Wise Minded Parenting

Wise Minded Parenting
7 Essentials for Raising Successful Tweens & Teens
Laura S. Kastner

I am the type of person that researches a topic to death. So I've read a ton of parenting books. Since my children are not at the tween age yet, I thought I'd get a jump on it and read this book. I was pleasantly surprised. The book is filled with tons facts and information, but is also incredibly easy to read and process. The ideas and thoughts given are easy to incorporate and sound reasonable. 
The concept behind the book is letting go of emotions when dealing with an emotional child so that wise parenting can come into play, instead of a fight to the end with your child. Essential tips, bullet points and hypothetical conversations are extremely helpful and were brought back to my mind several times this week when dealing with my children.
While geared towards older children, I found them very helpful with my younger children as well. If you want emotionally stable children and less stress for yourself during the process, pick up this book and implement the ideas the author has presented. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with kids.

I received this book free of charge from Sandpiper Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
