Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice
Since its initial publication, Raise Your Kids Without Raising Your Voice has swiftly become a favourite guide for parents. Radcliffe understands the challenges that parents face in the big and small tasks of raising kids. She offers stress-reduced strategies for gaining children’s cooperation, eliminating the need for anger and criticism. Gentle on both parent and child, these strategies can be easily learned and used by anyone.
Radcliffe also suggests practical ways to strengthen the essential bond between parent and child. Her communication tools foster love, acceptance and healthy boundaries. In addition, she shows parents how to help their kids deal with their emotions: handling disappointment, loss, fear, jealousy, anger and all the other human feelings. And she helps parents cope with the most challenging aspect of childrearing: their own feelings of helplessness, anxiety and stress. Simple and effective, written in a clear and accessible style, Raise Your Kids Without Raising Your Voice is the book that every parent needs.
The Fear Fix : Solutions for Every Child’s Moments of Worry, Panic and Fear
While serious anxiety affects one in five children and teens, virtually every child has anxious moments and frightened feelings. The Fear Fix approaches anxiety as a normal process of thinking and feeling that occurs naturally in people of all ages. Friendly and authoritative, the book helps parents understand the difference between “normal” and more serious anxiety so that parents know when professional help is required and when “home treatment” is appropriate.
Sarah Chana Radcliffe offers parents a wide range of interventions, layered in such a way as to offer parents as many useful options as possible to help their kids through all the small and large anxious moments that they will inevitably encounter. For this reason, Radcliffe gives parents three levels of intervention: things they can say and/or do in the moment that can help their youngster negotiate feelings of fear; fear-calming activities and exercises they can teach their child to use independently; and mind-body strategies they can use with their child in order to uproot the child’s fear at its source.
