What is Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm all about?
During the time of our parents and grandparents, parenting was a shared responsibility. Since then the onslaught of change has created a new society and a new value system. The responsibility of bringing up the child now rests squarely on the parents. Double income parents have increasingly lesser time for children, busy as they are juggling their work as well as day-to-day household chores. However, this does not stop them from expecting spectacular achievements from their children. All these changes put together have turned every concept, ideal and principle of parenting on its head.
In this book Ramendra Kumar, with his wide experience in writing for children and his own personal experience of bringing up two children, explores the fundamental of Effective Parenting through Five Pillars – the Pillars of Sharing, Caring, Fun and Joy, Healthy Living and Invaluable Values. It is a framework offering hands-on suggestions and pragmatic examples which would hopefully serve as unobtrusive guides as the reader journeys across the tough terrain of Parenting.
