Description (Publisher Website)
Parenting is a Contact Sport will help parents build permanent and powerful relationships with their children that will see them through tough challenges.

Skillfully balancing information from her years as a therapist and her experience as the mother of two girls, the author guides the readers through the biggest problem areas of parenting, including communication, discipline, belonging, honesty, and self-esteem. Readers will learn that the key is establishing a connection through physical, verbal, and even unspoken contact.

This book will stimulate thinking about families and provide courage to improve, renew, or repair damaged relationships. Providing specific behavioral advice supported by anecdotal material, the author coaches readers through the tough spots of making contact and deepening bonds - in the present and for the future.

Parenting isn't easy and you have to get down and dirty at times, but building lasting relationships with your kids takes work, effort and a lot of love. Parenting is possibly the hardest, most important and most fulfilling job that most of us will ever have. Joanne Stern gives you practical advice, experienced advice on how to connect with your kids and build that great relationship that will carry through to adulthood.

This book is definitely worth the time to give it a read. Some of the advice may seem like it's just common sense, but it's still worth the time. You'll definitely find information that you can use!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
