Parenting can be one of life’s most rewarding experiences – but it can also be one of the toughest. There are times where you’ll likely have to deal with conflict, behavioural issues, discipline that seems to go nowhere, and heightened stress. So, how do you keep your relationship with your kids on track?
In the forthcoming book, Parenting for a Happier Home, renowned Australian psychologist Stuart Passmore has written a research-driven parenting guide to ensure your family unit stays harmonious. The strategies are designed to work with behavioural disorders such as ADHD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder as well as explosive and non-compliant behaviour and work in each of the child's different environments.
