All children will be ‘hard work’, ‘difficult’ or ‘challenging’ at times. This book is intended to give you the tools you need to navigate your way through your child’s middle years (ages six to twelve) and beyond with assertiveness, decisiveness, confidence, empathy and compassion.
You will learn how to be a skilful parent and be provided with strategies that have been proven to work. They are not the magic solution to all your difficulties, but rather, a solid set of tools to help you create structure, peace and stronger outcomes for your child over time.
