Mommy and Daddy Are Always Supposed to Say Yes … Aren’t They?
By B. Annye Rothenberg, Ph.D., Child/Parent Psychologist;
Illustrated by Marion Eldridge
40 Pages, full color illustrations, 8x10” paperbound
Published by Perfecting Parenting Press
Parents want to do a good job raising their young children. Today’s parents want their children to be happy and have high self-esteem, but it’s not turning out that way. Parents, teachers and pediatricians are finding too many children self-centered, spoiled, disrespectful, and even angry. And the adults are frustrated. There are too many theories and too many books, but too few show parents how to avoid making the big mistakes during the impactful preschool years.
Annye Rothenberg, Ph.D., a child/parent psychologist experienced with the everyday concerns of typical children and parents, has written a unique two-section book – a story for preschoolers and a guide for parents (and grandparents). The book has already received rave reviews from parents and professionals.
The children’s story tells of a preschooler who wants his way … right now. Through the events of the story, he learns why that can’t always be. Even when his parents say no, they still love him – a lot.
The parents’ guide teaches how to raise confident, content, and empathetic preschoolers without turning them into overindulged royalty. The reader learns what preschoolers are capable to do and how differently their minds work. Parents will learn what are reasonable rules for young children and how to work out parenting differences with their spouses. Parents will be able to tell if their child is learning what they’re trying to teach about behavior and, if not, what to do about it. The guide provides valuable, wise, and practical advice.
This 40-page book is beautifully illustrated with warmth, humor, and eye-catching color
by the talented Boston-area artist Marion Eldridge. The book begins with a “how to use…” page, and ends with a two-page summary of all the “take-aways” in this comprehensive yet concise parents’ guide.
