ParentShift is both a book and a philosophy. By breaking down all childhood behavior into its component parts, we show parents how to solve their short-term challenges, prevent long-term problems and build strong relationships with their kids — all at the same time. Groundbreaking in both its scope and methodology, ParentShift challenges some of our most popular disciplinary tools and replaces them with a practical, step-by-step process designed to help parents solve virtually any household challenge in positive, effective ways.
What makes ParentShift different?
Unlike most parenting books on the market, ParentShift' is positive, practical and widely applicable — whether your child is four or fourteen. We meet you where you are — whether you have a strong set of skills already, or whether your relationship with your child needs a complete reboot. Our tools are simple, easy to use and — most importantly— based on communication, rather than manipulation. Built around ten universal truths that apply to all children everywhere, ParentShift shows parents how to anticipate behavior changes in their children — and how to handle them.
Some of today's most popular parenting techniques — including those used by many well-known experts — are known to drive deep wedges in the parent-child relationship. These very points of disconnection contribute to a host of problems down the road — including depression, drug abuse, early sex, reckless behavior, low self-esteem and even self-harm. Some children are more naturally resilient than others. But will yours be? There are lots of ways to deal with children's behavior without poisoning their long-term health. And ParentShift will show you how.
