No wonder the divorce rate hovers around fifty percent. Bestselling author and marriage counselor Gary Chapman hopes to change that with his newest book.

It's the type of information Gary himself wished he had before he got married. The material lends itself to heart-felt discussions by dating or engaged couples. To jump-start the exchanges, each short chapter includes insightful "Talking it Over" questions and suggestions. And, the book includes information on interactive websites as well as books that will enhance the couples experience.<br /><br />Dr. Chapman even includes a thought-provoking appendix. By understanding and balancing the five key aspects of life, dating couples can experience a healthy relationship. A revealing learning exercise is included at the end.

Description :  Biti družaben ne pomeni le navezovati stike, klepetati ali nekaj skupaj ustvarjati, ampak izkazovati pozornost in sočutje do drugih z očesnim stikom in s pogovorom.

Težava niso zasloni kot taki, ampak njihova pretirana uporaba.<br /><br /> V tej knjigi boste izvedeli:&#xa0;<br /> - zakaj pametni telefoni, televizorji, računalniki in tablice otroke tako privlačijo in kaj je pri tem problematično,<br /> - kako digitalni zasloni vplivajo na otroške možgane,<br /> - kako videoigre vplivajo na otrokovo izražanje jeze,<br /> - kako pomagati otrokom premagati plahost, da bodo znali navezovati stike v resničnem svetu,&#xa0;<br /> - kako otroka vzgajati za hvaležnost, sočutje, opravičevanje,<br /> - kaj lahko naredite, da otroku pomagate ohranjati pozornost, ko mu je to težko,<br /> - ustvarjalne ideje, s katerimi lahko zaposlite otroka brez uporabe zaslonov,<br /> - koristne nasvete za vas, da si boste vrnili svojo starševsko avtoriteto in boste otrokom zgled.&#xa0;<br /><br /> Nikoli ni prepozno, da bi spremenili vaše družinsko življenje!&#xa0;<br /><br /> <b><i>»Zasvojenost nikoli ne pride kot strela z jasnega, ampak se razvija. Če smo na odnose v svoji družini pozorni, opazimo, kdaj se je začela plaziti okoli nas, pa nas še ni ugriznila in nas tudi ne bo, saj se lahko z njo spopademo s pozornimi in predanimi odnosi. Naj vam knjiga pomaga verjeti, da ste za svoje otroke starši najboljši!«&#xa0;</i></b><br /><br /> <b>dr. Andreja Poljanec, spec. zakonske in družinske terapije</b>
