How Much is Enough?
Ideal for helping parents avoid overindulgence, this guide also offers a detailed method for teaching child development principles, temperament and parenting skills concurrently.
This 365-page manual includes 74 handouts and posters and 43 interactive exercises for class use. It was written by Jean Illsley Clarke, an award-winning parent educator and the author of several parenting guides, including How Much is Enough?, Self-Esteem: A Family Affair, and the Parenting Press publications, Time-In: When Time-Out Doesn’t Work and Who, Me Lead a Group?
Why a Leader’s Guide for How Much is Enough?
Overindulgence of children is a serious problem with serious consequences. According to research, overindulgence correlates positively with problems and pains in later life.
As the only research-based teaching method for helping parents recognize and rectify overindulgence, the Guide is an especially helpful resource for parenting and child-development professionals.
Since parents give too much from a good heart, the How Much Is Enough? Leader’s Guide is designed to help parents identify effective and ineffective parenting practices without guilt or shame.
The Guide is a clearly written, easy-to-follow text. The format enables busy parent educators to offer courses of four or six consecutive sessions or to include specific activities such as the Developmental Parenting Highway in other contexts.
The Developmental Parenting Highway
Teachers of parenting skills and child development professionals praise this breakthrough method.
The Developmental Highway metaphor shows clearly how successful parenting practices change as the child grows through each developmental stage. The Guide provides a detailed model for identifying the parenting needs of the individual child in each developmental stage and specific life situation. Readers of Clarke’s Growing Up Again will recognize that the Nurture-Structure Highway metaphor has been expanded and made even more useful.
