Professional parent coach Sue Atkins has got the famous yellow and black Dummies seal of approval for this book, which is a comprehensive guide to improving your parenting skills. Full of practical hints, tips and advice, you don’t have to be a dummy to read the book.
Kids don’t come with a handbook, and Raising Happy Children for Dummies redresses this with useful parenting skills and techniques, which are both practical and manageable for every parent.
Some of the key issues covered in this book include: coping with the stresses of parenting; enforcing discipline and handling conflict; coping with key stages and changes in a child’s life such as divorce and step families, as well as issues such as bed wetting, phobias, Dyslexia, eating disorders and ADHD.
Sue draws her insight collectively from her wealth of experience as a parent, from her former position of deputy head teacher and from her career of running her successful parent coaching company, www.positive-parents.com.
Sue has a Diploma in Life Coaching and NLP Master Practitioner and Trainer status. She comments: “I help a large number of parents every day to resolve the problems and issues which come to light through daily family life. In many cases parents often just need a change in perspective or an understanding of the tools and techniques they can incorporate into parenting to make significant improvements on the lives of their families. I am therefore delighted to have been responsible for authoring the book that I now see as the ‘bible of parenting’ that every parent has long needed to assist them in improving their parenting abilities.”
