Raise Your Children but Not Your Voice (e-Book)
In her first parenting e-book, Raise Your Children But Not Your Voice, parenting expert Barbara Desmarais puts her 17 years of education, training and parenting to good use. In this well-organized, attractive e-book, Desmarais shares a multitude of solid parenting tips and success secrets. At the same time, she is careful to point out that each child is different, and her suggestions should be applied as appropriate to each individual child.
This insightful, easy-to-read e-book includes tips for childproofing your environment, offering choices, and effectively communicating with your child. The parenting expert continues with more in-depth advice in her discussions of logical and natural consequences, acknowledging positive behavior, and focusing on what really matters. Desmarais completes her advice by explaining the importance of taking care of the child’s parent (aka YOU) and not feeling guilty for having to say “no.”
