Instant Parenting: How to Be a Good Parent and Raise a Child with Fewer Conflicts Instantly! is one of many books in The INSTANT-Series and this one provides the gist of what you need to be good parent. I've often thought that parents should be required to have licenses to raise children and this book is sort of like the study guide to the licensing test. Starting out by explaining a parent's purpose, the book contains chapters including GPS (Guided Parental System), Golden Behaviors of Parenting, Parental Communication Skills, Controlling Yourself Before Controlling Your Child, and several other information-packed chapters.
Instant Parenting: How to Be a Good Parent and Raise a Child with Fewer Conflicts Instantly! starts out with a key concept that I've often believed. A "nice" parent isn't always an "effective" parent. I liked the piece about promoting more open and honest communication with your child. If only every family would practice more communication, most relationships would improve. Instant Parenting is a good reference source both for the new parent or even the parent of a teen who suddenly finds himself not knowing how to handle a situation. The Parental Situational Scenarios and exercises were very helpful and gave good, concrete examples of what to do and not to do. Instant Parenting: How to Be a Good Parent and Raise a Child with Fewer Conflicts Instantly! would make a great gift for a new parent.
