Raising a child in today’s world is a challenging task. Kids don’t come with instruction manuals, and no test is required to parent. So, it makes sense that many of us feel unprepared and unready for the task at hand.

But, the job doesn’t have to be quite so difficult. There are strategies and skills that can help the parenting process be more effective and successful for the whole family. At the center of these techniques is one simple idea - Respect Your Children.

So, what does it mean to Respect Your Children? It’s about communicating with our kids, talking to them and listening to their answers. Understanding the difference between discipline and punishment. It’s caring for them with love, instead of obligation or resentment. Whether it be teaching, or simply chatting on the couch, parents need to tackle every situation from a position that starts with this one overriding principle - respect.

Throughout the course of this book, you will learn a variety of tools, skills and strategies that will help you become a better role model, and a better parent.
