How we parent matters, and we can all be better parents by working at it step by step. Meg Akabas builds on this philosophy, providing easy-to-implement strategies in once-a-week chapters that you can read in just a few minutes. Each chapter provides a salient piece of advice on one specific topic such as: respect, self-control, cooperation, sibling relations, or sleep habits. Rather than overwhelm with psychological studies and theories, this book helps busy parents make attainable and effective changes in their parenting. For any parent overwhelmed by parenting advice overload, 52 Weeks of Parenting Wisdom offers real guidance you can use with your children today.
