Future Proofing Your ChildI stumbled across an article about a new book that is coming out this week. I love parenting books and this one seems to sit well with my values and what I believe in parenting. I choose not to shout at my children. I am not not perfect so it does happen occasionally but not often. I also choose not to bribe my children or give out threats as I like my children to do what I ask (the first or second time) and see the benefits in what I am asking (sharing the benefits or the outcome work for me). I actually want them to do things for themselves and to help other members of the family especially without asking. These things are important to me and everyone who is parenting will have a different set of values – things they want to happen at home. My values are quite different to my friends.

From the sounds of this book it seems to sit well with what I do and believe and not all parenting books do. I believe in teaching children responsibility early and starting young when it comes to self-discipline. These are skills that they are going to need later on in life and I believe it is harder to teach when older – although not impossible. I like the sounds of this book and will definately be buying it. I think when it comes to parenting boos you can never have to many and I like to pick and choose what I take from each book and implement anything new that I learn. Parenting is a journey and we are constantly learning how to raise children.

Have a read of the article and see if it is the kind of parenting style you use or aspire to use.
