For the parent-child interaction, there are no textbooks, no written tests, no diplomas and degrees – only experience, life’s many demands, and finally the satisfaction of strong and loving bonds. ABCs of Parenting echoes many of the concerns of everyday parenting. The book offers suggestions, solutions, and most importantly, food for thought – for all those for whom being a parent or a godparent is a demanding, dynamic and hugely rewarding role.
The book touches on various age groups, from toddler to teenager. Written by a family counsellor who is also a writer and editor, each topic provides key insights on a wide range of topics. There’s literally something for every letter of the alphabet: from A for Apologies to Z for Zombies. ABCs of Parenting holds many Universal Truths that are contained within us all but are often forgotten in the hurly-burly of everyday parenting. Devoid of jargon and judgements, the book is an enjoyable as well as illuminating read, cover to cover.
