Item description for What All Children Want Their Parents to Know: Twelve Keys to Successful Parenting by Diana Loomans, Julia Loomans & Bernie S. Siegel...
Overview The author of several best-selling children's books and parenting guides offers inspiring examples of parents raising children well, focusing on twelve key child-rearing lessons that include "teach by example," "allow room to grow and make mistakes," and "practice true listening." Original.
Beloved author Diana Loomans provides another great book to help parents connect with and lovingly raise their children. Focusing on 12 key childrearing lessons based on insight from children themselves, What All Children Want Their Parents to Know encourages moms and dads to do things like "teach by example," "give appreciation and acknowledgement," "allow room to grow and make mistakes," and "practice true listening." Each chapter opens with a child's statement of what he or she needs and wants from a parent. Then, using inspiring and heartwarming examples from her personal experience and from her many years educating children, Loomans shows how each statement reflects an important parenting principle. Practical advice and playful, easy-to-do exercises round out each chapter, helping parents work each idea into their individual approach. As always, Loomans makes learning seem casual and fun, and comes across less like an expert and more like a fellow parent sharing the wisdom she has gained through the everyday realities of raising children.

I found this to be a VERY helpful book Jun 2, 2005
I found this to be an excellent book--it is filled with practical ideas that can be put to use right away. Bringing in the child's perspective was a great idea and makes this one of the best parenting books I have come across.
I am happy to recommend such a powerful book!! May 17, 2005
Diana writes in such a way that she easily opens and expands your mind to see new ways of parenting that are practical and playfully fun. I especially enjoyed the chapter on practicing true listening skills to which inspired me further in my desire to listen in all my relationships. Even though I'm not a parent, I'm planning on exercising the 12 keys with my "Little Brother" in the "Big Brother program" and to my younger inner self. If you are a parent, then this would be in my opinion a must have in experiencing the true joy of parenthood!
Diana Loomans has done it again! May 17, 2005
Drawing on her wealth of awareness, sensitivity and insight into parenting and life itself, Diana has created a book for parents and non-parents alike - as well as for children of all ages. Having her daughter Julia's real-world experience and help in creating this book adds greatly to its appeal. Being in the ¨non-parent¨category, I find Diana's heart-warming stories and wonderful tips and tools apply equally to the care of my own ¨inner children!¨ What a wonderful gift one can give to oneself - and to those who are parents too. Conscious parenting is one of our next most important frontiers as we begin the 21st century, and Diana's contribution is a must-read for everyone wanting to make our world a better place.
