How to Raise and Teach a Thinking Child shows parents, educators and health professionals a unique way of helping children, ages four to eleven, think about what they do and why. If you are tired of repeating yourself over and over, you may feel frustrated, and your youngsters or students may be tuning you out.
Dr. Myrna B. Shure, Dawn C. Oparah, and Bonnie Aberson show you a new way, the problem solving way, of talking with children so that they can feel proud, and not frustrated. Based on twenty five years of research. Dr. Shure's I-Can-Problem-Solve Program for schools and Raising a Thinking Child for Families have received national awards as model prevention programs - most recently, by the Strengthening America's Families Project sponsored by the State University of Utah and founded by the office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency prevention.
