9780099271130: What Do You Really Want for Your Children?

The doctor who taught millions how to take charge of their own lives, now reveals how to help kids take charge of their own happiness! All parents have the same dream for their children - that they grow up happy, healthy, self-reliant, and confident in themselves and their abilities. Now Dr Wayne W. Dyer uses the same dynamic techniques that fired his previous multimillion-copy bestsellers to show us how to make those special dreams for our kids come true. Here is straightforward, common sense advice about raising children of all ages which no parent can afford to be without. This title includes the seven simple secrets for building your child's self-esteem everyday. It discusses: how to give very young children all the love they need - without spoiling them; how to stimulate creativity; how to encourage risk-taking - without fear of failure; action strategies for dealing with your own anger - and your child's; the right way (and the wrong way) to improve your child's behaviour; the secrets of raising kids relatively free of illness; and, techniques that encourage children to enjoy life.

About the Author:

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer was the bestselling author of 20 books and had a doctorate in counseling psychology. He lectured across the country to groups numbering in the thousands and appeared regularly on radio and television. He passed away in August of 2015.

From Library Journal:

Well-known pop psychologist Dyer ( Your Erroneous Zones ) coaches parents in raising ``no-limit'' (emotionally healthy) children. In an admittedly repetitious but highly readable style, he covers topics like risk-taking, living in the present, self-reliance, and creativity. Each chapter includes strategies, negative child/parent behaviors, and the support systems (``payoffs'') for maintaining desirable behaviors. Dyer's message (directed at kids, but meant for everyone) is sometimes philosophical, often opinionated, and definitely motivational. The catch is that neurotic parents (the majority, according to the author) must first become good role models. Nevertheless, the book has much to offer, especially about reinforcing attitudes of physical ``wellness.'' First serial rights to Ladies Home Journal .
