Raising confident, motivated and caring children is a parent's greatest challenge. Drawing on her extensive research on children and parents, Terri Apter has created a guide based on "emotional coaching" - learning to respond appropriately to a child's feelings - that helps parents raise children to solve problems, to be socially active and understand others, and to manage emotions, all of which are crucial to developing confidence and functioning successfully in society.

"Apter treats parenting not as a one-way street in which parents must be trained to act upon their children, but as the interactive process it really is. In order for a child to develop empathy we parents must first learn to practise it." The Guardian "Although it is aimed primarily at parents it is very relevant to teachers... I use its strategies with sixth-formers but they can be applied to all age groups." The Times Educational Supplement"
