The Low Pressure Guide to Parenting Your Preschooler, Tim Sanford, Tyndale House, 2016 is a great book for any parent. Mr. Sanford gives very practical advice first in adjusting the mindset a parent has. He accurately points out some of the flawed thinking that can trap and defeat parents.
Our children come in all shapes and sizes – both physically and emotionally. If your particular child isn’t just what you were or just what your mother, mother-in-law or pastor thinks he should be, Mr. Sanford has comfort to offer. He urges parents to focus on the fundamentals of parenting – nurturing and validating.
Once free of the bondage of perfectionist-thinking, he offers three major principles with practical, day-to-day action items: Make friends with free will, Step away from the power struggle and Reduce the rules.
This will be a great addition to the library of any parent..
