Without question, this is the most practical book I have ever read on this subject, and I hope that every parent gets a copy and puts it into practice.

EFFECTIVE PARENTING-WITHOUT THE POWER STRUGGLES.
As parents, you have only a few years to prepare your
children for a world that requires responsibility and
maturity for survival. That thought alone can send shivers
down your parental spine!
So what do you do? Hover
over your kids so they never make mistakes? Drill them so
they'll remember the important principles when you're on
their own? Tear your hair out, wondering if teaching them
responsibility is anything but a battle of wills?
According to Jim Fay, one of America's top
educational consultants, and Dr. Foster Cline, a
trend-setting child and adult psychiatrist, parents who try
to ensure their children's success often raise unsuccessful
kids. Responsibility is like anything else-it has to be
learned through practice.
If you want to raise kids
who are self-confident, motivated, and ready for the real
world, take advantage of the win-win approach to parenting.
Your kids will win because they'll learn responsibility and
the logic of life by solving their own problems. And you'll
win because you'll establish healthy control-without
resorting to anger, threats, nagging, or exhausting power
