The Vibrant Family offers completely new and surprising approaches to parenthood. This book is not about child rearing, setting limits, or a specific way of communicating with children. It is about the ways in which well-being in our relationship is crucial to a good family life with confident and balanced children. The clear message of the book is that it is not the children who should change in order to get the family to function it is the parents. The book also offers practical and concrete tools to help you understand how you and your partner can learn to communicate and act in an accepting and close way, creating a climate in the family that encourages joy and growth.
