Win a Copy of ‘Ten Things Every Parent Needs to Know’

With all that child rearing advice readily available at our fingertips, navigating daily dilemmas of family life hasn’t become easier. For those who feel more confused than enlightened, Dr Justin Coulson’s new book offers simple parenting strategies. We are giving away 25 copies of Ten Things Every Parent Needs to Know: Positive Solutions for Everyday Parenting Challenges (ABC Books, February 2018, RRP $32.99)!

Based on the latest research in parenting and positive psychology, the new title by parenting expert Dr Justin Coulson (21 Days to a Happier Family and 9 Ways to a Resilient Child) deals with the most common issues parents of 2–12 year olds experience in everyday family life including sibling conflict, chores, school and screen time.

A father of six children who quit his previous career to study psychology to become a better dad, the author is very open about his own struggles as a parent. With tact and empathy, he shares his secrets of effective parenting, while stressing the importance of having fun as a family.

Dr Coulson introduces the reader – in ten easy to read chapters – to the ten key things every parent needs to know to bring up their children in more positive ways. The title is provided with a helpful index and a resources list.
