Text messaging. Social networking. Television.

With all these distractions, is it any wonder why so many parents feel powerless to influence their children’s behavior?

Now longtime counselor and workshop leader Phyl R. Brinkley gives parents the tools to take back their families -- so that they can raise resilient and successful young people. The keys are six battle-tested strategies that give children the solid foundation necessary to face obstacles, make smart decisions, and communicate effectively.

And that’s just for starters.

Readers will learn:

- The barriers parents themselves unknowingly place in front of children, hampering their capabilities

- Why children today are less likely to understand the consequences of their actions than previous generations—and how to turn back the clock

- How to ensure kids understand their life has meaning, significance and value

- Ways to help children become socially adept through old-fashioned, face-to-face contact with others

- Keys for instilling independent, positive decision-making skills

- Much, much more

No one ever said children come with an instruction manual, but Deliberate Parenting will help set the stage for growth, maturity, and independence. Packed with post-chapter questions for discussion and additional action steps, parents will stand ready to empower their children with the essentials needed to survive, thrive and succeed in the 21st century.

118 pages in length, Deliberate Parenting: Empowering Children with the Essential 1/2 Dozen is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the family, relationships and parenting category.
