Excellent book that helped me decode my daughter

This book helped me break my parental programming passed down from my mother and her mother and so on. This book taught me how to really treat my daughter with respect and how to communicate with her effectively. I want to have the best relationship I can possibly have with my daughter yet wasn't really sure how to go about it and this book taught me just that. I will continue to implement what is revealed in this book to maintain a healthy and effective relationship with my kids. I highly recommend this book to all parents and even pediatric therapists.

Seeing a child as an individual

I am a firm believer in raising my children against stereotypes based on gender. Bukky outlines positive parenting in an engaging way that makes total sense. Seeing children as individuals not just as males or females. Parenting in today's world is rough and I like to think I am fairly open with my children. They are 10 years old (twins: one boy and one girl) and it is coming into a time that we are having more serious conversations about life, maturity, puberty, and everything in between. This acknowledges the struggle of today's world and the power of no which is so very important to teach. I loved every minute of it. Especially when speaking about getting to know our children changes and the way we spend time together changes. It really opened my eyes to what I can be doing differently and in addition to what I already do as a parent. Loved it!

Parenting Teens

Parenting Teens breaks up the experience of parenting boys and girls, emphasizing the differences of each experience. The most important takeaways, however, are universal for all parents with their children and teens. Although the specific tips themselves are helpful, it is even more important for parents to remember that compassion, kindness, and demonstrating unconditional love for their children is essential. The author does a great job of continuously validating that parenting is a challenge, but that love is at the forefront in the family dynamic and experience.

Very well written book. This is kind of promising one to help parents understand their children especially when they are all growing up. With the world developing faster than ever, with social media and technologies, some parents aren't aware sometimes. This book will definitely help, good content and narration and overall.

A perfect guide for the modern parents of teens

We live in a far different world than parents who were raising teenagers 20 years ago. The advent of the internet and social media has taken a drastic toll on our kids and the way they interact with family and peers. It takes a different style of parenting to raise morally-aligned and well-rounded children, and author Bukky is up for the challenge. It's time to find some old-fashioned values and new strategies as well, because we all want to raise kids who will thrive in times of adversity. A great read, and would make a fantastic gift.

Great for single fathers

im a single dad atm and I see the boys twice a week. As they're getting older they're becoming a bit more confident/backchatty, etc. Part and parcel of growing up, of course, but chapter 4, for me, was of particular significance as this highlighted some great specific points concerning responsibility for the lads. A good read for single parents!

Packed full of info.

I really enjoyed this book, I found it packed full of good info that you can really put in to action. You almost need to read it with a note book near by to jot notes down as there is alot of info it's hard to remember it all.
My only thing was the audio voice wasn't my thing, I'm quite fussy with audio voices and this voice was not my favourite however it did not affect me enjoying the book and gaining through the knowledge offered.
