10 Things Every Parent Needs to Know

10 Things Every Parent Needs to Know


Wouldn't it be great if parents really only needed to know 10 Things to raise children successfully?

When they’re babies, it’s usually pretty simple. Feed them. Change them. Put them to sleep.

Then they start growing. Fast. They talk. They get moody. They have “needs”. They get siblings and start fighting, biting, pinching, punching, scratching, and more. They start school and come home with nasty words, threats that “you’re not my best friend anymore”, and all-too-often, even more challenging behaviour.

Even when they’re a dream, we still worry about how we can give them the best start in life.

In 10 Things Every Parent Needs to Know, parenting expert Dr Justin Coulson shares the ten key things every parent needs to know in order to raise their children in positive ways. They are also simple solutions to make parenting easier  - so you don't have to keep 'making it up as you go'.

Drawing on positive psychology, the book gives simple and effective strategies for the key issues parents of 2-12 year olds confront in everyday family life. Justin shares his secrets of effective attention, communication and understanding; how to discipline effectively and set limits; and how to manage hot-button issues such as sibling conflict, chores, school and screens - yet still have fun as a family. For parents of children 2-12 years, and beyond.

This book is one of the best purchases I’ve made.

I'm five chapters in, and my 6 year old said to me “Mummy you’re so kind now”. It stung hearing those words because I realised I’ve been so caught up in keeping the hamster wheel (household) running on time that I forgot to slow down and connect like I did before we had to start rushing off to school 5 days a week and endless after school appointments and activities.

Thank you Dr. Justin Coulson. Your book is changing families in the best way.
