This interactive program teaches parents how to create an emotional connection so their child can thrive. Focusing on relational parenting, each volume features an overview of emotional needs, common parent-child conflicts, and how parents can modify their reactions to meet their child’s critical emotional needs: to feel respected, important, accepted, included, and secure.
