A practical guide for navigating the everyday challenges of raising kids—from managing family routines, screen time, and homework to supporting social development, self-esteem, and resilience

Parenting approaches only work when they’re supported by the relationships parents have with their children.  
In Raising Kids, family therapist and parenting consultant Sheri Glucoft Wong and Silicon Valley private school head Olaf Jorgenson team up to deliver an easy-to-follow, down-to-earth guide to building relationships by being on your kids’ side and getting them on yours.
This isn’t a typical parenting book packed with theories or quick fixes. Instead, if offers approaches that work because they take into account who you are, who your child is, and how you relate to one another.
You’ll discover how being “on your spot” leads to fewer conflicts and replaces threats, nagging, and punishment with clear, effective messages that make sense to your kids. Learn how to: be involved (but not too involved) in your children’s school life, manage transitions and upsets, support their self-esteem, and more.
With its easy-to-grasp language and techniques, Raising Kids will help you build on what you’re already doing well to maximize the good times in your family, so you can enjoy your kids even more. After all, isn’t that the whole point of being a parent?
