Publisher Comments:

As time-tested as it is timely, the expert advice in Growing Up Again Second Edition has helped thousands of readers improve on their parenting practices. Now, substantially revised and expanded, Growing Up Again offers further guidance on providing children with the structure and nurturing that are so critical to their healthy development — and to our own.

Jean Illsley Clarke and Connie Dawson provide the information every adult caring for children should know — about ages and stages of development, ways to nurture our children and ourselves, and tools for personal and family growth. This new edition also addresses the special demands of parenting adopted children and the problem of overindulgence; a recognition and exploration of prenatal life and our final days as unique life stages; new examples of nurturing, structuring, and discounting, as well as concise ways to identify them; help for handling parenting conflicts in blended families, and guidelines on supporting children's spiritual growth.

This is a book written primarily for people with difficult childhoods who are now parenting children. The book is relevant to all parents, however, because it tells about the developmental needs of children at different stages, and how to parent children in healthy, emotionally supportive ways There are practical, clearcut charts that describe the spectrum of approaches to providing structure and nurturing of children. The authors have another purpose: showing adults how to recognize the developmental needs that were not met as they grew up, and how to "reparent" themselves in order to be fully functioning adults. I'm a mental health professional who works with children, families and adults, and find this to be the most valuable book on parenting of all the ones I have read over the years.
