-- "Not every baby is born perfect and not many toddlers turn three without having thrown their first tantrum. I have yet to encounter one adolescent who doesn't have the odd spot on his face, isn't sulking most of the time and doesn't backchat his parents..."
As parents, we want what's best for our children. However, most people can only do the best they know at any specific time. We all make mistakes in our daily lives and especially as parents. None of us can claim to know everything there is to know about parenting - we are all constantly learning and continually making mistakes.
This is not your typical parenting instruction book, guiding you through the basics. Hopefully, you will already have some idea on how to handle the basics of parenting. This book is a reflection on some aspects of parenting that many people omit from their parenting, whether intentionally or otherwise, and hence our society is clad with undisciplined pre-schoolers, disrespectful teenagers and angry adults, who refuse to accept responsibility for their actions.
By combining five basic principles (routines, boundaries, discipline, respect and responsibility)
with a solid spiritual foundation and an endless supply of love, our children will grow into responsible and respectful, compassionate and loving, adults, who will ensure our future is safe in their hands.
Deep down, if you look within yourself, you're already a good parent - you just need a little reminding...
