About the Book

Raising responsible kids requires responsible parents. However, many parents, even the most devoted, lack a full understanding of the concept of responsibility and the importance of gaining this understanding. In The Robinson Way, Dr. James J. Cunningham presents a unique child rearing philosophy and a comprehensive discussion of all aspects of the parenting process.

He gives definitive suggestions and specific recommendations to enhance a child’s growth and development into a happy, productive, and successful adult. Cunningham, who has worked with children, adolescents, and families for several decades, discusses:

responsibility, discipline, honesty, and love;
intelligent parenting;
families as systems;
family of origin scale;
psychosocial development;
The Robinson Way;
choices and habits; and
overparenting and how to avoid it.

Providing a comprehensive overview of parenting from both a theoretical and clinical perspective, The Robinson Way offers an informative resource. It is designed to help parents become more competent and confident in their actions.
