Healing Children's Fears

Anger can be a challenging emotion! You can learn to connect with your child in the face of anger or upset. Learn how to build relationships that will sustain you and your child for a lifetime.


Bonus: Setting Limits with Young Children


What do you do when your child acts out? How do you tell a child "No" without triggering a power struggle? Parenting by Connection shows you how setting limits is actually a gift for your child. This booklet teaches you to:


  • Set healthy boundaries

  • Interact with both warmth and authority

  • Create cooperation and closeness

Bonus: Listening Partnerships for Parents


Parents know that there's no better way to make their children feel safe and loved than listening to them. But listening takes work and patience. When you have a listening partner of your own, you can offload stressful emotions, brainstorm solutions, and get back to being the parent you want to be.


In Listening Partnerships for Parents, you'll learn how to:


  • Listen well, and use the attention of a listener

  • Identify the origins of the emotions you experience daily

  • Work through the upsets that make parenting difficult

  • Restore your reserve of patience and presence

We hope you find reading the booklet rewarding.
