Any parent who has followed an active toddler around for a day knows that a child of this age is a whirlwind of explosive, contradictory, and ever-changing emotions. Many books cover the physical and cognitive abilities of the toddler, but Lieberman's is the first to offer an in-depth examination of the varied and intense emotional life of children from ages one to three. Drawing on her lifelong research, Dr. Lieberman addresses commonly asked questions and issues. Why, for example, is "no" often the favorite response of the toddler? How should parents deal with the anger they sometimes feel in the face of their toddler's unflagging obstinacy? Why does a crying toddler run to his mother for a hug only to push himself vigorously away as soon as she begins to embrace him? With the help of numerous examples and vivid cases, Lieberman answers these and other questions, giving us, in the process, a rich, insightful profile of the roller coaster emotional world of the toddler. Lieberman shows that the toddler is torn between the strong desire to remain close to the parent and the equally compelling drive to explore new and exciting surroundings. The author discusses how a child can be helped to achieve a balance between these conflicting desires, to feel both confident and outgoing as well as protected and comforted when necessary. Lieberman also provides fascinating new material on how children's different temperaments express themselves during the toddler years and how parents can better match their own temperaments to their child's. Particular attention is given to the shy child and the very active child at this age. In addition, Lieberman gives new insights on how best to handle common toddler problems, such as sleep disturbances, sibling rivalry, and temper tantrums. She also provides invaluable information on the normal anxieties of this age and how to recognize when anxiety is excessive, needing special attention. Finally, she gives us a fresh, insightful picture of how toddlers typically handle the stress of their parents divorce and outside child care, and provides sensitive practical advice on easing the toddler through these transitions. The Emotional Life of the Toddler is an invaluable resource for parents, clinicians, researchers, and child-care workers alike.

What Are You Missing?Peter Scazzero learned the hard way: you can't be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. Even though he was pastor of a growing church, he did what most people do:Avoid conflict in the name of ChristianityIgnore his anger, sadness, and fearUse God to run from GodLive without boundariesEventually God awakened him to a biblical integration of emotional health, a relationship with Jesus, and the classic practices of contemplativespirituality. It created nothing short of a spiritual revolution, utterly transforming him and his church.In this book Scazzero outlines his journey and the signs of emotionally unhealthy spirituality. Then he provides seven biblical, reality-tested ways to break through to the revolutionary life Christ meant for you."The combination of emotional health and contemplative spirituality," he says, "unleashes the Holy Spirit inside us so that we might experientiallyknow the power of an authentic life in Christ."
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality integrates emotional health and contemplative spirituality that many current models of discipleship fail to address. Many sincere followers of Christ, those who are authentically passionate for God and engage in church activities such as participating in a small group and helping the poor in outreach services, are themselves in need of psychological and spiritual help; that is, even though many sincere Christians and Messianic Jews seem "mature" on the outside, inwardly they are spiritually immature and are severely struggling with interpersonal and unresolved emotional conflicts. This book offers psychological, biblical, and theological knowledge and strategies that will help Peter Scazzero's readers develop into emotionally-spiritually mature adults who will be able to live authentically and love God and each other. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: Unleash a Revolution in Your Life in Christ besides being a book with interest for the general reader is also being used as a textbook in Christian colleges and seminaries to teach the fundamentals of Psychology and Pastoral Theology.
