Good Enough Parenting – The Sensible Discipline Guide for New Parents – FREE

Good Enough Parenting – The Sensible Discipline Guide for New Parents
Lisl Fair
5 stars

Discipline is the one area in child rearing that often makes parents feel as if they are missing the mark. To be consistent in disciplining their children whilst juggling their other responsibilities is one of the most difficult tasks that parents will ever attempt. The bewildering array of discipline books, formulas and methods available often add to parents’ burdens instead of supplying practical ideas that can be customized to be implemented in their own households.

Good Enough Parenting – The Sensible Discipline Guide for New Parents doesn’t make any claims that children will be transformed in a couple of days, but it does provide parents with a framework from which they can make informed choices about discipline that suit their own parenting goals. It also helps parents understand how to strike a balance between their children’s needs and their own.

This guide book is helpful for parents who find prescriptive discipline methods limiting and wants to learn more about the essential elements in an effective discipline approach. The book contains a framework for effective discipline and a questionnaire to help parents identify areas of the discipline process in which they can still grow.


FREE Parenting Memoir

The Book of Jacob
Greg Fried (Author), Lisa Lazarus (Author)
5 stars

When Lisa and Greg embark on the life-changing journey of becoming parents, they discover that nothing could have prepared them for the overwhelming changes a baby would bring. In this candid and often amusing account of their child’s conception, birth and first year, they share their experiences of adjusting to life with a newborn. Parenthood affects every facet of Lisa and Greg’s previously serene and secure life as a couple, irrevocably altering their own relationship as well as their relationships with others.

Witty, warm and moving, this true-life story illuminates the frustrations, the joys and, above all, the love inspired by the birth of a child. The Book of Jacob is a startlingly honest, superbly adult and intelligent insight into the existential earthquake that is the arrival of a first child.

The examples and exercises target both the bullies and the bullied among us, and within us. The poetry and cartoons throughout the books are fun for parents and teachers, and immediately accessible to young readers.

“We’ve got to dispel the myth that bullying is just a normal rite of passage – that it’s some inevitable part of growing up. It’s not.” – President Barack Obama

Finally there is a simple-to-use book with solutions for bullying, not just focusing on the bullied children, but also the bullies themselves. The book never talks down to either group, teaching the reader to be empowered and act assertively, not aggressively or passively.
