Overview

Warm, wise, tough, and funny, "The Golden Rules of Parenting" asks readers to consider the question, "What might help me if I were that child?" Instead of rigid "should-dos," this gentle guide invites parents to choose solutions to behavioral problems based on both the individuality of the child and the respect and understanding they both deserve. From infancy to young adulthood, in these pages, parents and professionals learn how to custom-fit solutions to the child, not the behavior problem, and suggests the parallels between adult behavior and that of children. Rita Boothby shows how professional therapists and counselors draw solutions to problems from the clients themselves, not just from textbooks. She guides parents through the same process with their own children. This book is a must-have for all parents, grandparents, and everyone who works with children.

Few words with lots to think about. Mrs. Boothby provokes the reader into common sense thinking on a multitude of child raising topics that will work well in any family.

Rita Boothby brought childraising to us using the traditional values of our parents and addressing the treacherous drug and sex problems of today with to-the-point, excellent advice. As a mother of five and grandmother of thirteen, I believe this book is a must-have book for all mothers.

This little book is chocked full of poignant, wise, witty and, most important, immediately useful insights about how to improve our relationships with our kids. I enjoyed it tremendously--many of the tips and stories touched me deeply. I will re-read it often and recommend it to other parents struggling to raise children while navigating their own busy lives.
