Dr. Stuart Shanker revolutioniert die Erziehung unserer Kinder: Seine Methode der Selbstregulierung ermöglicht Kindern aller Altersstufen – und deren Eltern – zu einer besonderen inneren Balance zu finden, einem Zustand von ruhiger Wachsamkeit. Von klein an wirken zu viele Reize auf sie ein, spätestens ab dem Schulalter sind sie einem oft unvorstellbaren Stress ausgesetzt. Das macht unruhig, unkonzentriert, aggressiv und hyperaktiv. Erwachsene reagieren meist mit einer Forderung nach Gehorsam – was leider nur dazu führt, dass der Druck weiter erhöht wird. Dr. Shankers Methode geht an die Wurzeln und bietet eine wirkliche Lösung. So kann Kindern – vom Kleinkind bis zum Teenager – geholfen werden. Jedem einzelnen.

Wie Willensstärke unsere Persönlichkeit prägt Es ist das wohl berühmteste Experiment in der Geschichte der Psychologie: Ein Kind bekommt einen Marshmallow vorgesetzt und hat die Wahl – sofort aufessen oder warten, um später zwei zu bekommen? Wird es zögern oder zugreifen? Und was bedeutet diese Entscheidung für sein späteres Leben? Walter Mischel, weltbekannter Psychologe und Erfinder des Marshmallow-Tests, zeigt in seinem Buch, wie Selbstdisziplin unsere Persönlichkeit prägt – und wie sie uns, in gesundem Maße, hilft, unser Leben zu meistern. Als Mischel vor mehr als vierzig Jahren vier- bis sechsjährige Kinder zum Marshmallow-Test bat, wollte er herausfinden, wie Menschen auf Verlockungen reagieren. Eher durch Zufall entdeckte er, dass die Fähigkeit der Kinder zum Belohnungsaufschub beeinflusste, wie sie später ihr Leben meistern würden. Je besser es ihnen gelang, sich zu beherrschen, desto eher entwickelten sie Selbstvertrauen, Stressresistenz und soziale Kompetenz. Wie aber kommt es, dass manche Menschen offenbar über stärkere Willenskraft verfügen als andere? Und, noch wichtiger: Ist diese Fähigkeit genetisch veranlagt oder kann man sie lernen? Walter Mischel beschäftigt sich seit mehr als vierzig Jahren mit diesen Fragen – im vorliegenden Buch präsentiert er seine faszinierenden Erkenntnisse zum ersten Mal der breiten Öffentlichkeit.
