How Your Child Thinks: Give Your Child the Superpowers to Be a Happy, Healthy Person

What's the secret to raising happy, healthy and fulfilled children? In an age where children are exposed to so much more of the world and expectations of them are higher, this task can seem overwhelming for today's parents. Actually, today's parenting techniques might be more causing more problems for children.

How Your Child Thinks: Give Your Child the Superpowers to Be a Happy, Healthy Person (ISBN 13: 9780131568150 $18.99, FT Press, 272 pps., February 2009) authored by Stephen Briers, Ph.D., a working clinical psychologist, reveals to you the secret to raising happy, healthy, satisfied children today: provide them with the skills, tactics, and strategies they need to manage their own lives.

In his innovative approach based on new research about positive psychology, Dr. Stephen Briers teaches powerful, proactive parenting methods that don't just respond to bad behavior, but help keep it from happening in the first place. He shows you when there is a better alternative, why your child is more intelligent and capable than you realize, and how you can help your child reach his or her fullest potential.

Briers also helps you:
Develop your child's resilience
"Inoculate" your child against depression
Strengthen personal competence and social confidence
Boost your child's problem-solving skills

Following is a list of chapters/table of contents in the book, which are available as excerpts upon request:

Chapter 1: X-ray Vision: What's Going on Inside?
Chapter 2: Developing Super-Senses: The ABC of Feelings
Chapter 3: Mind Control for Beginners: The Foundations of Self-Control
Chapter 4: Becoming Indestructible: Nurturing Resilience in Young People
Chapter 5: Wrestling with Monsters: Overcoming Stress and Anxiety
Chapter 6: People Powers: Cultivating Social Confidence
Chapter 7: Unstoppable: Boosting Your Child's Problem-Solving Skills

The tips and insights in this book will help readers promote a lifetime of happiness and well-being for their child: one day, one minute at a time.
