Mark Le Messurier has just finished writing RAISING BEAUT KIDS with his friend and colleague Bill Hansberry, and together, they want to ignite your thinking about how you choose to parent!
In writing the Foreword, Australia's favourite and highly acclaimed psychologist, Andrew Fuller says -
"The ingredients of mixing sane parents with positive kids and ending up with a great family is a challenging business. Not all kids respond to the same approaches. Effective parents need to shift their parenting gears every so often.
We all slip into reactive parenting from time to time. Take a deep breath, stop what you're doing and inject, devour and enjoy this book.
In RAISING BEAUT KIDS, Mark and Bill have whipped up a smorgasbord of ideas that will leave you and your family more positive and happier."
Each chapter - to view the CONTENTS click here - offers a typical tricky scenario that parents often face at home with their children and young teens - accompanied with the ingredients that usually fire things up! Then, they offer a set of 'Recipe rescues' as an optimistic problem solver; a practical way to respond to kids when they serve up those awkward and tricky behaviours.
BEAUT KIDS don't just happen! Children look to parents to show steady judgement, compassionate leadership and the capacity to develop predictable boundaries and routines. Sometimes a simple tweak to our emotional response can make a big, big difference! So come on, take the challenge with us; RAISING BEAUT KIDS has as much to do with our relationship with them as it has to do with shaping their behaviour - the two go hand in hand. Parents deserve honesty so there's no tiptoeing around the issues in this book because our children are too precious to compromise!
RAISING BEAUT KIDS is priced at $34.95 and PARENTING TOUGH KIDS is $35
