Does it ever feel like kids these days are in control of their parents?

Having a strong sense of yourself as a parent is key to raising a resilient, independent, thoughtful, and solution-focused child. But over the last several generations, parents have been immersed in the well-intentioned idea that parenting should be child-centered rather than adult-centered. Many parents have begun to follow their children’s lead rather than insist that children adapt to parental prerogatives. Parental authority has come to be seen as a bad thing.

The eight keys presented in this book focus on valuing your own authority as a parent: cultivating your child’s character, applying discipline instead of punishment, strategies to motivate compliance, fostering emotional development, solving problems, conflict management, and effective communication. They will help parents feel good about themselves, take initiative, have a strong moral compass, and raise self-directed children who are active learners.
