I have been a fan of Ken Blanchard for many many years. He helped me with the One Minute Manager when I was a young executive. Well he has now teamed up with a great group of trainers to give us Whale Done Parenting. First I have to say that I think we all can use parenting help. Kids do not come with owners manuals (and some should). And there is all sorts of ways to help children become healthy adults. Here is a book to share positive parenting techniques for you and your kids. Here we start with killer whale trainer-in-training Amy Sheldrake, who is able to get a killer whale to preform amazing tricks but had a hard time getting her own son to do simple task. So Amy and her husband started using the same principals that they used on killer whales on their own son. Once Amy and Matt were able to get the hang of the five Whale Done principles, they then saw a dramatic difference in overcoming challenges like following bedtime routines, dealing with tantrums, introducing new foods, sharing, avoiding overuse of the word no, learning to care for a pet, and instituting time-outs. Isn't this something we all would like to have a handle on?
