Sidestep the 10 Most Common Parenting Traps

"A great read! Unique and practical. A terrific guide for any parent."

Marcus. J. Goldman, M.D., author of The Joy of Fatherhood

Even though parents have the best intentions for their kids, they sometimes fall into parenting traps that can hinder their children's healthy growth. As this wise and practical book explains, the key to avoiding these pitfalls is to realize that being a parent is not something you are, it is something you do.

Author Kevin Steede, a psychologist and father, shows you how to develop effective parenting skills and become actively involved in the lives of your children. You'll learn the hidden power of consistency, constructive discipline, open communication, and a positive attitude.

Anyone can be a great parent. It just takes the desire to make parenting a priority in your life and knowing the strategies and skills outlined in this book.

Synopsis:

Outlining the ten ultimate "No-No's" for parenting, Dr. Steede discusses how to avoid these common, predictable, and preventable parent traps that have such negative outcomes. Each chapter includes a self-test to reinforce those principles to parents. 160 pp.
