              One in fourteen young Australians are now being diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, some as young as four, and in the face of such statistics it?s easy for parents to feel powerless.

              It's well established that parents in western countries such as Australia currently do too much for their kids, albeit with good intentions. Before driving their kids to school (or station or bus stop) each morning most parents would have woken their children up, made their break...fast and lunch, depositing the latter in their schoolbags, before reminding them to get dressed and brush their teeth. All this well-intentioned activity may make for an easier life at home but it encourages children to be dependent on adults for longer. This is the exact opposite of what parents have done in the past, which is to develop their children's independence and achieve the most important parenting outcome of all - their own redundancy. There are a number of reasons for this high level of dependency parenting, including family shrinkage (parents are able to do a great deal for kids in small families), older parents (often over-concerned about their children), busy lives (it's easier to do than delegate) and a heightened fear that the world is a dangerous place for young people. While terms such as 'helicopter parents', 'bubble-wrapping kids' and 'over-parenting' are now common place, they are unhelpful and offer little direction for parents. Spoonfed Generation will explain the importance of children's independence and the vital stages to letting go. Never before has a generation been so dependent on their parents; now it's time to remove the spoon and put it back in the drawer.

              A Man's Guide to Raising Kids (EPUB ebook)

              By Grose, Michael

              What's our most precious resource? Children. What's the most valuable thing any child can have? A parent who loves and values them and will help them become the best they can be. And where do fathers go for advice on being that kind of parent? Fathers, you say, not mothers? Now t...hat's a tricky one. Not any more it's not. Finally, there is a practical parenting guide for men. Michael Grose has a track record in parenting books and now he has written the one Australian fathers have been waiting for, A Man's Guide to Raising Kids. At last, a book specifically written for men in the 21st century. He demolishes the myths ('Children are not safe around men': Myth! 'Fathers need to forgive their own fathers before they can be good dads': Myth! 'Busy dads are bad dads': Myth!). He provides practical advice that's easy to understand and apply, and covers everything dads need to know. Topics include: Getting discipline right; How to raise both daughters and sons effectively; How their birth order affects your kids and how you should deal with that; Getting involved in their sports; Fathering after divorce or separation; Getting through their adolescence; The role of grandads; and how to manage your busy schedule and still be a great dad. 'Men who can enjoy healthy relationships with their children are generally happier and lead fuller lives. They also become better leaders and managers both at work and within the community.' - from A Man's Guide to Raising Kids. Michael Grose is a father of three and the author of successful parenting titles including Great Ideas for Tired Parents and One Step Ahead: Raising 3-12 Year Olds

              XYZ: The New Rules of Generational Warfare (EPUB ebook)

              By Grose, Michael

              Every day, at home, at work, at play and at school, we are all forced to confront generational wars. The rules for living in families and raising children have changed dramatically in the last decade. Families are shrinking, parents are having children later in life and adolescen...ce now stretches for twenty years with young people just not leaving home. In fact, such are the generational changes that some parents now leave home before their kids. The world is increasingly crowded as an alphabet soup of generations exists side by side in workplaces, within the community and within families. With the traditional three score and ten years stretching to four score and more there are currently five generations coexisting: the silent generation, babyboomers, Generations, X, Y and Z. So how do Gen Xer's raise their children? Are Gen Y's just Babyboomers recycled or are they defined by the times they live in? Will outsourcing and grandparenting be replaced by surrogate parenting? To understand children and parents today it essential to look at the context in which we live. Michael Grose helps readers understand how each generation thinks and functions and presents ideas to help us live with each other in imperfect harmony. He takes a look at the challenges of raising Gen X families - small families - and provides a new parenting model for raising 21st century kids. XYZ: The New Rules of Generational Warfare provides essential strategies for parents who are struggling to raise Generation Y and provides tips and strategies to help Generation Y live with their parents!
