Summary, etc.:
"In Scaffold Parenting, world-renowned child psychiatrist Harold Koplewicz introduces the powerful new and clincially-tested idea that this deliberate build-up and then gradual loosening of parental support is the single most effective way to encourage kids to climb higher, try new things and grow from mistakes, and to develop character and strength. Offering the ten building blocks or "planks" of an effective scaffold--from laying a solid foundation and setting limits and minimizing cracks--he expertly guides parents through the strategies they need to raise empowered, capable kids while building parent-child bonds that will survive adolescence and grow stronger into adulthood"-- Provided by publisher.
