Your Living Legacy


Product Description
Product Details


"This book stands apart from other guides aimed at conscientious parents, through its broad-ranging and comprehensive content. The author strikes an effective balance between informational content and personal reflections, while self-assessments and questionnaires provide an interactive element." --Book Life "Your Living Legacy is not a self-help book, but a guided tour of discovering yourself as a parent. It may happen that you will discover something considerably different from what you expected." -- Net Galley review "The majority of the work is devoted to a comprehensive "Parenting Styles Inventory" outlining 20 different styles. For each, the author describes its effects on children and provides anecdotes; offers a rating scale to help readers recognize the style in themselves, their spouses, and their parents; and delivers helpful tips for strengthening or curtailing behaviors...Chosak urges readers to aim for objectivity, yet also remain compassionate in their assessments of themselves. She clearly believes that all parents have the best intentions and that they all, on occasion, fall into several of these styles." --Kirkus review "Parenthood is often considered instinctive, yet it remains mankind's hardest task. It is a fine art in need of both education and practice. Your Living Legacy, by Dr. Shelli Chosak clarifies some of the points other books may have left ambiguous. Years of experience give the author a unique opportunity to re-examine this time-old subject. As a mother of three grown children, and one who had proudly considered herself "good", I learned much from it. May these guidelines give younger parents the tools to avoid some of the mistakes many of us have made along the way." -- Zohreh Ghahremani, Author of The Moon Daughter. "This basic primer for parents is a helpful guideline into the different parenting styles and their effects on children. The book is a welcome, common sense approach for parents who want to build healthy relationships with their children based on mutual love and respect. I particularly like the way the chapters are laid out with main ideas, examples and practical exercises. Parents and educators will find, "Your Living Legacy," a meaningful text to consider as a tool in parenting." - Professor Sally Nalven, Child Development Department, San Diego Miramar College
