Beschreibungen

<span><span>If we could look into the hearts and minds of our children, we would often realize how little contact there is when we are teaching them. Teaching without a relationship is like swimming without water! This means you cannot raise a child if there is no real relationship. Of course, it is all about the kind of relationship which you as the adult establish towards the children. This is not a partnership and our children are not our friends – they are something else and more: They need our adult voice, but also affection and guidance – in a positive, i.e., horizon-broadening, security-giving, and also a boundary-marking way. This book is about the concept of inclusive parenting and teaching. </span><span>The 29 Rules for Smart Parenting</span><span> are intended to help the reader to become more effective as parents and teachers.<br></span></span>

<span><span>The 29 Rules for Smart Parenting</span><span> are intended to help the reader to become more effective as parents and teachers. On this basis, any advice to establish a friendly relationship with your children misses the fundamental point in the parenting challenge: the responsibility felt and lived. This provides a feeling of security that is far different from feeling accepted in a friendly relationship. Children feel in this elevated awareness that something is expected of them, but at the same time, also know they are on “safe ground” to experiment, to try, and to fail. Such parenting builds trust and establishes an inner basis on which self-confidence and personal responsibility can develop and mature.<br><br></span></span>

<span><span>Preface: Parenting requires substance and underpinning </span><span><br>Rule 1: When you feel your child or adolescent is “difficult”, before reacting out of anger or disappointment, go back to the source of your love!<br>Rule 2: When confronted with violence – show no fear. Meet and defuse it by projecting a controlled presence!<br>Rule 3: If you feel the need to impose sanctions or punishment, first perform a “culpability” check. Keep the level of punishment low in relation to the damages suffered!<br>Rule 4: Live by the values you want your child to commit to in life!<br>Rule 5: Don’t just give an adequate response, have </span><span>quid pro quo</span><span> exchanges!<br>Rule 6: Always look for the impression behind the expression!<br>Rule 7: Surprise with an unexpected reaction!<br>Rule 8: Respond with level-headedness and always be consequential!<br>Rule 9: Create emotions if they have grown cold!<br>Rule 10: Direct parenting measures at the behavior, not at the person!<br>Rule 11: Practice consistency in child rearing!<br>Rule 12: Exercise your “parental privilege” – the key to effective parenting!<br>Rule 13: Put your child rearing practices under the “macroscope” and learn what is preventing your children from doing their homework!<br>Rule 14: Control the amount of time your child is exposed to television and computers!<br>Rule 15: Don’t get forced into buying something just to avoid embarrassment!<br>Rule 16: If you are frustrated, take time alone with your parenting principles and see the reflection in the mirror!<br>Rule 17: Never forget: What bothers you is not your child’s behavior, but rather your interpretation of that behavior! <br>Rule 18: Ask questions that cause them to think – not interrogations that lead to predetermined conclusions!
