Are you up to the challenge of parenting? Even if you do not have children of your own, you may be an aunt, uncle, neighbor, teacher, involved in childrens' lives in some way. I recently red a book caled To Raise Happy Kids, Put Your Marriage First by David Code. I picked it up at the library.
One of his main points was to recognize what is going on inside your own head. If you are feeling anxiety about your child, ask yourself if that anxiety is related to your own life experiences? Are you afraid your child will have a bad temper like you? Are you projecting your own problems onto your child?
His ideas are logical and practical, similar to the principles found in Love & Logic books by Jim Fay.
