Nobody starts their parenting journey in hopes of raising an asshole. Far from it. Parents want to raise confident, happy, independent kids who grow up and do great things.
In You Might Be Raising an A**hole If . . ., Sarah Anderson and Katherine Quie draw on their personal and professional wisdom as mothers and clinicians to illustrate over one hundred parenting faux pas that speak to the complex job of raising children in this crazy, electronics-obsessed world. They’ve also included thoughtful words of wisdom to inspire and energize parents and give HOPE.
This book will help parents learn to:
- Say no and mean it
- Stop tolerating crappy behavior
- Raise confident kids
- Trust your gut (if it feels excessive, it probably is)
- Get back to the basics (yes, writing thank-you notes is still important)
- Stop over-parenting and take back your guilt!
Sarah Anderson and Katherine Quie are moms and mental health professionals. They practice in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
