A Solution-Focused Handbook for Parents
by Vicky Essebag

• Are you looking for practical ways in which to improve your parenting practice and style? • Are you seeking an improved understanding of your child’s needs and daily experiences? • Are you interested in developing a positive relationship with your child while maintaining your authority as a parent? • Do you want to be hopeful and well prepared in the hectic pace of family life? Relationspaces is a valuable resource to help you bring your best self to the parenting role, to build a solid foundation for healthy child development, and to establish loving and supportive relationships with your children of all ages. Based on years of practice, Relationspaces offers a climate for positive communication in which parents confidently engage children in productive interactions that result in successful outcomes. Each chapter carefully explains the 6 Principles of Relationspaces (reflection, strengths, success, action, noticing, hope) which support the parent/child relationship. Case scenarios, sample dialogues, practical tools, and personal exercises, help to integrate each principle into daily life. This handbook is a gift to yourself as you embark on a mindful reflection of your parenting practice, and as you promote success and well-being within your family.
