Beloved author Diana Loomans provides another great book to help parents connect with and lovingly raise their children. Focusing on 12 key childrearing lessons based on insight from children themselves, What All Children Want Their Parents to Know encourages moms and dads to do things like "teach by example," "give appreciation and acknowledgement," "allow room to grow and make mistakes," and "practice true listening." Each chapter opens with a child's statement of what he or she needs and wants from a parent. Then, using inspiring and heartwarming examples from her personal experience and from her many years educating children, Loomans shows how each statement reflects an important parenting principle. Practical advice and playful, easy-to-do exercises round out each chapter, helping parents work each idea into their individual approach. As always, Loomans makes learning seem casual and fun, and comes across less like an expert and more like a fellow parent sharing the wisdom she has gained through the everyday realities of raising children.
