Description - Parenting: A Practical Guide To Raising Preschool And Primary-School Children by Kathy Walker

Baby Love for the parents of preschool and school-age children.

Does your child have trouble settling at bedtime? Refuse to sit at the table for meals? Ignore you or argue when you say it's time to turn off the TV?

Expert parenting and educational consultant Kathy Walker recognises that being a parent is one of the most rewarding jobs you will ever do but that it isn't always easy. In this book she shows you how to create a calmer, more nurturing home environment for you and your children, and gives you her top strategies for managing challenging behaviour.

She helps you to understand your parenting style, and the reasons behind your child's behaviour, and gives insightful tips on-
- setting up and maintaining routines
- promoting self-esteem and resilience
- communicating with your child.

Using case studies and concrete examples, Kathy offers advice on handling everyday family situations such as constant fighting between siblings and hassling for the latest gadgets / a new pet / more pocket money, as well as challenges related to school, friendships and separated or blended families.

Down-to-earth and reassuring, this is the must-have guidebook for all Australian parents of preschool and school-age children.
