"From the minute I got up this morning my kids were fussing and fighting, and finding creative ways to drive me nuts. Sometimes, on a day like this, I just want to give them away -- cheap!" "I love them to death, but some days I'd like to know them into the middle of next week." Do these sentiments sound familiar? Feeling guilty about your parental frustrations is not the answer. (Neither is giving your children away cheap, or knocking their heads together!) So where does a concerned, "at-the-end-of-my-rope" parent turn for help? Since its first release in 1972, thousands have turned to Dr. Bruce Narramore's Help! I'm a Parent. In fact, over 150,000 copies of the original edition have already been sold. Now Dr. Narramore has revised and expanded his classic best-seller to include new material dealing with contemporary problems, like the challenges faced by single parents and working mothers. Help! I'm a Parent presents a practical, workable plan for disciplining children. From learning to deal effectively with temper tantrums and sibling fights, to handling difficult questions about sex, Dr. Narramore provides readers with a kind of "owners manual" for kids.
He also helps parents understand and meet their children's God-given spiritual and emotional needs. For parents who would like practice applying these principles in a study group of with their spouses, Dr. Narramore has also written the Help! I'm a Parent Handbook: A Twelve-Week Program for Raising Better-Behaved, Happier Children. The handbook includes questions, summaries, and though-provoking exercises that help you deal with your children's discipline problems.
