This classic positive parenting guide has helped many thousands of adults shift from their fear-based upbringings to love-based interactions with their own children.
“Self-esteem must start with the family. The Winning Family needs to be in every home.”
Self-esteem — or the lack of it — dictates how we walk through life. It is the inborn, unconditional feeling of love, security, and well-being that is absolutely crucial to mental health.
“This is a wonderful book! It contains timeless insights, deep psychological truths presented in a simple yet profound way, and practical exercises you can begin to do today to create the quality of life you desire and deserve.”
—Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
The Bullying Antidote: Superpower Your Kids for Life
Help your children develop the communication skills, self-respect, and self-esteem needed to be confident and resilient in the face of bullying.
As parents, we want our children to succeed—not just academically, but personally. We hope they will make friends and feel secure in themselves and their environment when they are on the playground or in the classroom. The reality is, though, that bullying has reached epidemic proportions in our nation’s schools and communities. When it isn’t addressed, it contributes to higher rates of depression, substance abuse, and suicide among youth.
Many kids simply do not feel safe—and their teachers and parents often have no idea what’s going on. Some parents who know that their children are having difficulty do not know what to do: Are these kids just being kids? Should I tell someone?
In this critical, life-saving book, Hart and Caven give parents the skills they need to prevent their children—whether 6 or 16—from being bullied. The antidote is to equip moms and dads with the tools to raise confident and resilient kids through positive parenting. They provide tips and a course of action for:
- boosting self-respect, self-care, and self-esteem in your children;
- teaching your kids how to communicate effectively and assertively;
- devising an action plan with your children in the event they are bullied; creating a family culture where bullying behavior is not accepted.
