The Top Ten Things You’ll Learn From My Book

The “Me, Me, Me” Epidemic: A Step-by-Step Guide to Raising Capable, Grateful Kids in an Over-Entitled World

PPS-top-10-book-LEARNI get it! There are a LOT of choices when it comes to finding great reads and resources for raising kids who are not only well behaved…but well on their way to being happy, healthy, independent people when they grow up. With that said, I hope you’ll indulge me while I shamelessly share with you ten great reasons why I think you should pick up a copy of my new book – The “Me, Me, Me” Epidemic today.

You’ll get the tools to…

  1.  Say NO. One of the toughest challenges for parents in today’s world is to set limits you and your kids can feel good about – and make them stick.
  2.  Foster gratitude, compassion, and empathy in your family. I’ll share powerful tools to get kids out of the “ME” bubble they’re in and focus on the people and relationships in their lives.
  3.  Motivate your kids to pitch in and participate without bribes, rewards or payouts. What? You read that right. You’ll learn the strategies to get your kids to willingly help and do their part without expecting anything in return!
  4.  Help kids learn personal and fiscal responsibility. Little kids and big kids will realize their actions have consequences (positive and negative) and you’ll help your kids learn that the world (including you) doesn’t owe them everything. In fact, with these tools, you will help your child learn to manage their OWN money – which is a life skill every child should learn.
  5.  Help them build strong decision-making skills. With these tools, you’ll foster self-confidence, independence, and the ability to think (and decide) for themselves. That’s life-changing.
  6.  Better connect as a family. I’ll share the tools to achieve what parents tell me they want most – to truly make the most of their time with their kids and work together as a close-knit family.
  7. Strategically deal with backtalk, complaining, and negotiating. No more raised voices, nagging, or ineffective punishments like time-out.
  8.  Diffuse power struggles and curb tantrums. You’ll learn the triggers behind tantrums and power plays and how to keep these two trouble-making behaviors at bay.
  9.  Minimize family chaos and stress. If you’ve been eager to find a way to create more order, routine, teamwork and a whole lot less headaches in your home, this book has just what the doctor ordered!
  10.  Feel more confident as a parent. Good parenting often takes great practice and the ability to get the answers you need when you need them (before getting overwhelmed, upset, or angry). This book is the resource for those answers you can turn to, dog-ear, highlight, and pick up again and again when you aren’t quite sure what to do. Imagine having the confidence to face every day, every situation like a parenting rock star! The “Me, Me, Me” Epidemic will help you do that!
