The Good Enough Parent
How to raise contented, interesting, and resilient children
A compassionate guide to raising resilient, authentic, well-rounded children.
The Good Enough Parent is a compendium of life lessons, including how to say 'No', how to look beneath the surface of "bad" behavior to find the root of what is going on, how to encourage a child to be genuinely kind, and how to handle the moodiness of adolescence.
Rather than striving for perfection, the book argues, the job of any parent is in fact to guide a child gently into the imperfect nature of everything.
Encouraging, wry, and steeped in years of experience, The Good Enough Parent is an intelligent guide to raising a child who will one day look back on their childhood with just the right mixture of gratitude, humor, and love.
