For those who have struggled with parenting strategies that have failed or worked for one child but not another, Out of the Mouths of Babes offers a unique parenting approach tailored to working with the personalities of individual children, ultimately educating parents how to observe and appreciate every experience through the eyes of their child.
Parent, educator, and pediatric psychiatric nurse, Dyan Eybergen shares how relying on the principles of attachment theory works for both her and her husband as they raise three boys with very different personalities. Eybergen details how she learned to develop an understanding of how her children were thinking and feeling by paralleling their experiences with her own. She teaches that parents who learn to rely on this theory can uncover successful solutions to such frustrating child-rearing dilemmas as:
- Sleeping through the night
- Eating at all ages
- Toilet training
- Sibling rivalry and conflict resolution
- Effective discipline
This innovative guidebook will help parents empower their children to acquire new skills, effectively problem solve, manage conflict, and develop a healthy self-esteem, and most importantly, offers a new choice for parents who believe there are other alternatives to the one-size-fits-all paradigm of raising children.
