Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids

Parenting isn't about what our child does, but about how we respond.  ~Dr. Laura Markham

I've been going to preschool classrooms daily now for 14 years. I know a lot about working with other people's kids, but I'll be the first to admit, I'm no parenting expert, which is why I'm so happy to work in schools where we have brilliant parent educators to whom I can refer parents who come to me with their parenting questions.

When someone from outside our little cooperative preschool community asks for parenting help, however, my go-to educator is Dr. Laura Markham of Aha! Parenting fame. And the best news is that she's now published her first book Peaceful Parent, Happy Kid, which means you can find that Dr. Laura goodness all in one place.

If you're a regular reader here, you'll know that I don't accept advertising, I don't do give-aways, I'm not in the business of helping other people sell stuff, but when Laura asked me to help promote her book, she didn't have to ask twice simply because I'm convinced that if every parent took the time to read it, the world would be transformed. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.

Dr. Markham's approach is about being the parent you want to be: about raising happy, responsible, emotionally healthy children; and about the revolutionary idea that love and relationship are at the heart of parenting.

I put a lot of time and effort into this blog. If you'd like to support me please consider a small contribution to the cause. Thank you!

I have long found her advice the perfect amalgam of the most useful parts of all the parenting techniques/styles I've tried. I preordered her book and received it as soon as it was released. It's even better than her emails and website! I love that you, someone to whom I look for help educating my children, are promoting it.
