If given the right tools, parents can guide and nurture a child's learning about the world, relationships, and about themselves. Here, Gail Small helps parents encourage their children to look at the world with creativity and opportunity. This book demonstrates ways to create trust through a caring attitude. It also helps readers understand how a child's view can be different from his/her parents' and it helps children to feel safe and secure in themselves so they can take the necessary risks and explore the unknown. Parents are reminded that playful ways of approaching challenges is sometimes how children work them out the best. Parents need to stay connected with their kids and Joyful Parenting explains how. Let Gail Small be your guide as you journey through the adventures of parenthood. She'll make you laugh; she'll make you cry-but she'll get you through!
