Présentation de l'éditeur

The epidemic of depression in America strikes 30% of all children. Now Martin E. P. Seligman, the best-selling author of Learned Optimism, and his colleagues offer parents and educators a program clinically proven to cut that risk in half. With this startling new research, parents can teach children to apply optimism skills that can curb depression, boost school performance, and improve physical health. These skills provide children with the resilience they need to approach the teenage years and adulthood with confidence. Over the last thirty years the self-esteem movement has infiltrated American homes and classrooms with the credo that supplying positive feedback, regardless of the quality of performance, will make children feel better about themselves. But in this era of raising our children to feel good, the hard truth is that they have never been more depressed. As Dr. Seligman writes in this provocative new book, "Our children are experiencing pessimism, sadness, and passivity on

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Parents and teachers: Read This! 20 mars 2013
Par Mary Bellis Williams - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an enormously important book about leading your children to new attitudes and new outlooks, and based upon solid and irrefutable scientific evidence. We know that one's view of the world makes a huge difference in success and in happiness. We know that some people seem to be born with a temperament that causes them to just give up and never try and they are miserable much of the time, while others seem born problem-solvers who feel very confident in their own skins. This book shows you how ordinary mortals like us can help children become confident, happy problem-solvers who look ahead in their lives. Every parent, every grandparent, every teacher and counselor should be using this book in their daily interactions with children.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 and to provide a good example. Breaking the negativity cycle is hard 4 juin 2017
Par Joyzer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
My son is a bit too young for this now. But I have some concepts now of how to guide him out of the negativity that is so pervasive in my family. I have been working to lay a groundwork to break the cycle that I see developing in him as well. I have bought a few other books as well, mainly to work on myself. I figured I would need to practice what I preach, and to provide a good example. Breaking the negativity cycle is hard, but this is a good first step, I think.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If it provides one or two good tips or tactics for you, it's worth it. 5 janvier 2010
Par Christopher Wanko - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I'm a firm believer in cognitive therapy. I believe that absent a miracle, you can only really minimize your distasteful tendencies. This works if you are self-aware and willing to change. It's merciful and forgiving. In that vein, I find the book targeting much the same kind of techniques. Getting a handle on your inner dialogue is tough enough for adults, much less children, but at least with children you have the advantage -- hopefully-- of having their attention. Using that wisely, you can help your child unravel their thought patterns and get a better handle on their perceptions.

Mind you, this is not teaching children to be optimistic despite any evidence to the contrary, but a way of dealing with adversity in an adaptable, merciful manner. "Mercy" keeps springing to mind because for many, the inner dialogue is crushing. If this helps alleviate that and point you in the right direction, it's done its job.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Why some kids make it and others don't. 16 avril 2011
Par CG Warren - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I serve on the board of directors for a health and human services organization that serves the needs of children, youth, and families in crisis. Moreover, I spent six and a half years in residential child care from the ages of 11-18. Throughout my life (I am now a very young 55) I have puzzled over the question of why kids given the same opportunities, within virtually the same environment experience success or failure, normalcy or dysfunction, happiness or despair, joy or hopelessness, in such varying degrees and with what seems like complete randomness. The question is as old as time and more complicated as any multivariable predictive model that one would design to determine which infants are bound for success and happiness.

My mother was convicted of child neglect when I was ten years old, this, only months after my father had died of a heart attack. Without a better alternative and my mother's incarceration, I became a ward of the state. Today I hold an MBA and operate a successful consulting practice. My mentors were my caregivers, teachers, coaches, and fellow orphans.

This book based upon the work of Dr. Seligman holds, I believe, a very important key to success. Hope or optimism is the thing without which one does not make an effort to change their current state. By starting early in life and teaching our children, youth, and young adults how to take charge of the negative thoughts and influences there is every reason to believe that they will be empowered to take control themselves. This book is prescriptive in how to apply the lessons learned from practical research and how to make a difference in the lives of people of all ages. Easy to read and without the need for a deep understanding of psychological jargon, any parent, mentor, or influencer of young lives can apply the lessons provided here. I have recommended that the therapists, staff, and volunteers at my organization each be provided copies.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great resource and inspiration, but potentially now superseded by other parenting books. 9 avril 2013
Par Rainbow Bubble - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This was my entry book into the big world of positive psychology, and it remains a firm favourite. I first read it many years before I had children. I love the research he discusses, the basic course in cognitive behavioural therapy that is contained within - for both parent and child, and the way he writes.

BUT I have a number of friends who found his writing supercilious and the book hard going. I think there are other books that are probably easier to implement for parents - the whole brain child, Siegel and how to talk so kids will listen ... Faber

I think this book explicitly asks parents to assess themselves in a way that is confronting (something I love), so I can see why this hits nerves.

I think if you are truly interested in preventing depression in your children, this is a must read. I would probably like a bit more about teaching empathy included within the book, and I would love further follow up on the Geelong Grammar PPP results in the next edition.
