No doubt your child's well-being is of paramount importance to you. Yet you alone cannot determine who your child will become. There are a myriad of forces beyond your control - from playmates, neighbours, and friends to movies, magazines, and television shows - that shape your child's development. How best can you, as your child matures, retain their trust and exert a positive influence?
Dr. Bill and Martha Sears show that a successful child is an attached child - connected not just to family but to the world beyond. And they offer practical information and examples you can use to foster healthy connection. In inspiring case studies drawn from their nearly thirty years of practice, as well as from their own experience as the parents of eight children, the Searses introduce you to children who have successfully weathered the challenges of growing up.
Whether your child is a toddler or a teenager, The Successful Child by Dr. Sears can help you provide them with the essential tools they need to succeed in life.
