Good Enough Parenting

To build healthy and lasting parent-child relationships, parents need practical strategies that meet their child’s needs and the circumstances that affect their families. Written for parents of children from toddlers to teens, this book gives parents a science-based plan to help their children grow up to be emotionally healthy adults. A parent’s job unfolds and shifts over time. Concerns about sleep become worries about tantrums; anxieties about sharing become fears about grades and acting out in school. These concerns are natural, but many parents struggle to handle it all. Some feel drained, some lash out, and some feel like the worst parents in the world. This book might be time to recalibrate. This book aims to help unwind any confusion you may feel as a parent and create greater confidence as you embrace this fulfilling but challenging role.
