I am so excited to bring your attention to another must-read parenting book by L.R. Knost. The third in her Little Hearts Handbook series (the first two were Two Thousand Kisses a Day, and Whispers Through Time), The Gentle Parent gets right to the heart of parenting and disciplining gently: with cooperation, communication, and connection. While I wholeheartedly recommend that you read – and implement – all three, you needn’t have read the first two in order to read this one!
As she did with her first two books, Knost presents her information in a clear, easy-to-read conversational style, in short little chapters that are perfect for busy parents. Using both a wealth of facts and her own tried and true personal experience, she takes the reader’s hand and guides her through all those tricky moments that trip up even the best of parents. Always keeping your relationship with your child as the utmost of importance, she shows you why punishment is not the answer, and how you can gently and kindly deal with such issues as:
~ A toddler who is hitting, kicking, and biting
~ Parenting in public
~ Strong-willed children
~ What it really means when a child is acting out
~ Teens who are hurting
And so much more! This little book is FULL of information that you can begin implementing in your household right now…. information that will help you have a happier, closer, more peaceful relationship with your child.
It is simply a must read. And you can pick up the Kindle edition for less than the cost of a Starbucks coffee drink. And that’s not all.
Today Only! You can get the accompanying Gentle Parenting Workshop on Kindle for FREE.
