Parenting … A Work in Progress

Is it possible to raise well-adjusted children without losing your mind?

Parenting . . . A Work in Progress offers insightful strategies and humorous stories to guide seasoned, as well as new parents of children, newborn to adolescent.

Parenting has always been a trying job. Crypts found from the 11th century contain prayers from parents asking for help with their children. It’s the parents’ job to guide their children along the rocky road toward adulthood. Parenting . . . A Work in Progress can help you get there.

The five sections within this book cover elements of physical, cognitive, and social-emotional growth. In addition, each section contains chapters especially pertinent to that particular age group.

• The Infants and Toddlers section discusses potty training, temperament and attachment, prenatal drug use, and sleep disorders.

• The Early Childhood section covers play, discovery learning, behavior in public, nutrition, and teaching children about death.

• The Middle Childhood section includes self-esteem, parenting styles, love and friendship, and bullying.

• The Adolescence section covers organized thought, dreaming, peer pressure, eating disorders, and social media.

The information in the fifth section containing two chapters, “Divorce” and “Siblings,” pertains to all age groups. Many references for further reading are found within the body of the eBook and at the end of each section in print.
