Kids Don't Come With a Manual book giveaway #6

Whilst being pregnant I had few parenting books which I scanned through when I had time. I noted few things which I thought are important to know but didn't pay much attention to the rest as I believe that my natural instinct will tell me what I should do and what is best for my baby. 

9 months later my main concern is L's sleeping and I'm constantly on a search for a better method, someone's advice, helpful book to read. Recently I came across Kids Don't Come With a Manual book by Carole and Nadim Saad, which I thought could be the one.

Unfortunately the book is addressed to parents with older kids who have tantrums, sibling rivalry etc. but nonetheless it is very interesting to know how to tackle these challenges at some point as I'm sure due to our different parenting styles L will try to "trick" one or the other.

Just like Carole did, I'm sure I will give in to my daughter's "wants", and my husband just like Nadim was, believes that you should be strict with a child, that a child should recognise authority in a parent. I know that only cooperation and team work can lead to a happier life and happier, well-behaved child.

Parenting is an important job, yet parents receive little to no training. Since most of our experience is based on our own upbringing, we can feel uncertain as to whether we are doing the right” thing. To complicate things further, our partner is likely to have a different parenting style to ours. Drawing on their experience in early childhood education, as parent coaches, and as parents, Carole and Nadim have helped thousands of parents with their programme of practical ‘tools’ designed to empower parents

- Deal with everyday parenting challenges without confrontation or anger.
- Help children to become happy, fulfilled and self-reliant adults.
- Maintain a strong and loving connection with children throughout their lives.
- Agree on a balanced and more enjoyable approach to parenting.

It is a little bit to early for us to use the book but I will be certainly reading the book when I think the time is right.
