Bestselling authors and founders of the STEP program Dr. Don Dinkmeyer and Dr. Gary McKay have helped millions of parents raise confident and caring children. Here, they combine new insights and time-honored wisdom to tackle such current - and crucial - issues as stepparenting, the "new" nuclear family, drugs, sex, and AIDS. Raising a Responsible Child will teach you such vital skills as understanding your children's behavior - and misbehavior; building your child's self-esteem through encouragement; using discipline methods that make your child, not you, responsible for behavior; listening to your children and respecting their feelings and opinions; and helping your child develop decision-making skills.
