Boundaries with Kids: When to Say YES, When to Say NO, to Help Your Children Gain Control of Their Lives by Henry Cloud, PhD, and John Townsend, PhD
Often it is easier to control the moment that is is to plan for the future. But… boundries help your child control his/her life now and in the future. They build character, respect and responsibility. Boundaries teach accountability and proactivity to children while also enabling them to deal with envy, honesty, and power or the lack of power. This is another timeless book for parenting toddlers through teens and is the "instruction" book that should come with every child. Henry Cloud is the authority on boundries in relationships for both children and adults. Both authors are licensed psychologists with doctorates in clinical psychology, both maintain private Christian counseling practices, and both are parents. The audio and the workbook together make a winning combination for you and your kids.
