Suggests ways parents can build self-confidence and self-respect in children, including asking children's opinions, planning special trips, and offering encouraging words
Make Your Child Feel Special! Help your child write a story, then bind it into a permanent book with stiff covers. Buy a tree, bush, or perennial and plant it to celebrate a special occasion. Take a trip to the library to register for a personal library card as soon as your child can write his or her own name. Relax with your child in a hammock--now there's nice quality time. Vicki Lansky's bestselling books include 101 Ways to Tell Your Child "I Love You"; Feed Me, I'm Yours; The Taming of the C.A.N.D.Y. Monster; and the Practical Parenting series, which together have sold more than 3 million copies.
