PARENTING TITLES

 

Smart Love: The Comprehensive Guide to Understanding, Regulating and Enjoying your Child

by Martha Heineman Pieper, Ph.D., and William J. Pieper, M.D. (Smart Love Press, 2011)

Smart Love is a caring and patient approach to parenting created and tested by the husband-and-wife team of Dr. Martha Heineman Pieper and Dr. William J. Pieper. It replaces the old rewards-and-punishments style of parenting parenting as behavior modification which turns parents into disciplinarians, which they don t want to be, and which treats children as miniature adults, which they aren't. Smart Love enables parents to understand the world through the eyes of their child at each stage of development. To "Smart Love" is to cultivate children's inner happiness while managing their behavior in age-appropriate ways, which ensures that children will grow up well behaved, responsible, self-confident, and able to reach their full potentials.
