Advice for Parents on How to Break the Cycle of Neglect, Abuse, or Absentee Parenting Parenting is hard enough when you had good role models in your own parents.

As a parenting expert and someone who experienced negative parenting, Rick Johnson answers that question with an emphatic "No!" Anyone can be a good parent, even if they didn't have one. Johnson shows anxious readers how to identify the ways in which their past experiences affect their own parenting choices. Then he walks them through the process of healing the emotional and spiritual wounds toxic parenting has left behind. Finally, he outlines healthy habits and practices to take the place of the negative ones that may have been modeled for them. Any parent who worries about whether they can break the cycle of abuse, neglect, or absenteeism will find in Rick a sympathetic companion on the road to creating a positive family environment now and for the future.

One in six children in the developed world is diagnosed as having 'developmental or behavioural problems' - this book explains why and shows what can be done about it. Children throughout the developed world are suffering: instances of obesity, dyslexia, ADHD, bad behaviour and so on are all on the rise. And it's not simply that our willingness to diagnose has increased; there are very real and growing problems. Sue Palmer, a former head teacher and literacy expert, has researched a whole range of problem areas, from poor diet, lack of exercise and sleep deprivation to a range of modern difficulties that are having a major effect: television, computer games, mobile phones. This combination of factors, added to the increasingly busy and stressed life of parents, means that we are developing a toxic new generation. TOXIC CHILDHOOD illustrates the latest research from around the world and provides answers for worried parents as to how they can protect their families from the problems of the modern world and help ensure that their children emerge as healthy, intelligent and pleasant adults.
