Descriere: A tear-free approach to child separation blues-from the bestselling 'No Cry' author a generation of parents have come to trust
Almost every child suffers some sort of anxiety during their first six years of life. Babies cry when grandparents hold them, toddlers cling to mommy's leg, children weep when their parent leaves them at daycare, at school, or to go to work. This can cause frustration and stress in an already too-busy day and can break a parent's heart. Trusted parenting author Elizabeth Pantley brings you another winning no-cry formula that helps you solve these common separation issues. Pantley helps you identify the source of anxiety and offers simple but proven solutions. In this exciting addition to the series, she presents the "magic" bracelet method as an ingenious means for children to feel close to their parents-even when they're not together. This successful approach gives anxious children something to remind them their parents aren't too far away-instantly providing them with the comfort and reassurance they need.NOTE: This edition of THE NO-CRY SEPARATION ANXIETY SOLUTION provides guidance on making and purchasing a magic bracelet, but does not contain a bracelet inside the book.

Many schools and districts have proclaimed their "strategies for family engagement" and set about "doing things" but they have not succeeded in engaging all families.

In a book likely to transform how parents manage many of their child's daily struggles, Drs.
