How can we keep children safe in an uncertain world, but also raise them to be confident in taking the healthy, emotional risks necessary to succeed in life? The authors of this unique book—two clinical psychologists, who are also mothers—provide essential guidance for parents and teachers. They explain, step-by-step, how to help children become successful risk-takers: ready to leap at life’s opportunities and triumph over setbacks along the way. With stories based on the diverse families from their practice—from parents afraid to let their rambunctious daughter out of sight, to those who fear their shy son may lose opportunities to connect at home and school—they offer real-world scenarios with realistic solutions. Readers will find helpful checklists, self-reflection exercises, and other resources in this authoritative book.Susan Davis, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist in private practice and a consulting psychologist at the Saul and Carole Zabar Nursery School in New York City.
