A Positive, Proven Approach to Single Parenting!

As a single parent in our complex world, you face the challenge of doing alone a job that was meant for two people. In addition, self-doubt and guilt may dampen the joy you experience raising your child. What do you do?

In this completely revised and updated edition of Positive Discipline for Single Parents you'll learn how to succeed as a single parent in the most important job of your life: raising a child who is responsible, respectful, and resourceful.

Inside this reassuring book, you'll discover how to:

·Identify potential problems and develop skills to prevent them
