Présentation de l'éditeur

"Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible - the kind of atmosphere found in a nurturing family."
-- Virginia Satir, Family Therapist

Parenting is not an idea, a concept or a belief. It's a process and therefore is neither static nor fixed in time that results in something special being created. Your activities and responsibilities as a parent evolve with your children, taking into account their needs - physical, social, emotional and intellectual - and your ability to be aware of and to meet these needs. As an effective parent, you help your children overcome perceived limitations to do their best and to be a valued member of the family. All the while, you bump up against your own limitations - many of your own making.

Parents' Handbook: NLP & Common Sense Guide for Family Well-Being provides you with tools, techniques, insights and approaches to improve the way you communicate, to be available emotionally and physically and to successfully fulfill the different roles expected of you as a parent. By the time you finish the Parents' Handbook, you will have discovered how to:

•Have meaningful, supportive conversations with your partner and children.
•Address beliefs or habits that get in the way of being an effective parent.
•Help your children address beliefs or habits that limit them.
•Support yourself and family members in achieving your respective dreams.
•Fulfill the six primary parenting roles essential for the well-being of your children.
•Support your children in learning effectively at school and at home.

Although written for parents, the material is presented at a level older teens can understand and use. With the aid of their parents, younger teens will also find most concepts in this book useful.

This book draws on an area of personal development called neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). NLP has helped hundreds of thousands discover their own potential and live the lives they desire. Make it the difference that makes a difference for your family.

Looking for ways to become a better parent? To stay in communication with your child? Address beliefs or habits that stand in the way of you becoming the parent you would like to be? Then Roger Ellerton's Parents' Handbook: NLP & Common Sense Guide for Family Well-Being is the resource you are looking for.
Drawing on neuro-linguistic programming, more commonly known as NLP, the Parents' Handbook provides you with tools, techniques and approaches for healthy parenting. It is a resource that not only parents, but anyone seeking to improve their relationship with children and youth, will find enlightening. As an organizational consultant, I use and promote many of these techniques in the workplace.

The book is divided into eight chapters. The first three chapters set the stage by helping the reader to understand the basics of NLP and using that information to better understand themselves, their spouse and their children. There are so many good ideas throughout these early chapters, but these two set the tone for the rest of the book.

"Your perception of the world is your reality."
"Your thoughts and actions in the present create your future."

The following three chapters provides techniques for improving communication, tools for change, and steps to achieve your desired outcomes. Examples of techniques include developing rapport, reframing, anchoring and mirroring. A key idea in the toolkit is "changing your perception, changes your reaction." It is amazing how changing a few words can change an experience.

Chapter 7 explores the six primary parenting roles: caretaker and guide, coach, teacher, mentor, sponsor, and awakener. This chapter is filled with tips about how parents need to change their parenting style to correspond with their child's stage of growth and need.

Chapter 8 recaps the material and then provides strategies for effective learning. When you read that 50% of your child's brain nerve cells are connected by the age of six and that ages six to twelve are the most formative years for developing basis skills, it is not hard to see how critical parenting is during these important years.

There is a lot of content covered in these 200+ pages. Parents not familiar with NLP or the underpinning philosophy might be somewhat overwhelmed at first. Take your time as you go through this material. Reflect on what is presented. Do the exercises. Practice the techniques. It is well worth it.

While the book is engaging and an enjoyable read, your parenting style is unlikely to change until you begin to apply the strategies put forth by the author.

As a parent of a 17 year old, I am glad that I have a copy in my bookshelf.

Par Dr. Caron B. Goode, NCC - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Author, Roger Ellerton, PhD, CMC, caught my attention and agreement in his statement that parenting is a process. As a trainer of parenting coaches and a psychotherapist for several decades, I understand Dr. Ellerton's position that parenting can be a proactive, passionate endeavor, depending upon our beliefs, awareness, and how we handle our limitations.
Parents' Handbook: NLP & Common Sense Guide for Family Well-Being provides tools, techniques and approaches to improve our communication, to be available emotionally and physically, and to successfully fulfill the different parenting roles through the NLP approach.

NLP is the acronym for Neurolinguistic Programming, strategies for personal development and growth. Neuro refers to neurology - our visual, auditory, kinesthetic, gustatory and olfactory sensory experiences. Linguistic refers to how we use the language of the mind to make sense of and remember an experience or to forecast a future experience. What does this mean for us as parents?

If we believe we don't have good parenting skills, what two thousand bits of information do we pay attention to at any given moment - All those times that we do not meet our expectations, thus reinforcing the belief. The NLP model shows how we filter information based on our beliefs, values and memories, and encourages us to step outside of our comfort zone and explore our children's realties.

I enjoyed this book immensely because of the clarity of its organization. The easy-to-read language walked me through step-by step how to change. First, Dr. Ellerton made me examine the structure and meaning of how I communicated. Then he offered suggestions for improvement such as rapport and mirroring and leading. And he invited me expand beyond my limitations to achieve my dreams. How perfect is that as a role model for a child's success?

Dr. Ellerton then covers the six roles a parent plays...caretaker, coach, teacher, mentor, sponsor and awakener in using the most effective learning strategies and knowing how to gauge success.

A highly, recommended enjoyable read!

Par Brian E. Walsh - Publié sur

Roger Ellerton's newest book - Parents' Handbook: NLP and Common Sense Guide for Family Well-Being adapts the breadth of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) to suit parents' needs very well.

Many people pay thousands to attend NLP courses with live practice sessions to learn skills that are transferable to academia, management, therapy, and life in general.

In more than twenty years of study, I have read many books about NLP. Roger Ellerton's is certainly one of the easiest to read. It has the depth and breadth to give anyone a solid introduction to the power of NLP's tools and techniques.

Into it he weaves practical non-NLP approaches to communications and success, and, as a specialist in accelerated learning, I am especially pleased by his use of mind maps, stories, examples, and exercises. I am also thrilled that he includes a section on effective learning to help parents in mentoring their children.

Yes, there is advantage to reading content in the order it's written, but you can still check the contents table and go straight to any section that grabs your attention. That you're drawn first to any particular part probably means that it's the more relevant to your life or that of your family at the moment. You can always come back to it later to reread it with newer perception and understanding.

Let me be clear. This book is comprehensive, and it might seem overwhelming on first opening. However, you can be sure that if you successfully employ even only one of its techniques or skills, you will be rewarded for years. Why? Simply just because better parent-child communication lasts a lifetime.

NLP is about being mindful as we live life. This book has many wonderful suggestions on how to be a positive influence with our family. Relationships are a challenge, add kids and suddenly our hands are full, and we're too busy to step back & observe. Take a breath, grab a coffee, sit back, relax and start reading :)

Roger Ellerton's Parents' Handbook is based on the concepts of NLP which is neuro-linguistic programming. "NLP is about how you communicate with yourself, and based on the results of this, how you engage in conversation with others." I appreciated a quote from Mr. Ellerton, since it is something that I share with parents at all of my parenting classes that I facilitate: "Simply put, when you become a parent you are not handed a manual that will answer all your questions or cover all situations. For many, the `manual' you bring to parenting is the one you learned from observing your parents."

Mr. Ellerton has put together an excellent resource for parents/families to put tools in parent's "toolkits" which are strategies to help all members of the family learn how to get to know themselves and others. With these "tools" people will improve their communication skills and be able to achieve their dreams. I particularly appreciated the chapter about the six primary parenting roles. I feel the strategies shared here help to show parents the many roles and ways to help their children through life: caretaker and guide, coach, teacher, mentor, sponsor, and awakener. I think it is very important to see our roles as parents from different perspectives. I feel it is essential for parents to learn and understand the many different ways their children need guidance throughout life.

Reading this book and practicing the strategies and learning all there is to know about NLP will take time and effort. Parenting, especially GOOD parenting, needs both our time and our effort. It is THE most important job in the whole world, the ONLY one that doesn't come with any training. This book will definitely be one that I share with parents in the parenting classes that I facilitate. Buying this book and spending the time to work through it is a small investment for a lifetime of better relationships in our families.
