Self-esteem is a prerequisite for happiness, and its development begins at home, in the nurturing interaction between children and adults. This popular book, now reprinted with a new look, serves as a source of support for parents who want to take an active role in the well-being of the family as a whole.
Jean Illsley Clarke encourages parents to trust their judgement as they make decisions about childcare. Recognizing, too, that kids' needs are best met by adults whose own needs have not been neglected, Clarke offers options that benefit everyone.
