Getting Your Child on the Road to Responsibility and Independence
by Elizabeth Crary, M.S.
“I do it!” “You do it!” “Let me, let me, let me!” “Why should I do it?”
How do we know when we should do more—or less—for a child? And how do we shift responsibilities? That’s what Elizabeth Crary explains in Am I Doing Too Much for My Child?: Getting Your Child on the Road to Responsibility and Independence, a compact book providing practical guidance for parents, guardians, teachers and caregivers.
Crary describes four levels of support typical for children, and tells us how we can shift from the nurturer role so important in early years to teacher, coach and finally to consultant. Packed with how-to’s, examples, and scenarios we can identify with, this easy-to-read book is ideal whether you’re at the beginning of the parenting journey or anticipating the empty nest. (64 pp.)
