New Book Challenges Parents: Take A Fresh Look at Your Own Crap
Thomas Gagliano challenges parents to take ownership of and deal with their own crap thereby decreasing its negative impact on their children and families.
By: Thomas Gagliano
In Don’t Put Your Crap in Your Kid’s Diaper, Gagliano opens with a simple admission; When we [parents] think we’re doing our best, it can be unpleasant to hear someone say we can do better. Parenting may be the most difficult responsibility any of us will undertake. Even our best parenting efforts have distortions and can be improved.
Let’s face it; families today are met with challenges that generations before were not. More frequently both parents must work, having less time than ever to nurture their own intimate relationships and to parent. This often leads to grandparents and extended family members becoming primary caregivers. One-third of grandparents today are asked to step into the role of parent. Additionally, electronic entertainment by way of smartphones, video games and computers occupy much of our children’s attention. Families have become disconnected.
Gagliano peels back the layers and looks at how these dynamics can wear away at family bonds and offers strategies that parents can devise together to provide consistent and clear messages to children helping them develop into mature, healthy and conscientious adults.
At the end of Section One of his new book, Gagliano closes with a reflective quote from Colin Powell: If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Better parenting doesn’t have to be the result of major sweeping changes brought about all at once. It simply requires changes made through thoughtful, deliberate and consistent steps over time. This book belongs in the hands of every parent hoping to raise confident healthy children.

Excerpt from Don’t Put Your Crap in Your Kid’s Diaper
In a healthy family, the parents nurture each other's needs both emotionally and physically. There is no void to be filled by the child. The child senses this safety, and this produces a confident child who can focus on himself rather than feeling the need to fix a void in the parents' relationship. In essence, the child can be a child and nothing more. When there is a problem between the parents, the child senses things aren't OK at the top.
