AintMIsbehavinAin’t Misbehavin’  (2011)

I wrote this book as the follow up to Honey, I Wrecked The Kids.  It’s a book for theory-weary parents who just don’t have time to read a parenting book; instead, they just need a “dictionary of solutions.”  I promise no answer is longer than a page and half.  I have even included sample scripts so if you’re fired up and can’t talk without yelling, just read the words on the page.  Check out the full description and reviews here.




HoneyIWreckedTheKidsHoney, I Wrecked The Kids ( 2009)

The inspiration for this book came from hearing so many parents’ exasperated cries for help, feeling they have tried EVERYTHING (actually, the subtitle is “When Yelling, Screaming, Threats, Bribes, Timeouts, Groundings, Sticker Charts and Removing Privileges All Don’t Work”) and feel they’ve inadvertently made matters worse.   They feel they have in fact, “wrecked the kids”.   I offer insightful and funny, yet powerful information about the true nature of misbehaviour.  Parents learn to recognize these 4 “dances”, the unique discipline tools to respond to each, as well as long term strategies for finding constructive paths for getting our children’s needs met in the family.  Only way funnier than that just sounded!  Check out more details here.



BreakingTheGoodMomMythBreaking The Good Mom Myth ( 2007)

If you are anxious, a perfectionist, overly ambitious, or discouraged about motherhood, this is a great read. A lot of people give it to friends as baby shower gifts, wishing they had read it when their kids were a lot younger.  Yes, I do poke fun at modern motherhood, but in a gentle and guilt free way. Society has so many unchallenged assumptions about parenting principles which hinder instead of help our children. In Breaking The Good Mom Myth I break myths of what it means to be a good mother in ways that will both shock and relieve you. I offer up a new refreshing approach to parenting that will lead to happier families. You’ll find strategies for raising resilient, caring and cooperative children, without the guilt or stress.  Check out the full book details here.
