In our increasingly competitive world, personal confidence is a prerequisite for success and confident children with a positive outlook have a much better chance to grow into successful, well-adjusted adults. No parent wants their child to repeat their mistakes or inherit their weaknesses, and a confident adult can often misunderstand why their own child is fearful. Starting with the idea that in order to instil confidence in your children, you need to begin by being confident yourself, Gael Lindenfield concentrates on practical steps that parents can take to help prepare their children for the business of survival and happiness in school and in life. Along with the broader issues, this book also looks at particular problems such as bullying, moving house, illness, death, marital problems and special needs - handicapped, hospitalized children, ethnic minorities, step-children and foster children.

From the Back Cover:

In light of Columbine and other tragedies, a confident well-adjusted child is an issue more important than ever. Self-esteem and happiness are essential qualities that children need in order to become self-assured adults. So how do we encourage our children to fulfil their full potential and grow to become happy and confident adults? And how do we avoid the fine lines between confidence, arrogance, and precociousness? Gael Lindenfield's book provides parents with practical and reassuring advice to help them raise happy and self-assured children. She focuses on the stress levels of the parent, and offers excellent advice on dealing with bed-wetting, temper tantrums, and attention deficit issues.
