The Parenting Primer

A guide to positive parenting in the first six years

Authored by Michelle Carchrae

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to parent without rewards, punishments or bribes? Maybe you've heard about gentle discipine or positive parenting and wondered what you would actually DO instead of spanking, counting to three or using time outs?

The Parenting Primer is a guide to the main ideas and strategies used in gentle discipline. It will show you how attachment works to create harmony in families, empowering you to parent in a postive, creative way.

The Parenting Primer begins by looking at how love and limits influence our parenting, then explores other topics that affect our relationships with our children, such as information on brain development or personality, communication skills, lifestyle choices, creativity and self-discipline.

Each chapter contains several references to additional parenting resources for those who want to dig deep in a particular area. Each chapter ends with some questions to inspire reflection and something to actually try in your real life. Stories and tidbits from the author's own personal experience struggling to improve her parenting skills are woven throughout the book.
