Raising secure and confident kids using best parenting practices from the past.
Does it ever seem to you like kids these days are in control of their parents?
Having a strong sense of yourself as a parent is key to raising a resilient, independent, thoughtful, and solution-focused child. But over the last several generations, parents have been immersed in the well-intentioned idea that parenting should be child-centered rather than adult-centered. Many parents have begun to follow their children's lead rather than insist that children adapt to parental prerogatives. Parental authority has come to be seen as a bad thing.
The 8 keys presented in this book focus on valuing your own authority as a parent; cultivating your child's character; applying discipline instead of punishment; strategies to motivate compliance; fostering emotional development; problem-solving; conflict management; and effective communication. They will help parents raise self-directed children who are active learners, feel good about themselves, take initiative, and have a strong moral compass.
