Image of item
"Parents these days are under a great deal of pressure to be "perfect." With extensive research on the subject of parenting and the emotional development of children, and more and more experts and bloggers writing about specific parenting tips and techniques, parents are inundated every day with countless dos and don'ts of raising their children. Vicki Hoefle's Straight Talk Parenting makes the bold claim that it's not about perfection. In fact, there is no template, because no two children are alike. Instead, Hoefle argues that parenting is more about fostering family growth by keeping the children's best interests in mind. Her book teaches parents to trust their intuition and develop an intentional strategy for meeting each child's unique needs.
