9780765702142: Raising Children with Character: Parents, Trust, and the Development of Personal Integrity

Parents and clinicians share a deep interest in promoting children's personal maturity and character development. Dr. Elizabeth Berger, mother, child psychiatrist, and educator, addresses this concern by calling upon her own personal experiences and professional expertise.

The goal of therapists and parents alike is to understand children's emerging character, recruiting the wise and mature aspects of the personality in an effort to surmount difficulties. Dr. Berger identifies general themes in the intimate relationship between parent and child and shows how to support and enhance the forward direction of the child's character growth. Rich vignettes illustrate how ordinary family interactions involving issues such as authority, sharing, schoolwork, money, sexuality, and others can promote this growth process. Concentrating on the long-term unfolding of the child's inner spirit, the parents' mission is redefined, as struggles over behavior management give way to learning to trust and enhance the child's emerging maturity. Addressing both parents and clinicians, this intelligent, well-written, and thought-provoking book offers practical advice and deep understanding of the emotional bond between parent and child.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Berger, M.D., is a board certified child and adolescent psychiatrist with more than twenty years' experience treating children and families in community settings, hospitals, and private practice. She has been on the faculty of the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Northwestern University Medical School, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, and MCP-Hahnemann School of Medicine. Dr. Berger has participated in numerous panels, public forums, and radio and television programs addressing parents' concerns about their children. She lives in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, with her husband and two teenage children.

Review:

Authored by a parent and child psychiatrist, this book is instructive both for parents and educators. It spells out insightfully the 'whys and hows' that lead to healthy child development, self-discovery, good citizenship, and true consideration for others. Richly illustrated with many clinical vignettes, it provides a basic approach to forestall and resolve the growing wave of child violence. (Ruth F. Lax)

Raising Children with Character offers a wise, sensible perspective and pragmatic guidance for parents trying to raise ethical, compassionate children. Dr. Berger focuses on intimacy, relationships, and intelligent, self-confident parental authority. She gives the reader numerous clinical jewels and sensitive wisdom to learn from in this thoughtful, informative book. (Alvin Rosenfeld)

There is hardly a single paragraph in the entire book that isn't worth quoting. (Suburban Express)

Praise for the previous edition: Extremely valuable....this book is full of words of wisdom about parenting and is highly recommended to professionals, parents, educators, and all those interested in the welfare of children. (Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry)

In a sea of books on child rearing and development that focus on or blame nature or nurture, it is a joy to welcome Raising Children with Character. It espouses mutuality and interaction and, unashamedly, love as the catalyst to healthy character formation. The text is written in an easygoing style that encourages readers to participate by calling to mind their own vignettes and examples. The case reports are informative and show the working interactions of a sensitive clinician with her patients from all walks of life, without the jargon of the profession. Designed for everyone from therapists to parents, Dr. Berger's text provided me with new insights even after thirty years of my own practice. (Theodore Shapiro)

Praise for the previous edition:"Extremely valuable....this book is full of words of wisdom about parenting and is highly recommended to professionals, parents, educators, and all those interested in the welfare of children." (Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry)
