Publisher's Summary

In Unlocking Parental Intelligence, long-experienced psychoanalyst, Laurie Hollman, PhD, encourages parents to find the significance behind their child's behaviors by becoming meaning-makers. Parental intelligence is explained through compelling and empathic storytelling that answers parents' questions: Why do children do what they do? What's on their minds? How can parents know their child's inner world?
Through a clear five-step approach, parents discover the power and wisdom of a new parenting mindset that helps them learn what their kids think, want, intend, and feel. They see actions as communications. They are rewarded with open parent-child dialogue about the underlying problems hidden beneath the behaviors. As they problem solve, parents discover misbehaviors are not only meaningful, but a catalyst to change.
Both parents and professionals alike will find a new parenting approach from this invaluable book that will reshape families lives and guide them through all stages of typical and atypical child development. This accessible listen enlightens, uplifts, and relieves while cultivating critical thinking on the part of parents and children as they wrestle with the common, sometimes desperate, vexations of family life.
