Healthy Parenting: How Your Upbringing Influences the Way You Raise Your Children, and What You Can Do to Make It Better for Them
by Woititz, Janet G.
For people brought up in a heavily adult-centered world, this book will offer up some startling ideas, such as that in a healthy family, the needs of the child come first. In clear and refreshing language, Woititz spells out the key factors in successful parenting. For those who wish to keep unhealthy patterns from repeating down through the generations, this book can make a difference. If you are a parent, may someday be a parent, or had a less than perfect childhood yourself, I recommend this concise book as a calm voice of reason in the wilderness.
