Parenting

  1. Create a supportive environment that give parents a sense of feeling less alone and more optimistic about their abilities to parent
    1. Review their history of parenting and the lack of any meaningful guidance in helping them raise a healthy child
    2. Help them see the role their parents played in their parenting attitudes; embracing the constructive influences and avoiding the destructive ones
    3. Help them see their role as mentors and stewards in promoting their child’s physical, emotional and spiritual health
    4. Teach them about their child’s neurological, emotional and spiritual developments and needs
  2. Provide them with the tools to hear their child’s needs and how to meet those needs
  3. Encourage them to help their child explore and develop his or her own authentic sense of who s/he is
  4. Help them create a safe home environment which will foster an openness and a challenging space for the child to become self sufficient and independent

It’s Scary to Step Up

This weekend Jeff sent me a tentative breakdown of the book chapters. It’s been two weeks to the day that he and I started working together.  The breakdown was nothing short of genius.  His ability to sort through and integrate all of the information he gathered through our phone discussions, my writings and the various []

World Parents for Children?

Jeff and I have been speaking every morning for the past week, sharing with each other the new ideas of the day.  It’s cool, we are both morning people and we wake up bubbling with exciting thoughts regarding content and direction.  Our first meeting was last Sunday where we spent five hours together, with me []

Jesse James: con artist or emotionally arrested 7 yr old?

I am taking a little detour today from blogging about the parenting book to discuss my observations of the Jesse James Interview last night on Nightline.  Those of you who know me may be wondering what on earth am I doing discussing pop gossip?  It is so not my cup of tea.  And you’d be []

Why A Parenting Book?

I have mentioned how I have wanted to write a parenting book for over three years now in my earlier blog.  What I haven’t revealed is that one of the main reasons I became a therapist was my own painful experiences with my parents, in particular, my mom.  Like many people I know and most []

Dear Ima

Dear Ima, Ours was not always the warm, loving relationship it is today.  I remember vividly the day it changed for me.  It was a week before Leor and I were due to leave Germany.  Freddie needed to stay behind for another month and there was so much I needed to do to get our []

New Venture – Writing A Parenting Book

Sorry to have been MIA for the past month.  As I began writing my last blog, which was going to follow up on the Transcending Fear one, I was gripped by a compulsion to write about parenting.  I am not sure why.  Maybe it’s the insecurities and fears present with all the parents I am []
