Publisher's Summary

If you’ve ever allowed a three-year-old’s temper tantrum to ruin you, then keep reading...and learn the no-nonsense approach to positive parenting and raising emotionally intelligent kids.

You’re in the middle of the supermarket and your three-year-old is in full meltdown mode over an icicle. There’s yelling, and there are tears and snot flying everywhere. Do you:

  1. Give in and buy the icicle because you’re way too embarrassed
  2. Engage in a yelling match with your kid, i.e., lose your marbles completely
  3. Drag your kid yelling and screaming out of the supermarket
  4. Calmly but firmly stand your ground, and tell your little one there are snacks waiting for them at home

Now that you look at it, the correct answer is probably obvious. In the heat of the moment, however, most parents will react instinctively and they’ll do irrational things due to stress and exhaustion.

Let’s face it - even the best and kindest of kids throw temper tantrums. In fact, statistics show that 87 percent of 18 to 24-month-olds will have a total meltdown every once in a while.

No parent wants to lose control and shout at their child, but it happens. Maybe you think that at least you are disciplining your child...but studies show that long term, it leads to a poorer parent-child relationship and is consistently ranked the worst disciplining method by child behavior psychologists.

Aileen Jarvis and Rowan Roffe are child developmental specialists and have seen this happen over and over again.

One of the most common issues they faced when working with children has always been the way in which the parents are just so radically underprepared to cope with the stress of raising a child.

While working together they realized that if they wanted to make a real and lasting impact on a child’s life, they had to start at the core; they had to start with the parents.

Ever since then they have worked tirelessly to bridge the divide between parent and child and teach parents the secrets of mindful parenting.

In this Positive Parenting 2-in-1 Value Bundle, you will discover:

  • What exactly is parenting with purpose - actionable tips and no mumbo jumbo
  • How your child’s mind functions - little ones don’t process information as adults!
  • How to handle the mighty temper tantrum like a boss (the one thing all parents are probably dying to find out)
  • The secret of setting boundaries and outlining clear consequences, whether positive or negative
  • How to incorporate mindfulness into positive discipline
  • Five little things that you probably aren’t getting right
  • Three simple tricks that will stop you from losing your cool

And much more.

Ultimately, your goal will always be to raise your child as best as possible. To love them and care for them. No more will you have to worry about the stress of a tantrum in public or your teen not obeying curfew.

Not your run of the mill bundle

There are two books in this bundle, and each book would be worth the audiobook's price alone. As someone who has raised kids, I can tell you that is no manual, and everyone has advice that doesn't seem to work. But, this audiobook bundle delivers. The first book, Parenting with Purpose, explains how a child's mind works. This was the most useful information I received as a parent because I understand my son better. The authoritative parenting chapter helped me see what type of parent I am. When my son was young, I was the authoritative parent type. While this parenting type keeps the kids on the straight and narrow, there are several drawbacks. But it worked for us. The authors also discuss concepts such as emotional intelligence and how it relates to children.

The second book in the bundle covers how kids act out and what parents can do to help, not hinder the situation. The tips on dealing with anger and irritation when it comes to sibling rivalries were beneficial. The book also discusses the importance of role models and how they shape others. I saw this characteristic in my son's behavior. Overall this value bundle is outstanding and goes into a lot of depth. If you are a parent struggling with any of these concepts, you should buy this book now. It is worth your time and sanity. Highly recommended!

It all starts here...

The first thought that comes to mind is just how much valuable information and concrete tips are found within these audiobooks (2 in 1). I chose to listen to these books to gain more understanding of the important little people who brighten up my life, and I was not disappointed. It has been an eye opener in the way that I approach discipline and adult-child communication. The information is provided in a simple, yet most effective way. I have learnt a most important lesson in showing up as my best self for my nieces, which sets a solid ground to build positive relationships. Very grateful I came across this audiobook!

I love these two books.

As a parent, it's very important that you are teaching your children discipline with empathy. Children take time to understand the ways of the world and the consequences of their actions can be taught most sympathetically by having a good understanding of their behaviour.

Gentle Parenting

Everyone always says they'll raise their kids right... but when you have them, you discover it's hard to figure out exactly what raising them right is. This book is a great, in depth look at that very topic. It takes you in and shows you that YOU are the parent and, while some kids are troublemakers, most of their behavior is because of you and how you treat them.

This book is for those parents who want to give their child the best possible upbringing. It will teach you all kinds of useful techniques that work (for both you AND your kid ;) ). I hadn't realized just how much of this I understood, but didn't internalize, until I read this book. I highly recommend it for any parent, not just new but experienced as well.

A must Parenting Guide!!!

Thanks to god I just got this lovely audiobook about parenting! As we are expecting next month our first baby we do not have that much experience in this field. Except what our parents teach and explained to us until now. Of course, they are a big help and they will support us in this but we cannot disturb them all the time with every single problem if we going to have with our child. Thanks to this audiobook WE already learned a lot and gave us so much confidence before the baby comes! I can't wait to finish the book and finally adapt the new tips and advice with our lovely baby! Definitely recommended for new young parents!

Perfect for All Parents

I enjoyed listening to these audiobooks. My children are now in their twenties, but at times, I could see myself with them in several scenarios described. I wish I could have had access to just a fraction of the information set out here; it would have made life far easier! The different parenting styles are described with the pros and cons of each. Tips on handling situations, such as temper tantrums, are a great source of help. Mindfulness is described in detail; I found this particularly interesting. Well written and narrated, these two books should sit on every parents' bookshelf. Great work.

Some great ideas for positive reinforcement

A perfect combo and great value in both of these two books. A very non judgemental series. I really liked the part about understanding your child's personality type, because I hadn't considered that issue before.

The best part though is that the books are filled with real life scenarios instead of just theory. It's important to reiterate that kids often learn by observation and how vital it is that the overall home environment be as positive and nurturing as possible.

Lots of great info

This audiobook offers lots of valuable information and advice to parents with children of any age - from toddlers to teenagers. It helps parents to understand how child’s mind works and explores different styles of parenting. The book is also looking at emotional intelligence and how teenagers mind works. My favourite chapter is the one that talks about how to apply parenting with different scenarios.
