Everyone is familiar with situations, events or stages in our lives, where we do not quite feel that we have succeeded as parents or partners. Parenthood is a unique opportunity not just to create a family, but also to create growth and development in our own lives, as well as in the lives of our children and with others with whom we are intimate.

The Vibrant Family is a manual based on the new paradigms that have inspired the authors in their professional and personal lives. They have an optimistic approach and would like to invite you and your partner to develop some of the aspects of ourselves which we believe are crucial to your child's development. Reading this book, you will also be in the process of developing your own relationship in quite a unique way. One of the messages of this book is that we as parents must take responsibility for all the emotions in the family environment—including those that exist between us as a couple. All too often we forget that our children live and are shaped in the atmosphere we, the adults, create in the family! The authors describe ways in which we can act in more confident, meaningful ways that enhance development with the people who are closest to us.
