Our families can fill us with joy or bother us with constant, even unconscious, power struggles throughout our lives. This new, revised edition of The Winning Family shows a new generation of parents exactly how to strengthen children with positivity and empathy by building instead of tearing down, and responding instead of reacting. Step by step, this beloved book teaches crucial parenting techniques that break intergenerational blame/shame/enabling patterns and help children develop skills to become confident, capable adults with self-worth and healthy self-concepts.
Dr. Louise Hart and Kristen Caven, a mother-and-daughter writing team, have packed The Winning Family with the latest information, helpful tips, and insightful personal stories from four generations. They present powerful, practical tools in a simple and easy-to-use way. As you abandon unhealthy, ineffective coping mechanisms, you will build
● Deep inner confidence and a positive, realistic sense of self ● The ability to create healthy boundaries and structure ● Effective ways to instill self-discipline and internal motivation ● Skills for honest, kind communication to resolve and prevent conflict ● Positive attitudes that turn obstacles into opportunities for growth ● Emotional intelligence to better understand and process feelings, and ● The resilience to handle change and solve problems.
If you have young children, teenagers, adult children, special needs children, or even no children (and you want to gain insight into your own childhood), or if you are a teacher, a caregiver, or an adult who works with kids, this book is for you. In fact, this book helps anyone who’s ever been in a family—because the same tools that build self-esteem in the first place can also be used to repair damaged self-esteem later on.
The Winning Family is a must-have guide for creating a safe, supportive, empowering family where everyone wins—and a better world begins.

The Winning Family
You learned to parent from your parents, who learned from your grandparents, who learned from your great-grandparents. Did they pass on any adverse patterns of neglect or abuse, pain, guilt, and regret? Did they suffer from war or alcohol/drug abuse, or other emotional trauma? Instead of automatically passing these patterns on to your kids and grandkids, you have the opportunity to interrupt those inter-generational patterns. You can create healthier, more joyful family patterns based on love and connection. This is the work of heroes! Your children will thank you. You will also thank yourself as you enjoy positive family connectedness for the rest of your days.
