Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Author and psychologist Lawlis (also an adviser on the Dr. Phil television show) presents a three-month program designed to "restore the two-way flow of love between parents and children." Initially, Lawlis helps to "identify the original causes of a 'difficult child,' " offering sound solutions-perhaps as simple as cutting back a manic schedule: "Children of all ages need downtime." Next, Lawlis methodically leads participants through a series of chapters that help uncover a family's unique challenges, strengths and weaknesses, which point the way forward. Each phase of the program includes helpful quizzes and exercises to aid participants in identifying problems and reshaping their roles, responses and relationships. Topics are varied and occasionally innovative, including "Sour Brain Phenomenon" ("those minds that are crippled by chemical pollution of one sort or another"), the importance of "Nurturing Meals," and "Natural Healing Powers" (touch, scent) that anyone can practice. At times the self-help vocabulary is a little cloying, (e.g., "Feel it and Then Heal It," "Relating Not Dictating"), but Lawlis' reassuring voice and fully-fleshed program, coupled with frequent examples of family success stories, offer effective ideas for disconnected families.

Format: Hardcover
Parental love for a child is one of the strongest emotional bonds. However, love alone does not guarantee a healthy, solid relationship or a happy, confident and well-adjusted child. And isn't that what you want the most? Dr. Frank Lawlis shows you how to channel your love so that you can be a successful parent. Each chapter focuses on one of the 10 steps Lawlis suggests to build, reshape and strengthen the bonds between you and your child. His steps include learning effective communication, managing behavioral challenges, and developing the ability to cooperate, heal and forgive. The book overflows with helpful quizzes, exercises and real-life examples, adding structure and life to his advice. Although Lawlis crafts his plan to fit a 90-day schedule, getAbstract suggests that parents seeking guidance concentrate on the chapters that address their specific concerns.

Excellent companion to help with your parenting. I have given it to several people in my life who were struggling with reaching their child; age ranges 7-16 years. Much of the information can be self-applied. Great buy.

This book is a definite must read for any parent wanting to either improve or rescue their relationship with a child, or for those just starting out. I would highly recommend it for all new parents. It is easier to begin a healthy relationship than try to rescue it later. I have learned so much from this book.
