Format: Paperback
For this edition of The Peacemaker's Bookshelf I have chosen the book "Respect Your Children: a Practical Guide to Effective Parenting," written by Jay Scott Fitter, a licensed family therapist. This book should be handed to every prospective parent as required reading before embarking on the journey of child-bearing and child-rearing. Jay has synthesized the best practices for raising children down to one simple rule: respect your child. The difficulty, of course, is in the details. Jay presents us with example after example of how communication breakdowns, inattention, inadvertence, and benign neglect lead a child to feel disrespected and alienated. As Jay points out, by early elementary school, many parents have started to damage the fragile connections between them and their kids. Kids are taken for granted or, worse, seen as little people that inconveniently get in the way or take up way too much time. Jay presents a number of ideas to help parents respect their kids, thus helping their children grow into empowered adults.

The book is divided into 10 chapters that basically trace childrearing from birth to empty nest. Each chapter has many tips and techniques that are practical and simple to implement. For example, Jay points out that respect begins at birth, if not before. Infants must be touched, held, and caressed lovingly from the time of birth in order to develop into healthy beings. The touching, caressing, and massaging is a sign of respect that, if carried through out childhood will build a powerful relationship between the parent and the child. Each part of growing up presents its own challenges to parents, especially as parents face their own challenges.

Format: Paperback
Therapist Jay Scott Fitter has hit the nail on the head with this book. This book needed to be written, since respect is at the core of good parenting. It seems a rather cold concept at first, but Fitter explains in a clear, focused way, with practical examples, what it means to respect your child, and how essential that respect is to being effective as a communicator, guide, mentor, and model for your child. He shows how little slips can have unwanted consequences and how in contrast, small everyday signs of your respect can build the trust and love between you that sets your child on a healthy path. Fitter shows how respecting the innate goodness of your child enables you to keep your cool when inevitable missteps happen, and he addresses specific events and temptations in the life of a child into adolescence. Fitter's handling of the issue of punishment and his discussion of how to create clear, consistent family rules and expectations are especially noteworthy. And his emphasis on the benefits of just being together should be welcome to parents who sorry that they are wasting valuable time just hanging out with their kids.
