Parenting 101 - New Book

Project 2013-02-04 01:47:31 +1300

I am in the finishing stages of a new book which I am calling 'Parenting 101 - A Must Have Behavioural Guide for Parents' (approx 330 pages long, Royal size paperback). This book is the result (to date) of a project I called 'The Parent Licence', which is aimed at reducing child neglect and abuse in New Zealand. We hear lots of talk from all quarters of society saying they will do this and do that to reduce the rate of abuse and neglect, but then very little actually seems to happen. 

This book is aimed at new and struggling parents. It will empower them with knowledge about how to positively manage and change their child's difficult behaviour. How to model appropriate behaviours and be a role model so that their children will aspire to be like them. The book also contains basic information on how to budget (and why), where and when to seek help, stories from mothers and fathers who may have struggled but overcame their struggle with parenthood. Plus, lots more advice that will enable parents to know at least the basics about raising children. 

I can't guarantee this book will reduce neglect and abuse, but I believe it will help some, and even if it is only a handful of children saved from living an otherwise miserable life - it is all worth while. 

I have written two books before, along with other specialist behavioural resources (These can be found on www.behaviourskills.com)

I hope you will show your support and make a statement to the rest of NZ by your contribution to the project. I need $4000 to market / advertise the book, and to get a first print done of at least 200 books for Libraries and others. All other orders will be printed as per demand. Books will be available to purchase as eBooks (at an affordable $6) and hard copies via online order at around $20. Please help to make this first step in helping to reduce abuse and neglect through parent education a reality.
