If you have children, then you have dreams for them. You want to see them growing up happy, healthy, self-reliant, and confident in themselves and their abilities. But if you're a typical parent, you've wondered if you'll be able to give them all this. There's good news: you can.

Wayne W. Dyer shares the wisdom and guidance that have already helped millions of readers take charge of their lives -- showing how to make all your hopes for your children come true.

You will learn:

  • the seven simple secrets for building your child's self-esteem every day.

  • how to give very young children all the love they need -- without spoiling them.

  • how to encourage risk-taking -- without fear of failure.

  • action strategies for dealing with your own anger -- and your child's.

  • the right way (and the wrong way) to improve your child's behavior.

  • the secrets of raising kids relatively free of illness.

  • techniques that encourage children to enjoy life.

It's all here -- straightforward, commonsense advice that no parent can afford to do without.
