Being a parent can be tough and there are times when you just don’t have all the answers. For parents who find themselves faced with a seemingly endless spiral of conflict, poor behaviour and ineffective discipline, this evidence-based parenting program is essential.

Divided into 12 sessions, Parenting for a Happier Home first focuses on developing a strong relationship between parent and child. Once a firm foundation of parenting principles has been developed, the program then moves onto effective discipline. The discipline program is designed to teach parents to cultivate their emotional intelligence, so that they can constructively and adaptively react to situations. It emphasises the importance of remaining secure, sensible and calm even in situations that can become emotionally charged.

For children with and without behavioural disorders such as ADHD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, or explosive and non-compliant behaviour, this book will help parents teach them to take ownership of their behaviour. The strategies can even be used a variety of the child’s environments (at home, at school, with grandparents, etc.). It’s a common-sense, practical guide to getting your kids back on track and creating a happier home!
