Nurture My Heart is intended for any parent or adult who desires a powerful yet simple formula for growing greatness in children. It is a formula for creating a family or classroom culture based on genuine success and positive relationship. Nurture My Heart is a story and summary of Howard Glasser's Nurtured Heart Approach, presented in a way that provides a tool to introduce the approach to children and a concise explanation of the basics of the approach. Why not start with success? Conventional parenting relies on our cultural tendency to spend most of our time and energy answering the question, "what's wrong with this picture?" so a child is spoken to and recognized more frequently and more energetically when misbehaving. The unintended outcome is a child with a negative sense of self, who acts from this place of negativity, feels bad on the inside, and knows only what he is not. Howard Glasser's Nurtured Heart Approach reverses this unintended outcome. It shows parents how to answer the question, in exquisite detail, "what's right with my child?" Parents learn how to recognize and celebrate a child for making good choices, and they master the skills to build within their children all of the values and character qualities that create a healthy sense of self and ownership in creating one's successful future: inner wealth! Nurture My Heart demonstrates how simple it is to start with success and forever maintain a positive, strong relationship with your average or intense, uniquely amazing child.

How to help--and cope with--the difficult child Expanded and completely revised, the classic and definitive work on parenting hard-to-raise children with new sections on ADHD and the latest medications for childhood disorders. Temperamentally difficult children can confuse and upset even experienced parents and teachers. They often act defiant, stubborn, loud, aggressive, or hyperactive.

Teacher, Nurture My Heart: Igniting the Greatness of Every Student

Teacher, Nurture My Heart is a fun, rhyming read for teachers and students that demonstrates how educators can ignite a child's greatness in a school setting, no matter how challenging the student. It is a perfect read or gift for any educator, care giver or youth worker who has a passion to make a difference in children's lives. More children than ever are being categorized as intense, challenging or difficult, and at ever younger ages. They are labeled "too energetic," "too distracted," "too compulsive" or simply "too much" for parents, caregivers and teachers to manage. Sometimes they are told that they will not be able to learn how to manage themselves; and perhaps are referred for a formal diagnosis and medication, often with long-term unintended consequences. Teacher, Nurture My Heart is based on Howard Glasser's Nurtured Heart Approach, and is written as an accompaniment to his book, "The Inner Wealth Initiative: Notching Up the Nurtured Heart Approach for Educators." His approach is in use in thousands of classrooms, schools and districts in the US and abroad to great success in making teaching fun again for educators and transforming children to applying themselves with zeal in positive pursuits. Many approaches work for most children, for easier-to-manage children, but this one works for challenging children, usually without medication, and unleashes the full potential of all students, challenging or not. Typical classroom management relies on a cultural tendency to spend most of our time and energy trying to fix a student's behavior by explaining what he or she is doing wrong in any given moment. So a child is spoken to and recognized more frequently and more enthusiastically when not behaving. This approach reverses that tendency: It shows teachers how to enjoy and reflect in exquisite detail everything that is right and good and unique in every student. With it, educators master skills to build within a student all of the values and character qualities that create a healthy self image and a good life: Inner Wealth. Teacher, Nurture My Heart is full of colorful student-drawn images illustrating teachers and students in everyday classroom settings with text that shows educators how to start with success and stay with success for every student. In addition to the beautifully illustrated story, the book includes eight pages of instructions on the Nurtured Heart Approach[: "Building Inner Wealth in our Children," "The Three Stands of the Approach," "Four Recognition Techniques to Ignite Greatness," "Reset: The New Time-Out," "Critical Concepts of the Nurtured Heart Approach[," "Tips for Success," and "Shine the Light of Greatness: Words to Build Your Greatness Vocabulary." Author Catherine Stafford is a licensed clinical social worker and a mother of four who specializes in helping teachers, caregivers, parents and counselors of challenging children and those diagnosed with disorders such as ADHD and autism to experience success. Teacher, Nurture My Heart demonstrates how simple it is to start with success and forever maintain a positive, strong relationship with each of your unique and amazing students.

The Inner Wealth Initiative is about the Nurtured Heart Approach-about creating relationships that energize and support success and positive choices. This book is about its application in schools. Howard Glasser initially created the Nurtured Heart Approach for families in his therapy practice who were at wit's end trying to deal with their difficult children. He soon found that, when this approach was used to help difficult children succeed in the classroom, all the other children in the class flourished as well. This book was born from that realization and from co-author Tom Grove's work with teachers and administrators across the U.S. who have found that the Nurtured Heart Approach is the very best solution for leaving no child behind.
