 BLUE INK REVIEW

Who Runs Your House: The KidsorYou?
Karen Phillip
Xlibris, 234 pages, (paperback), $29.99 AUD, 978-1-4771-4074-1 (Reviewed: April2013)
 
Karen Phillip, author of Who Runs Your House: The Kidsor You? is a mother of threeanda trained counselor. Shehas conducted government-sponsoredparenting courses andworked in family counseling foralmost 20 years. In other words, sheiswell-versedin the subject ofparenting, the topic of her new book.
 
Who Runs Your House is geared for parents of younger children, with an emphasis on startinggood habits early rather thantrying to "retrofit" after negativepatterns are established. Non- Australians may beunfamiliar withsome of the local lingo, but the topics are relevant to parents across the globe--from simpler issues such asdinner and bedtime routines to more complex challenges suchas blended familiesand parental separation.
 
The author has a frank voice; at timesheropinions come across as quite vehement. For example, on the subject of "childrestraints", (e.g., harness or wrist restraints that can prevent a child from dashinginto dangerous situations), the author encourages parents todecidewhat issafest for their child. But the text refers to those critical of such restraints as "condescending morons". Whiletheintended point seems to be that parents are the best judgesand strangers shouldn't be critical whenthey don't know all of the facts.
 
Phillip's practical experience yields useful recommendations in severalareas. As with all forms of parenting advice, though, readers are likely to glean the suggestions that fit best

From the Author

Our job as a Parent is to guide, support and enable our children to grow up into balanced, capable and independent human beings.
I have written this book as a guide and help for all Parents. It can be so challenging to raise our beautiful children when they push us in ways we never dreamed they could. While we love and adore them, the pressure we sometimes feel can overwhelm us.
I have tried to show Parents how we can remain loving and in control while directing our children to more appropriate behaviour and actions.
Let's remove the stress from our home, enjoy our family and children and have some fun with them. Keeps us all happy :)
