A collection of thought-provoking, inspirational, sometimes humorous, essays on raising our children. Dr. Marshall Duke, university professor, clinical psychologist and best-selling author (Helping the Child Who Doesn't Fit In) and his wife, Sara Duke, an educator and learning disabilities specialist, have edited a collection of essays featuring advice for parents from professionals who have worked with children for at least twenty-five years. Some forty teachers, pediatricians, social workers, guidance counselors, youth leaders, coaches, psychologists, clergy and others across the country whose combined experience adds up to more than 1000 years, offer wisdom gained from a life devoted to working with children. The essays are divided into four thematic chapters: Creating An Environment for Healthy Growth: What to Do? What to Do?: Shaping Our Children: and Preparing for the "Day." In addition to providing salient information on topics such as discipline, health, education, organized sports and child development, the contributors also discuss how working with children has affected their ideas, emotions and spiritual lives. What emerges from these essays is the powerful message that a lifetime of being with children changes and challenges our ideas of what is of real importance-and what is not-in the lives of our children.
