Your children are listening : nine messages they need to hear from you by Jim Taylor( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in French and English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through lack of awareness, misguided intentions, self-interest, baggage, or just plain unhealthy values, parents can fail to consider the messages their attitudes and behaviours are sending to their children. And those who never pause to do so risk sending messages that interfere with their children's healthy development. "Your Children Are Listening" equips parents in two ways: First, it attunes them to the value of staying 'on message', helps them identify the messages that are most important to them, and illuminates the ways they convey those messages (and the ways children can misunderstand them). Second, parenting author, speaker, and expert Dr. Taylor shares his own nine essential messages to set children on the path to happy and well-adjusted adulthood. Dr. Taylor's nine positive messages focus on love, safety, competence, generosity, gratitude, environment, respect, responsibility, and emotions - each of which comes with fun, toddler-friendly catchphrases, rituals, and games parents can use to foster these values in their young children"--Publisher description

How to survive and thrive when bad things happen : 9 steps to cultivating an opportunity mindset in a crisis by Jim Taylor( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few of us go through life without experiencing some sort of crisis, whether health, financial, relationship, career, or personal safety. Crises happen and they are often out of our control. But the one thing we can control is how we respond to them. Yet, our natural instincts often hinder us as we confront today's crises that are complex, amorphous, and not readily solvable. Changing our reaction to a crisis is an immense challenge, yet with powerful lessons provided in these pages, anyone can turn crises into opportunities for reflection, positive action, and growth. A crisis mentality can overwhelm you when bad things happen. Turning crises into opportunities empowers you to overcome the darkness that can engulf you in troubled times and allow you to seek the light that can guide you through hard times. Exploring the essential psychological, emotional, and interpersonal factors that most impact your reaction to a crisis, Jim Taylor provides you with deep insights and practical tools that help you move from a crisis mentality of fear, pessimism, and panic that controls you to an opportunity mindset of calm, confidence, and courage that you control in a crisis. He offers compelling examples, both recent and historical, well-known and unfamiliar, to bring these issues to life. Illustrations from government, large and small business, and ordinary people will highlight who responded well and who did not. Break free from the crisis mentality and embrace an opportunity mindset with nine strategies that will not only help you to survive, but actually thrive, when bad things happen"--
