Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting

Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting arms parents with very simple strategies that take the daily battles out of parenting. The strategies are immediately effective for solving what parents say frustrates them the most: having to repeat instructions countless times before their children do what they ask them to do. With this powerful communication approach, soon parents only have to ask once to get their child to listen and cooperate.

This is a revolutionary concept for parents. They are used to repeating, reminding, bargaining, bribing and threatening to get their children to cooperate, and they are desperate for a better way.

Girls Uninterrupted

Padded bras for seven-year-olds, dolls dressed in high heels and pole dancing kits for pre-teens. From every angle, our daughters are being bombarded by messages about looks and sexuality that they are too young to understand. Even primary school girls feel pressured to conform to a thin, ‘sexy’ ideal, leading to self-destructive behaviour, ranging from anxiety and low self-esteem to eating disorders and self-harm.
But while girls are fast-tracked through childhood, parents' concerns are being drowned out by the internet, retailers, the media and peer pressure. And even though a furious debate is still raging about why it’s happening and who’s to blame, so far there has been no practical help for parents on how to fight back against the Lolita Effect.

Now parenting author Tanith Carey, herself the mother of two young girls, has written the first hands-on guide for parents which will show you how to:
• screen out damaging messages about body image and sex from the internet and media
• build up your daughter's self-esteem so she is strong enough to deal with the pressure to behave
   older than her years
• say the right things at the right time so she is inoculated against the worst influences of the X-rated society

Packed full of insights, experts’ tips and real experiences, “Girls Uninterrupted” is an essential and timely guide to safeguarding your daughter’s childhood - so she can grow into the healthy, confident woman she deserves to be.

Tanith Carey - Girls Uninterrupted
Tanith Carey is a parenting author and journalist who writes for a wide range of national newspapers and magazines.
