Today a keyword search for books on ‘parenting’ at Amazon.com will net you 61,181 titles to choose from. Publishers are tapping into the struggle of modern day parents in their search for a quick fix to sleep problems, a simple formula for fussy eating or an ABC for handling behavioural issues.
Unfortunately there is no quick fix. Or simple formula. Or ABC.
Positive, effective parenting takes time and effort.
Which is why it is great to find a title which offers sensible, practical parenting information; an e-book which is easy to read, relevant and offers strategies and real life examples for guiding children’s behaviour. And this is exactly what Parenting with Positive Guidance by Amanda Morgan delivers.
Amanda isn’t about one size fits all solutions. Parenting with Positive Guidance is about laying good groundwork for positive behaviour guidance and then parenting from the ground up. As an experienced educator, an expert in child development and a mother of three, Amanda brings together expert information, and practical experience from the classroom and motherhood, and presents it in a manner which is easy for parents to access, to use and to succeed with.
The e-book is divided into three sections;
- Part 1: The philosophy of positive guidance
- Part 2: 10 tools for encouraging positive behaviour while building self discipline
- Part 3: Making it work for your family
As a teacher I know this stuff but as a parent sometimes the emotions, the fatigue, and the stress of living this modern day family life gets in the way of being positive and effective, especially when it comes to managing the behaviour of one just-turned-three-year-old-who-knows-her-own-mind. Fortunately reading Parenting with Positive Guidance has encouraged me to re-stock my toolbox of behaviour guidance strategies and I am sure that it will do the same for you.

Amanda also writes with passion about the importance of early education on her blog, Not Just Cute. She is definitely someone I would love to meet in real life, to sit and share a coffee with, musing over life as we know it. Hopefully she has plans to visit Australia someday soon 😉
