The Confident Child

Some brief overview of book

Raising confident, motivated, and caring children is a parent's greatest challenge. Drawing on her own extensive research on children and parents, and on the concept of emotional intelligence which Daniel Goleman brought to public attention in his groundbreaking and best-selling book Emotional Intelligence, Terri Apter has created a strategy based on emotional coaching - learning to respond appropriately to a child's feelings - for parents to promote self-esteem in children. In an accessible style, with down-to-earth examples of children's lives in the family and in school, Apter shows parents how to raise a child to solve problems, to be socially active and understand others, to express feelings appropriately, and to manage emotions - all of which are crucial skills in developing confidence.
