In this age of hyper-information, parenting is much like tap-dancing in a minefield. There was a time when parents had nothing to draw from except for their experiences with their own parents. But today, there is information overload and conflicting advice from multiple ‘experts’.
HOW ARE PARENTS TO NAVIGATE THIS JUNGLE OF COUNSEL AND STILL RETAIN THEIR SANITY?
The short answer: common sense. 13 Steps to Bloody Good Parenting uses wit and prudence to show that parenting is not an exercise in theories but about learning on the job. In the patented, no-frills style of the 13 Steps series, the book cuts right through the din of information and advice.
Parenting is a huge responsibility. With 13 Steps to Bloody Good Parenting, it can become a more thoughtful and enjoyable one.
