The Parent’s Toolkit was published in February 2012 by Vermillion, Random House.
It was written for parents to help their children successfully navigate childhood problems and grow up into happy, confident and resilient young adults.
The Parent’s Toolkit is aimed at parents with children aged 6+ and is divided into the most important areas of a child’s life such as friendships, sibling relationships, secondary school transition, self-esteem, confidence etc. It is packed with real-life case studies taken from my coaching sessions and provides tools to help parents initiate conversation with their children and address any worries or issues that their child may be struggling with. It has lots of creative ideas for parents to help their children solve their problems and is written in a very down to earth way.
The book includes teaching children positive self-talk, simple problem-solving techniques, challenging negative thoughts, how to make and keep friends, how to raise self-esteem etc. and gives parents specific advice as to how to hone their own listening and coaching skills.
I am proud to say that the book was in the top 10 for books for over a month at several Waterstone stores when it was released.
