The Practical Guide to Raising Emotionally Healthy Children by Dr. Nekeshia Hammond is a well written and essential guide for anyone who has had a helping hand in raising a child. This goes for parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, baby sitters, partners of single parents, etc. She describes how you should open the lines of communication between the child and the person who is guiding them. That means listening to as well as informing the child in a way that makes it comfortable for both parties, albeit the topic is sex, drugs, smoking, relationships etc. Although these subjects are usually the first ones brought up by most children, Dr. Hammond includes just about everything that might be brought up as well.
Dr. Nekeshia Hammond's approach is an easy and refreshing way to educate parents, etc. about how to comfortably open up and talk about all of the different questions that a child might ask. I can relate to this because I myself have been asked about certain subjects concerning sex and drugs by sub teenagers while eating dinner in a crowded restaurant. I wish that I had had a copy of this book when those precious moments arrived. I'm sure that many adults and even baby sitters in the high school ranks can identify with those awkward situations, when they appear without any forewarning. This book would be perfect as a textbook for teenage girls that take baby sitting certification classes. Thank you, Dr. Hammond, for The Practical Guide to Raising Emotionally Healthy Children, a guide that everyone should own. Well done!
