The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us
Do you cave in to your kids’ demands even when you know it’s a bad idea? Do you rescue your kids when they forget things? Do you find yourself ‘over-contributing’ to your child’s school project so he can meet the deadline? Most parents do these things because they can’t figure out what else to do in the heat of the moment. Amy McCready shows parents why this kind of parenting raises kids who don’t learn from experience, don’t take responsibility, and are no fun to live with! She describes exactly what parents can do and say to set appropriate limits and help kids develop resilience.
