Can You Love Someone Too Much?
More filters. Sort order. Oct 14, Emily rated it really liked it. I picked up this book because I sometimes get the impression from my husband that I am not "hard enough" on our children and that I need to adjust my parenting style a little differently in order to raise healthy children. The book presents three main types of parenting that can be damaging to children: overprotection, overindulgence, and overcontrol.
I was interested to know which of the three categories I fit into if any. I was surprised to find out that I don't truly fit fully into one category. It was helpful to read through the chapters and realize that these attitudes and behaviors were actually forms of overprotection, overindulgence, or overcontrol.
I think the best thing this book has done for me is to open my eyes about some of these things. Parenting has us constantly adjusting to how we relate to and deal with our children. It's different for each child, and it differs from day to day. My children seem to have very easy temperaments, so we have been very blessed. I want to make sure that some of my behaviors are not going to cause them long-term problems with life and relationships though. About half of the book contains more general parenting advice like how to tell what the temperament of your child is and how to adjust parenting accordingly.
There seems to be a good mix of general advice and actual techniques you can use. My only complaint with this book is that it seems just a little unorganized. I think it would have been better to have divided it up into larger sections and focused on the three O's separately. There were three chapters in middle of the book covering these parenting problems, but the rest of the chapters were all mixtures of things. It jumped around a bit, making a little hard for me to stay focused and really grasp the concepts sometimes. I do think this book is worth reading for any parent.
Jul 11, Vincent Ng rated it it was amazing. Very helpful book in understanding and dealing with children. This is because children are born without boundaries and if a parent fails to teach them, then they develop the attitude of looking at what parents do for them as their rights or entitlements rather than privileges. However, boundaries should not limit the love of a parent to children but only help to teach the child have good character.
Children go through different challenges in life, which require them to be guided through in order to make the right decisions in life. Some people think that childhood is an easy and carefree lifestyle, but children do go through challenges and may have stress at one point or the other in their life. For instance, during times such as divorce, relocation, death in a family, among others, the child goes through times of confusion that require the attention of a counselor. In this case, Christian counseling plays the most vital role in helping children overcome such issues while basing the idea from the word of God.
Such changes may include parents divorce, death in a family, among other things. The changes may at times be too sudden or severe, thus putting the child in a position that requires the attention of a qualified psychotherapist to try and sort out the problem. In some cases, some children may find it difficult to share their problems with their parents, relatives or friends because they want to keep the issue as a secret or they may be embarrassed of the situation.
In other cases, children may display their problems or stress by acting in manners that cause problems like being violent, being too quiet or withdrawing. There are several reasons that trigger the need for professional counseling for children, some of which are discussed below.
This is possible by showing the child love while maintaining the required boundaries without overprotecting, overindulging, or over controlling. Some of the signs that may require the attention of a professional counselor may include the following. In most cases, children do not talk about being sad but they may be acting in a way suggesting that they are sad. For instance, the kid may be crying over small and big issues for long periods without being able to stop.
When the child is not able to move from a past event, it may be a sign that the child requires a little more attention. When a negative scenario takes place and affects the life of a child, it is understandable if the child talks about it for a while immediately it takes place.

For instance, the child may keep on talking about issue that took place along time ago e. Separation of the parent, death of a loved one like a parent or a sibling, a better lifestyle they had in the past, a place they relocated from among others. The child should be provided with an opportunity to avoid thinking about the past occurrences or events and always think about the present situation or future prospects. This is evident when the child does not show interest in playing with other children or getting involved in taking part in activities that involve many people.
If a child was used to saying goodbye to the parents every time before they parted and then changes suddenly, there may be a problem that needs urgent attention. And if they have to part, the child keeps asking about the parent many times as the day goes-by or before they meet again. In addition, if they are staying far apart, the child may fake reasons of going to see the parent. The child seems to forget easily or to get distracted from the jobs assigned to them.
Their class performance may deteriorate drastically; they may be unable to complete class work and may not be able to follow instructions well. At times, it gets difficult to predict what and when a child may do something.
A child may start oversleeping or may have problems in sleep coupled with nightmares. She may also have problems with eating or start overfeeding. When children change their normal routine, then it is evident that there may be something wrong happening in their lives that is far beyond their ability to manage.
Children are gifts from God and may at times be a challenge to their parents. In Corinthians , the bible encourages the parents to live with them as they are, as they help them through life through counseling. Raising children in Christian manner is equally not easy in the secular world today. A Christian parent has the ability to ensure that children are not overwhelmed by the pleasures of the world but have grown in faith.
This is only possible through God, without ever ceasing to read the word of God and being a good example to them Csahm, About this product. ThriftBooks Store thrift. Search within store.
