"How to Excel at Parenting: 33 Proven Success Strategies", by Dr. Brian G. Gilmartin, presents and discusses 33 research-based strategies for effective and successful parenting. Each strategy is rooted in a general consensus of the best of available psychological research studies. Several of the strategies are also rooted in the major theories and principles of social psychology, a branch of the discipline often overlooked by people in human development. The book gives due emphasis to the three most important considerations that are known to be involved in successful parenting: providing the child with emotional support and emotional intimacy/engagement; making the child feel understood and accepted just as he/she is; minimizing stress in the child's life; and exposing the child to a range of interesting experiences. This is the only book on parenting that contains an annotated bibliography. It covers topics that many other parenting books do not, such as: children's fear of death, dealing with teen pregnancy, family size and its consequences, the importance of the parents' marriage, summer camp and its drawbacks, and dealing with bullies. 110 pages of the book are devoted to Questions & Answers, which is designed to promote student engagement and participation. It applies basic principles of social psychology to the subject of successful parenting.
