An indispensable guide for parents to raise confident, self-disciplined children from the National PTA, the voice of parents and schools.
You are your child’s first and most important teacher. And without falling prey to the “superbaby” syndrome, you can provide your child with a strong foundation for living and learning. How to accomplish this herculean task is what Growing Up Confident is all about: sound practical advice that will help you instill the love of learning in your child, to build self-esteem, to encourage self-discipline, and to foster the confidence your child needs to realize positive and fulfilling school and life experiences.
With the authority and common sense that parents have come to expect from the National PTA, Growing Up Confident is an invaluable primer and resource for all parents that covers a wide range of critical issues: prenatal care, working mothers, learning to play with and motivate your infant, day care, early childhood education, socialization, and self-esteem, among others. At the same time, this book provides the kind of encouragement and instills the sense of self-confidence that all new parents need.
