""My kid is smart, but..." It takes more than school smarts to build a fulfilling life. In fact, many bright children face special challenges: Some are driven by perfectionism. Some are afraid of effort, because they're used to instant success. Some routinely butt heads with authority figures. Some struggle to get along with their peers. Some are outwardly successful but just don't feel good about themselves. This warm and practical book explains why and offers parents do-able strategies for raising capable, confident, and caring children. With wisdom and compassion, psychologists Eileen Kennedy-Moore and Mark S. Lowenthal describe specific approaches parents can use to guide children toward developing inner strength and outward empathy. Drawing from research as well as the authors' clinical experience, this book provides strategies for helping children learn to cope with feelings, build relationships, and embrace learning. It focuses on the essential skills children need to make the most of their abilities and find personal satisfaction"--Provided by publisher.
