Yet, all the academic research coupled with the best diagnoses for children can still leave parents feeling completely powerless. In her book, Dare to Love, Heather Forbes, LCSW, describes in detail, through a series of questions and answers, how to merge science into everyday parenting. This book gives practical, effective, and loving solutions for any parent struggling with his or her child. It will leave you feeling empowered, hopeful, and excited to be a parent, again.

Description

I feel hope now. This method feels right. My favorite saying is, Compassion is the highest form of wisdom. This method is the higher way. --Parent I have tried so many parenting techniques and read so many books over the last 12 years. Nothing has helped. This method makes so much sense. Somewhere inside myself I suspected these things but all I had learned in the past made me reject these suspicions. You showed me it is love, understanding, and safety my daughter needs, not more consequences that don t work! --Parent This parenting technique and philosophy is one of the most powerful and basic ways to be a parent. It reminds us that being a good parent involves keeping ourselves regulated and recognizing that our children want to be in a relationship if we can give them the love to overcome the fear. --Parent I have tried so many parenting techniques and read so many books over the last 12 years.
