Summary

Are you tired of constantly worrying about whether you're raising your children the right way? Or perhaps you are struggling with behavior issues? If yes, then this guide is for you.

"An indispensable guide to modern parenting." (Stephanie Elliott, The Times)

Raising physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy children has never been more difficult.

In the past, the influences a child was exposed to were limited, directly observable and could be controlled, but with the growth of technology, the proliferation of social media and the general air of growing paranoia and divide in today's society, parenting has become a challenge with far too many ways things could go wrong...if you are not on your toes and prepared.

“....and then, finally, a book comes along which is perfect for parents in this modern era.” (Jessica Hynde, author and speaker)

In The Positive Parenting Guide, Tina Faber highlights with lucid explanation why traditional forms of parenting are ineffective, and in some cases, even harmful. You with be furnished with all the tools you need to raise your kids in the best way.

“A superb book, interesting, educational and undeniably helpful.” (Gemma Gallagher, Researcher)

Filled with field-tested methods and complete with candid stories and case studies, The Positive Parenting Guide is a book that belongs in the bookshelf of every parent and will help you teach, communicate with and instill discipline in your kids while bolstering their confidence and making parenting an enjoyable experience.

Now this was EXCELLENT

Heard about this book on a podcast, sounded interesting but have to admit it was even better than I expected.

I like it was realistic - appealed to actually everyday parents, all very genuine and helpful advice. Very good, recommended for all parents.

Parenting...better

Nobody likes to be told how to be a parent but I do believe we all need HELP sometimes. This is what I got here. Not being told what to do, just gently nudged in the right direct with extremely valuable advice.

Mother of two approves!

As a mother of two (1 year old and 6 year old) I found this book to be very valuable. Helped me deal with some discipline issues and just basically how to be a better, kinder and CALMER parent. Well produced, easy to follow and packed full of advice.

Helped me with my kid

Helped me to realise what a good parent actually is and how to deal with bringing up a child in this new modern world. Gave it 4 stars out of 5 for "story", because I don't understand that category. Its not a story, its a non-fiction book.
