Parents. Moms & Dads. Families that live together, or separated. There’s no official handbook for new parents. Every family and situation is unique, and the idealistic pedestal isn’t only what we see in movies and on TV.
My own childhood was engrained with turmoil which left me a past filled with its share of guilt, shame, depression, low self esteem, and anxiety. It often made me feel trapped, and is what set me on my professional course to helping parents find direction.
Putting my insight, strategies, and experience into the written word extends my reach farther than a limited number of face-to-face sessions ever could. Since then I’ve published several books on the subject, with more on the way.
The titles within the Best Parenting Books cover a range of skills on specific and important topics that are “easy to digest” and implement. In there I place many useful resources that are beneficial to any type of parent or family member.
Together I hope we’ll be able to pass on positive parenting onto future generations to come.

What makes a good parenting book?
A good parenting book should be challenging yet consoling and remind us that being a good parent who is present, kind, forgiving to their children, we must first learn to be all of these things to ourselves.
Are parenting books aimed only at parents who have problems raising their children?

All parents want to raise extraordinary children who succeed in life by being an effective advisor and guardian to them. My books are full of actionable advice and applicable in all situations.
My parents or grandparents never read books and I turned up alright, why should I rely on written advice?
Parenting nowadays is not what it used to be even in your parents or their parents and grand-parents generations. It has evolved alongside the family structures and hierarchies. Kids were literally raised by ‘the whole village’ within close knit communities and with help from family, relatives and friends. Nowadays, we live further apart and kids are taught different values. Modern families can take many shapes and forms and we can do with all the extra help to raise our children, including in books such as the ‘Best Parenting’ series.
What makes the Best Parenting Series stand out from other similar titles?
As parents we all want our children to be happy and successful but very often best intentions could end up having the opposite effect. In our books we aim to teach parents not how to ‘make’ their kids happy but rather to help them develop social skills in their children (such as emotional regulation, anger management, communication, discipline and independence) that will set them in the right path to grow up and become balanced and successful adults in the future.
I understand that books are a good source of understanding the theory behind child development but how will they help me in practice?
