Busy parents, rejoice! How we parent matters, and we can all be better parents by working at it, step by step, in an intentional way. This deeply held conviction inspired Meg Akabas to write 52 Weeks of Parenting Wisdom: Effective Strategies For Raising Happy, Responsible Kids.
Rather than overwhelm parents with psychological studies and theories, the book features relatable family scenarios and easy to implement tips. Intended for busy parents, it is meant to be read one chapter per week for just a few minutes at a time, with each chapter providing a salient piece of advice on one specific topic of concern to parents, such as respect, self-control, cooperation, sibling relations, and sleep habits. Unlike other parenting books, it mercifully lets parents concentrate on making a single change in their parenting that is attainable and effective. 52 Weeks of Parenting Wisdom: Effective Strategies For Raising Happy, Responsible Kids is real guidance you can use with your children today.
