who knows what he wants: a day at the beach with his mom, dad, and sister, Lizzie. For Will, waiting to go is hard enough! What will happen when stormy weather spoils the family's plan?Saturday Surprise is the first in a series of children's books featuring an intense young boy named Will and his daily challenges--and triumphs--with emotional regulation and self-control. The series, Everyday Miracles, is grounded in the Nurtured Heart Approach®, a relationship-based methodology to help children discover their self-worth and channel their intensity in positive ways. The first of its kind--a narrative depiction of the Nurtured Heart Approach--Saturday Surprise is more than a typical children's book; it is an excellent resource for parents, teachers, and all manner of professionals who work with children and youth.

Pride and Joy is a different kind of parenting book. In Pride and Joy, child psychologist Kenneth Barish brings together the best of recent advances in clinical and neuroscience research with the author's three decades of experience working with children and families. He shows how a deeper appreciation of our children's emotions offers parents a new understanding of their children's development and better solutions to the problems in their lives. Barish offers advice to parents on how we can restore more joyfulness and pride in our relationships with our children and how we can help children bounce back from disappointment and defeat. He shows how we can repair family relationships that have been damaged by frequent anger and resentment and how we can preserve our children's idealism and their concern for others--how we can raise children who feel good about themselves and also care about the needs and feelings of others. Barish also offers advice on how to solve problems of daily family life--establishing rules and limits, doing homework and going to sleep, winning and losing at games, our children's reluctance to talk to us, their tantrums and lack of motivation, and their addiction to television and video games. He presents down-to-earth recommendations for solving these common family problems--problems that too often erode the joyfulness of our children and our pleasure in being parents. Pride and Joy is both informative and highly practical, and a balanced answer to the extreme methods that too often dominate parenting debates. Few parenting books address the central issues of concern to today's parents while also offering parents as much day-to-day advice.
