Based on Elizabeth Crary's STAR Parenting course for parents and caregivers, this book uses the points of a star to provide an outline of different strategies for handling both everyday and serious child guidance issues. Full of anecdotes with which readers will identify, it encourages parents to be creative in developing a variety of responses to children's actions. Crary, whose career has been built on the premise that there is no single correct way to parent, helps readers recognize how different temperaments and different development levels mean different approaches to child guidance.
