You’ve never read a child-rearing book like The Parenting Toolkit. Each of the ten chapters is built around an imaginary tool that was created to teach you a vitally important parenting skill. These magical tools have been devised to illustrate the principles used to solve common, everyday problems — everything from power struggles and sibling fighting to sleep problems and fussy eating.
Parents often find that parenting books don’t paint a clear enough picture of how to apply strategies. They may think the ideas are interesting but as soon as they try to put them into practice, they quickly become discouraged.
What they really need is a how-to guide that walks them through the ideas step-by-step. How might their child react? How long will it take before the new approach makes a difference? What are the pitfalls to watch out for? And what specifically should be said or not said? The Parenting Toolkit gives you all this and more, with approaches that are grounded in proven psychological theory – it knows what makes kids tick.
