Overview

Whether your child is two or thirty-two, The 7 Worst Things Good Parents Do will help you navigate the ins and outs of parenthood. Written by two practicing psychologists and parents of three grown children, this book provides thorough, practical ways to approach everyday situations, and will help you develop a strong, healthy, and vibrant foundation for your child.

The structured advice offered in this book is a result of years of personal and professional experience. Although parenting is an intricate and involved undertaking, you should never make the following seven basic mistakes:

  • Baby your child
  • Put your marriage last
  • Push your child into too many activities
  • Ignore your emotional or spiritual life
  • Be your child's best friend
  • Fail to give your child structure
  • Expect your child to fulfill your dreams
Small changes yield big results, and, as The 7 Worst Things Good Parents Do demonstrates, where there is a will, there is a way.

Before kids my husband and I read the Sunday paper, had coffee, went for peaceful walks -not so much anymore. I saw myself in the pages of this book. I often put the kids before us and our days are action packed with activities. I admit I read the summary at parentsdigest ¿ which is good because it¿s part of my new year¿s resolution to give myself and my husband more time just us. Lots of good ideas in this book ¿ most I¿ll bet you already intuitively know but it¿s worth the reinforcement

I just finished reading this book and it is very good. As a follower of our Lord Jesus Christ I was afraid it would contradict the Bible but it doesn't. Worth the time.
