Welcome! I’m Heidi Smith Luedtke, the psychologist next door. As a personality psychologist and writer, I specialize in helping others understand themselves better and build people- and parenting-skills that make life more fun and more fulfilling. I’m glad you stopped by and hope you’ll find information that inspires and educates. Help is closer than you think: You’ve got a psychologist next door.
I’m excited to share my new e-book, Detachment Parenting: 33 Ways to Keep Your Cool When Kids Melt Down. It’s available NOW for Amazon Kindle, Barnes&Noble’s Nook, Kobo e-readers, in PDF and in paperback! In Detachment Parenting, you’ll get access to the same techniques teachers, coaches and counselors use to keep calm and get perspective so they can help kids build healthy coping skills. You’ll learn to take a responsive stance in heated situations and create a positive emotional climate each day. Armed with these stay-cool strategies, you’ll be ready to handle any kid crisis that comes. If you want all the joys of parenting with a lot less stress, this e-book is for you.
