The Practice of Parenting - A Manual
A toolkit for helping to enable your child to thrive in a competitive world while ensuring they stay confident and happy in their own skin
by Larisa Sesterikov

How ambitious are you for your children to think independently, trust themselves, enjoy what they do, and achieve their goals? Do you want them to be successful, self-confident, and yet not entitled? Undoubtedly, the answer is yes. Most of us are not taught to parent or have been poorly parented ourselves, so how can we expect to parent well? In order to overcome this “parenting education deficit,” struggling parents often turn to books but end up with a pile next to their beds, each one describing only a small portion of what they require. Well, here’s a book that provides answers, the How do we do this? It covers care-giving from the womb all the way to when the child is ready to leave home. Inside, you’ll find well researched facts, revelatory tips, active practices to apply, and a huge array of examples, processes, and procedures on how to be the parent you want to be. What’s more, it’s a set of guidelines and tools you can give to any of your child’s caregivers as a manual to follow on how you’d like your children to be raised when you’re not around. In the style of the old computer manuals, in which a table of contents shows you where to look for what you need, The Practice of Parenting is a one-stop shop to help parents and caregivers resolve the myriad of issues they will encounter in child care, while providing a multitude of ways to help them cope.
