Synopsis: As you read "A Parent's Guide to Raising Great Kids" by Dr. Ed Wimberly, you will no doubt notice that this book takes a somewhat different approach to parenting than many books that are on the market today. The primary purpose of this book is not to suggest ways we parents can persuade, coerce, bribe, or if all else fails þu force, our kids to be what we want them to be. Certainly, we want our kids to learn to be respectful of others, responsible, polite, ambitious, helpful around the house, and much more. Of course it is the desire and duty of any dedicated parent to do their best to help develop a healthy self- esteem in their kids, and to encourage them to grow up to be adults who have a sane and reasonable view of what they have to offer.
However, as an author and therapist, Dr. Wimberly believes that it is only as we look more closely at ourselves-as parents to our kids-that we will be more able and well equipped to ¡°design¡± the great, healthy, and responsible kids we want them to become. So what you will be encouraged to do here is to look at yourself and your role as parent to your kids. As you do, your self-assessment will likely help fine tune your actions and attitudes, and in turn, assist you in meeting the goal of raising great and healthy kids. The responsibility of raising great kids is an awesome task, but an exciting one, indeed!
About the Author: Ed Wimberly, Ph.D. began his professional career in private practice 30 years ago. He earned his undergraduate degree in 1968 from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, and a doctorate degree in 1980 from United States International University in San Diego, California.
Ed has served on various boards of non profit organizations, including the Santa Barbara YMCA, Shelter Services for Women, Sports Outreach, and Kid¡¯s Cancer Network. He has also served on the Alumni Association of his undergraduate alma mater.
He has published articles in various magazines and newspapers, including The Gilroy Gazette, Kid¡¯s Vermont News, Melbourne¡¯s Child, Mom¡¯s & Dad¡¯s Florida Magazine, Parent¡¯s Line in Maryland, Parent¡¯s News in Illinois, Santa Barbara Family Life in Santa Barbara, Sydney¡¯s Child, and, Ventura County Parent Magazine in Ventura, California.
In addition to working with married couples, he also treats individuals and conducts groups and marriage seminars.
Ed believes that addressing child-rearing issues and difficulties is usually best accomplished by working more with parents, than with children. His reasoning is that, as parents deal more affectively with their issues, what likely follows is a new, improved, and usually more successful approach to raising their kids. It is his belief that, ¡°Kids are not usually ¡®the problem¡¯ but rather the symptom of something in the parent¡¯s efforts that need fine tuning. Fine tune and adjust the parenting, and you will get the desired results in the behavior and growth of your kids¡±.
