"This book takes a no-holds barred look at the many issues modern parents are dealing with, such as whether to smack, time-outs, discipline and what to do with a defiant teen. I finished reading & am going to start again - and again - until ALL OF these things I should know sink into my thick head. I love the easy techniques - the common sense approach & I admit I need to break some of MY bad habits to apply them." - Kidspot

How would you feel if your home was peaceful and filled with laughter and love instead of arguments and disrespect?
What if there was a way to end all the arguing, whining, backchatting and rudeness in your family in just a few weeks?
The 5 Keys parenting system shows parents how to easily combine the firm, clear boundaries of traditional parenting with the more involved and affectionate style of modern parenting. Yet the methods by which these goals are achieved revolve around just 5 simple principles! From toddlers to teens, educator Sue Edgerley serves it up with the insight that only another parent can have. It is a sometimes confronting, but always engaging read, and a must for new parents as well as parents who want to feel empowered again.
5 Keys Parenting has been featured on national television, newspapers and radio talk shows.
