Silver Award Winner - Mumii Best Baby and Toddler Gear, Parenting Books. What is the value of our achievements without self esteem? Dr Holan Liang presents her practical approach to bringing up children from the inside out, setting aside exterior results in favour of building a core of self-esteem, resilience and social ability. Inside Out Parenting is a witty blend of hard science from a research and professional point of view, memoir and hands-on anecdotal evidence, offering an assured route to both happiness and success. With a balance of top tips and failed attempts, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist Holan Liang offers an empowering and holistic approach to parenting that champions building a strong base of 'inside things' so that the 'outside things', such as achievement in musical exams and academia, have a strong foundation and core of security, giving them a deeper meaning for your child.

How many parents have found themselves thinking: I can't believe I just said to my child the very thing my parents used to say to me! Am I just destined to repeat the mistakes of my parents?

Teenagers are unique beings, requiring a whole new parenting approach. Dr. Karyn Gordon, or “dk” as teens call her, knows that approach and has been coaching adolescents and parents for over a decade. She’s a high-demand speaker, an expert on The Mom Show and the go-to teen parenting source for Canadian media. Using her dynamic, pragmatic advice and experience, Dr. Karyn cracks the mysterious code that defines teen behaviour. A book that stands alone amid other parenting guides, Dr. Karyn’s Guide to the Teen Years is firmly based on what teens actually think, feel and do. Gordon explains the recent research that shows the teen brain is actually different and reveals how this difference radically affects adolescent—and parent—behaviours. Her PARENT keys, seen below, will unlock the secret to a happier, healthier parent–teen relationship. Picture: the importance of thinking “big picture” and why parents have to understand what they are hoping to achieve with their teen Attitude: identifying a person’s overall attitude towards parenting and how one’s own upbringing and family principles shape it Respect: building a healthy sense of respect and self-esteem in your teenager Emotion: understanding your teen’s emotional brain—and your own Non-Verbal/Verbal Communication: 10 different communication styles and how they affect your relationship Teach: how to teach responsibility and develop a balanced structure that reflects your family values Throughout the book, Gordon advises on central issues, including depression and mental illness, substance abuse, sex and sexual orientation, privacy and independence, friends and peer pressure, trouble with the law, learning styles and school choices, bullying and violence, and step-parenting.

Just when you thought you've heard it all-"Parenting from the Heart" offers a new and different, refreshing approach to parenting. This easy-to-understand, down-to-earth book moves beyond parenting theories and techniques to get to the heart of parenting. If parents know how to look within their hearts to find the answers they need, parenting techniques are not necessary. If parents know how to find a loving connection with their children at most times, discipline and consequences are rarely necessary. All parents have it within them to bring out the best in their children. Approaching parents in this way makes parenting a true pleasure instead of the battle and chore it often becomes. Many so-called experts say that raising kids is the toughest job any of us will ever do, but it does not have to be that way. It can be the most joyful thing any of us will ever do. "Parenting from the Heart" is a must resource for anyone who cares about parenting and raising children.
