Educating Parents in Either Language

Michael Sedano

How to Raise Emotionally Healthy Children is not a literary title. Nonetheless, the book could make a dramatic contribution in a family who reads it. Translated into Spanish as Como Criar Niños Emocionalmente Sanos, the book promotes a wealth of ideas and guidance that any family can put into action.

Jerry Newmark, a seasoned corporate consultant, has been promoting the book for several years. Recently, his company, NMI Publishers, announced the title has been picked up by a San Bernardino County public health/ neonatal services organization. The health educators see in it a key resource for parents.

One key to the book's value is Newmark's view of "the five critical needs" a child has, and his ideas on how to provide and fulfill these. In Spanish, here's the list:

La necesidad de ser respetado

La necesidad de sentirse importante

La necesidad de sentirse aceptado

La necesidad de sentirse incluido

La necesidad de sentirse seguros

Newmark's discussion of these issues may seem "common sense" to some parents. Sadly, one of the rarest behaviors I've witnessed in the general population, is common sense. How to Raise Emotionally Healthy Children / Como Criar Niños Emocionalmente Sanos, will be worthwhile to any reader. NMI Publishers are at nmipub@earthlink.net, or 18345 Ventura Blvd, Suite 314, Tarzana CA 91356. ISBN 0-932767-08-7 (Spanish) 0-932767-07-9 (Ingles).
Have a great week, gente. Read! Raza.
