Hello Familius readers. I'm glad to let you know about my new book, Unlocking Parental Intelligence: Finding Meaning in Your Child's Behavior, to be released October 13, 2015. Do you wonder why children do what they do? What’s on their minds? The curtain is lifted on these questions when Parental Intelligence helps parents become “meaning-makers” who understand the significance behind their kids’ behaviors. They will learn what their kids think, want, intend and feel. They will view actions as communications and grow into effective, creative problem solvers with a five step approach. Read compelling stories of parents who found success and wisdom by using this new parenting technique. This uplifting book will sustain parents and professionals through all stages of typical and atypical child development.
I am a psychoanalyst with specialized clinical training in infant-parent, child, adolescent, and adult psychotherapy. I write extensively for parents about child development, mental health, Parental Intelligence, and a broad range of parenting topics. I've been on the faculty of New York University and the Society for Psychoanalytic Study and Research. I write parenting articles for Moms Magazine and guest articles for a range of parenting websites. I'm a proud mother of two which is actually my most important job.
