Not all parenting styles are effective. This book will help you better understand your current style of parenting and assess your effectiveness in raising your child to become a purposeful, productive and moral adult of whom you can be proud. The author offers a description of The Basics, which is described as an authoritative parenting style (not Authoritarian) which will allow you to help your child acquire two significant patterns of behavior: your child will learn to embrace a desire to grow and mature as well as learn to value guidance and direction from his or her parent(s). This parenting style and these two acquired patterns of behavior will enable your child to transition from being a dependent infant to a responsible, independent successful adult while you move from a nurturing parent who exercises parental authority effectively to a parent who is coach, friend and encourage to his or her adult child. It doesn’t get any better than this!
