Can your child run rings around you, and always have the last word? Is your child strong-willed and very independent for his or her age? Do they refuse to take 'no' for an answer?
If the answer to these questions is 'yes', then it is likely that you have a bright and challenging child. Whilst there are many positives to parenting such children, it can also be very demanding. IT'S NOT FAIR! is designed specifically for the parents of young children who are independent, risk-taking and hard to rein in. It will help you to:
* Set and reinforce boundaries - and explain why you should
* Identify the issues and risks that your child may face - and help them to prepare for them
* Discuss sensitive issues together - such as sex and drugs
* Help your child to be more aware of the needs of others
