Finally, a straightforward, lighthearted, and research-based parenting book for working parents who want to do the best they can for their children in the time they have together. Board-certified child psychologist and university professor David J. Palmiter, PhD, distills the broad and complex endeavor of parenting into 10 effective strategies for promoting happy and well-adjusted children in busy households.

These 10 simple and achievable strategies are proven to help children develop a healthy self-esteem, feel safe and connected to the family, make good decisions, and develop independence and resilience. Dr. Palmiter shares discipline techniques that address misbehavior without producing more frustration and alienation and covers how to recognize and treat early signs of psychological problems. Taking an "edutainment" approach, Dr. Palmiter holds your attention and makes you laugh out loud at situations you'll quickly recognize from your own parenting experiences. A working father with three beloved children of his own, Dr. Palmiter understands the crazy, hectic schedules and challenges today's parents face every day.
