Book Description

A brand new collection of great parenting advice -- fun, non-judgmental, and amazingly helpful!


3 great books help you become a better, happier parent… and raise happier, less stressed, more successful children!


When it comes to parenting, nobody’s perfect, nobody can do it all, and nobody can guarantee results. Not you. Not anyone. So, how do you do the things you can do? The things most likely to help your children enjoy their lives, and grow into healthy, confident, successful, happy adults? These three books bring together invaluable advice: help that’s fun, friendly, non-judgmental, realistic, and above all, useful! Richard Templar’s The Rules of Parenting, Expanded Edition serves up 100+ flexible tips and adaptable “Rules” for your family, starting with the most important Rule of them all: RELAX. Here’s all you need to know from toddler to first boyfriend/girlfriend, driving lessons through college and beyond… help with attitude, discipline, siblings, school, teenage life, crises, “grown” children… and above all, staying sane! Next, in Nobody Told Me That!, Roni Jay offers great advice for raising kids who are more confident, resilient, ethical, loving, competent, responsible, fulfilled, engaged, and enthusiastic. Jay identifies what the most successful parents do, distills those insights into 10 core principles, and shows how to actually apply them in your own family. Finally, in How Your Child Thinks, world-renowned child psychologist Dr. Stephen Briers goes inside your child’s mind, and helps you give them the skills, tactics, and strategies they’ll need to manage their own lives. Briers teaches powerful, proactive techniques that don’t simply respond to bad behavior, but keep it from happening in the first place. Drawing on compelling new research on positive psychology, he shows how to cultivate specific habits of thought that nurture resilience and help “inoculate” against depressive illness… promote happiness and well-being… cultivate personal competence and social confidence… boost problem-solving skills, and more. With these eBooks, you and your kids will enjoy each other more… and they’ll grow up with the solid foundation they need to find their own paths, build their own lives, and thrive!


From world-renowned family happiness experts Richard Templar, Roni Jay, and Stephen Briers

3.0 out of 5 stars The last book is the best of all August 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wrote one review and can't seem to find it listed anywhere, maybe because I negatively reviewed one book, so I will try again. So here it is again.

This contains 3 books. Rules of Parenting, Nobody Told Me That, and How Your Child Thinks. The last book was written by a psychologist, the first 2 are written by professional writers (meaning they have written other books on other topics, and have had no professional experience with children)

The middle book, 'Nobody Told Me That' contains the author's bio: "Ronny is widely admired by everyone who knows her...knowing just the right thing to say and do in every situation" (I cut out even more groan inducing statements for brevity). Well, that sets the tone for the book. It is very condescending and judgmental. It is very hard to get through and reminds me of every judgmental and competitive mother I have ever come across. She gives a lot of things you should or shouldn't do, but doesn't bother to inform anyone on how to do it. Her story in the "Teach them to think" section had me either rolling my eyes or laughing on the floor. I think she made the story up because it is completely convoluted. Her idea for teaching kids right from wrong is having them read a lot. Children who play video games can't have 'magical moments' this is her idea of what she thinks a magical moment should look like (and this is speaking from someone who doesn't play video games, this section is so opinionated)

First book had some great tidbits, like "parenting is not a competitive sport" Some other tidbits are interesting and helpful. Interestingly, I thought the author of the second book should have read the first book, maybe she could glean some advice for the next time she chooses to write something.

A great set of books for bring-up children. A happy child is better than a wealthy man.
Wealth not equal to happiness.
