This invaluable guide is designed to help parents and counselors build self-esteem in children from infancy through adolescence, fortifying them with a healthy sense of self-esteem for the rest of their lives. Whereas some professionals are content to teach parents about building only outer self-esteem, as in parents unconditionally praising the children, Dr. Owens believes it is also essential to bolster a child's inner self-esteem. This way a child feels good from within, knows objectively that he's doing a good job, and is not solely dependent on the praise of others. While Dr. Owens believes strongly that parents must give children unconditional love, she is well aware that the world can be a harsh and difficult place. Therefore, she shows that the best gift a parent can give one's children is the tools to acquire the skills and behavior that will enable them to feel good about themselves - from within. This unique book imparts vital information on how parents can instill a sense of pride in their child each step of the way as the child's mind grows in perception and logic. Dr. Owens explains what behavior to expect from children at each developmental stage. She also supplies ample questionnaires so parents can determine the state of their children's sense of self-esteem. Most important, she wisely recognizes the needs of special groups of children. She thus offers specific advice for boosting the self-esteem of children who are shy, aggressive, unpopular, learning disabled, or gifted, as well as adopted children, only children, and children of working mothers, divorced parents, step-families, single parents, and same-sex parents.

Parents face many challenges raising their children. Although basic questions about moral behavior, rules, privileges, and respect of others remain primary among these, after 9/11 it has become difficult to talk about morality in the light of what happened and the way it happened. The aftermath of 9/11 is as much an issue of personal morality as it is one of national security. Can we ever trust religion again? Can we ever again talk about a morality rooted in beliefs about God without clearly defining who that God is and what those beliefs are? This revised and updated edition of Raising Kids Who Care looks at morality rooted in beliefs about what it means to be human. More than ever, we need to provide our children with an early and adequate setting for their moral compasses, of offering ample time and support as they practice being guided by them, and of instilling in them the conviction that holiness is a matter of being truly human. That morality can only be built one child at a time. Book jacket.

Family support programs have been attracting increased attention, and are at the center of efforts to build systems of integrated, comprehensive, and preventive family-focused services. This handbook, developed by the Harvard Family Research Project (HFRP), profiles 73 school-affiliated family support and education programs in the United States to help principals, policy makers, program directors, evaluators, and teachers make decision regarding such programs. The handbook serves as a national resource guide, describing the scope of programs currently implemented in schools serving families with young children. Following an overview that discusses major factors contributing to the success of these programs, the program descriptions are divided into the following chapters: (1)"Preschool and Early Childhood Programs with Parent Involvement"; (2) "Support for Special Needs Children and Their Parents"; (3) "Parent-School Partnerships for School Readiness and Enrichment"; (4) "Home Visits for Parenting Support"; (5) "School and Center-Based Parenting Support"; (6) "Teens, Parenthood, and Child Development"; (7) "Family Literacy and Intergenerational Skill Development"; (8) "Family Resource Centers"; and (9) "Family, School, Community Parternships." Each of the case studies includes demographic information, program philosophy, features, curriculum, site information, funding and staffing information, and evaluation efforts. Contains a listing and description of 109 resources for information, advocacy, and research for family support programs. (BGC)
