The Family Bond: Inspiring Tips for Creating a Closer Family
'Magical and uplifting, "The Family Bond" is a timely, important book that serves as an inspirational tool to support parents in their efforts to build family relation- ships that last a lifetime-and beyond." -- Dianne Sautter, President, Chicago Children's Museum "Filled with positive, understanding messages about family life and the importance of recognizing each child's individuality. It's easy to read and provides ideas and tips on ways to encourage family togetherness." -- Bernice Weissbourd, President, Family Focus, Inc. 'When I started reading "The Family Bond," I assumed that it was going to be simply a book on how to raise children. Instead, I discovered that it was a self-improvement book for both parents and grandparents to help their children become responsible young adults. This is the best book I've seen on this subject!" -- Darlene B. Lowe, Chairman of the Board, Edward Lowe Foundation "Could there be an antidote to the hectic, haphazard parenting that characterizes so many families today? In contrast to the great attention being paid to dysfunctional families, Dr. Susan Smith Kuczmarski offers a fun formula for functional 'family-making."' -- Michele Moeller Chandler, PhD, Instructor, Williams College Susan Smith Kuczmarski is a lecturer, educator, and an authority on the sociology of family culture. She has done extensive research on how children learn social skills. She holds a doctorate in education from Columbia University, conducts frequent workshops and seminars for parents and educators, and has appeared on many radio and television programs.
