The book, Parenting From the Heights, by Anne Wiggins & Linda Williams is full of practical, common sense parenting tools. You will appreciate the many real life examples that are given. The authors are not only parents, but also teach parenting classes. They have helped many parents find simple techniques that change pouting, crying children into compliant,happy ones. We highly recommend this Christian approach. Good parenting will always be work. But work done with the right tools is always more effective.
