Psychologist Recommends Detached Approach to Kids' Emotions

Alexandria, VA - November, 13 2012 - Psychologist and mom, Dr. Heidi Smith Luedtke, Ph.D., announces the launch of her new book, Detachment Parenting: 33 Ways to Keep Your Cool When Kids Melt Down.

PRLog - Nov. 13, 2012 - Parents often wonder how teachers, coaches and counselors keep calm when kids get out of control. Are they blessed with easygoing personalities? Or do they go home after work and drink themselves silly? Psychologist Heidi Smith Luedtke, Ph.D., says, "The secret is simple: Parents need to detach from kids' emotions and act like coping consultants."

In her just-released book, Detachment Parenting: 33 Ways to Keep Your Cool When Kids Melt Down, personality psychologist and mom, Dr. Heidi Smith Luedtke, gives parents access to the techniques child development pros use to dial down their own emotional responses, get perspective and coach kids through emotional minefields -- without loss of life, limbs, or sanity.

Detachment Parenting allows parents to take a responsive stance in heated situations and create a positive emotional climate each day. Parents learn how to talk to kids during heated moments, and how to nurture their own emotional health. Armed with Dr. Luedtke's stay-cool strategies, parents will be ready to take on any kid crisis that comes.

Detachment Parenting is available now in digital and paperback formats through http://www.Amazon.com, http://www.BarnesandNoble.com, and at http://www.HeidiLuedtke.com. Learn more at http://www.heidiluedtke.com/detachment-parenting or at http://www.facebook.com/detachmentparenting

She’s a proud Air Force wife and a regular contributor to Military Spouse magazine. In all that she writes, Heidi’s goal is to help others achieve personal growth, healthy relationships, and parenting success. She currently lives in Alexandria, Va., with her husband, two young kids and two scrappy dogs.
