As a parent, you can’t do everything, no matter how hard you try: nobody can. Given that, how do you make sure to do the things that are most important? The things that’ll help your kids enjoy their childhoods and help them grow into healthy, confident, successful, happy adults? Nobody Told Me That! has the answers. Renowned parenting expert and author Roni Jay has studied what the most successful parents do and distilled those insights into 10 core principles: What you really need to do when you can’t possibly do it all. Roni Jay doesn’t just identify the principles you need to know: She covers the hard part–actually applying them in your own family. With Jay’s help, you’ll enjoy your kids more...they’ll enjoy you more...and they’ll grow up with the solid foundation they need to find their own paths, build their own lives, and thrive!

What your kids really need to learn and how to get it across

• Get your kids to think, lead–and even clean up their rooms

Build real grownups, one loving day at a time
