Building on the success of the 20 000 sales of the Terrific Toddlers books, this new book has updated and expanded the original books and added key sections in each chapter for parenting the school years (ages 5 to 12) and the teen years (ages 13+).
Each short and easy-to-read chapter highlights practical activities you can include in a day that will promote the foundational skill of self-control. Once this is established, virtues such as kindness, cheerfulness, helpfulness, patience, obedience and sibling friendships can be established in the heart of your child.
The book will help you equip your child for adulthood, encourage them to make right choices for the right reasons, and give you confidence and direction in your parenting so you can enjoy your toddler, school age child, and yes, even yuor teen.
The book features a Dad-to-Dad section, a chapter of information on Cyber-parenting, 50 real questions from real parents with specific answers, and both parent and teen testimonies throughout.
