Why Can't I Be the Parent I Want to Be?: End Old Patterns and Enjoy Your Children
New Harbinger Publications, Jan 1, 1999 - Family & Relationships - 194 pages
Plenty of literature exists on good parenting, but parents learn little about emotional obstacles to following the advice. Schemas can be rigid enough to enslave, so the authors show readers how to initiate change by analyzing schemas, identifying triggers and thoughts, and monitoring recurrences.
