Have you ever been on the phone for less than 3 minutes only to find that your child has dumped all the cereal and rice from the cabinet? Have you ever made the simple request "put your shoes on" only to endure 30 minutes of your child jumping up and down screaming "no" or better yet not even being able to find a pair of matching shoes? The Dr. Moms have, too.
Child psychologists and parenting experts, Sam and Liz (a.k.a. The Dr. Moms), teach parents how to parent proactively and positively so as to avoid many common problems. With a combined twenty years of providing parenting advice professionally, and raising children personally, the Dr. Mom's turn their experience, insight, empathy, and humorous anecdotes into easy to use strategies. Ready, Set, Parent offers real life examples and specific solutions to help parents:
- Understand temperament
- Take care of themselves and develop realistic expectations
- Understand the importance of consistency
- Employ positivity
- Parent proactively
- Discipline constructively
- Manage those inevitable challenges that can and do arise for all parents
- Address hot topics such as potty training, spanking, and deciding when to send your child to kindergarten
So that parents raise happy and independent children with:
- Problem solving skills
- Strong self-esteem
- Good listening skills
- Positive behavior
Further, parents are taught how to use these tools at each stage of children's development.
"As a mother of three young children, I loved this book! Unlike many parenting manuals that take a preachy, theoretical tone, Sam and Liz are insightful, practical, and highly entertaining. It is clear that they are not only psychologists but in the trenches with their own children, allowing them to talk the talk and walk the walk. From temper tantrums to kindergarten readiness, the Dr. Moms' proactive approach brilliantly addresses the dilemmas of modern parenting. A must read for anyone with young children!"
-Emily Giffin, New York Times Best Selling Author of Something Borrowed and Baby Proof
"I highly recommend Ready, Set, Parent. The Dr. Moms provide information on child psychology and development that all new parents need and they do it in a fun, easy to read manner. These thoughtful strategies can help guide development positively thereby avoiding many common challenges that arise in childhood. Sam and Liz are experienced and creative, both as professionals and as parents."
