THE COACHING GUIDE:

From Lendon H. Smith, M.D., Portland, Oregon:

"Thank you for the opportunity to read Dr. Gaffney’s Coaching Guide for Better Parents and Stronger Kids. I was delighted to find that finally there is a user’s guide. All of us need help to rear our children. This is the manual we have been looking for. Pediatricians, obstetricians, and general practitioners should pas this out to their patients at their first contact. This guide does not encourage strictness nor leniency in child rearing. It is neither conservative nor liberal. It promotes sanity and fairness.

"…I had thought that Haim Ginott told us everything that we needed to know about setting up parent-child dialogue, but Dr. Gaffney’s "pass the tile" method is a winner for defusing tensions. She gives us options. She has wonderful examples of working through confrontations without getting or being killed
.
"I have a short attention span, so I loved the short chapters. I did not get burdened down with rambling explanations of Freudian concepts. The P-K triangles is exactly right to get us parents to see the total picture and help us get through the adventure of child-rearing so we can get on with our own lives.

"The trick of child-rearing is to have some fun with this adventure, and launch your children so that they are reasonably non-neurotic and call you on your fortieth anniversary to wish you well. This book tells you how."


From Sarah Knotts, Executive Director Big Brother and Sisters of Arlington, TX:

"Dr. Gaffney’s Coaching Guide should be basic training for every parent. It is clear, concise, written in easy terms, and provides easy-to-follow directions to assess parents’ values and beliefs. Armed with that knowledge, it becomes much easier to interact with our children, challenge them to be their best, and most importantly, have the strength to own problems with the proper amount of parent guidance.

"In this age of codependency, this philosophy provides hop that we can raise children who function appropriately and who will be able to take the leadership reigns of this world as they move into adulthood.

"Further, Big Brothers and Sisters of Arlington, Texas, plans to use most, if not all, of the material in this book as the curriculum for parent training which will be implemented in 1997. We are confident that the single parents and their children will be much more in charge of their lives using Dr. Gaffney’s common sense and sound approach. In my 16 year tenure with this agency, I have not seen any approach as sound as Dr. Gaffney’s.

"I heartily endorse this challenging and effective coaching process."


From Jim, parent of 2 adolescents:

"I love your book. It's so practical!"


From Mary Jo, parent and an executive coach:

"Dr. Gaffney gets to the heart of real parenting challenges.  She even devises an easy to get formula to help parents determine what's going on before they "lose it". Dr. Gaffney gives us permission as parents to look deep into the secrets of our familys' past ... to uncover the forces that shape us as parents. She even presents us with the parent/kids triangles ... a helping guide to assist parents in relating better to our children. The concepts and hands-on exercises created and explored by Dr. Gaffney get to the heart of real parenting challenges and helps us devise solutions in a more effortless manner."



PARENTING SEMINAR & LECTURE:

Pat Baker, Oak Bend Hospital, Fort Worth, TX:

One word best describes your lecture for us last evening, and that word is

O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G!

Seriously, everyone we've talked with said that this was one of the best lectures they'd heard in a long time and it provided plenty of "substance" for them to take home and utilize.



RELAXATION & MEDITATION COMPANION:

The soothing voice of Dr. Gaffney and the way she presents the exercises helps me keep perspective on things that bug me during the day. I now take the time I need for myself – to calm down, relax, and be more effective." - Sales Executive

The Coaching Guide for Relaxation and Meditation is one of the most helpful tools for teaching the relaxation response… It clearly describes the nature of the relaxation response, how stress in our daily lives affects us adversely, and the role of breathing which is the foundation for altering our physiology." - A neuropsychiatrist
