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.

An indispensable guide to understanding—and living or working with—people whose behavior leaves you frustrated and confused We all have people in our lives who frustrate, annoy, or hurt us: workplace bullies, those who always claim to be right, or those with anxious or obsessive personalities. And most of us hurt others occasionally, too. Now, authors Dr. Helen McGrath, a clinical psychologist and professor, and Hazel Edwards, a professional writer, offer this highly readable, extremely practical guide to dealing with the difficult personalities we encounter every day—in others, and in ourselves. Taking the American Psychiatric Association's widely used Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR) as its starting point, Difficult Personalities helpfully outlines over a dozen different personality traits and types, detailing their common characteristics and underlying motivations. It also equips readers with numerous strategies for dealing with difficult behavior, including: • Anger and conflict management • Optimism and assertion training • Rational and empathic thinking • Reexamining your own personality. Readers will also benefit from sections on making difficult decisions and maintaining romantic relationships. Perfect for anyone who has ever wished that other people came with a handbook, Difficult Personalities illuminates the personality differences that so often serve as barriers to cooperation in the workplace and harmony at home.
