Keep Calm and Parent On : A Guilt-Free Approach to Raising Children by Asking More from Them and Doing Less

Publishers Weekly

British nannies are all the rage, and this contribution from parenting expert Jenner, former star of TLC's Take Home Nanny, hits the usual topics of sleep, food, and discipline. Where she sets her parenting advice apart is in chapters such as "The Dignified Parent" and "The King's Speech." In the former, she highlights the most important relationship in the household; she even recommends that parents greet each other before greeting children. The latter focuses on communication, with advice on how children should communicate with parents and the world, as well as how parents should communicate respectfully with children and each other. Manners are important to Jenner: children should behave properly at the dinner table, say thank you, and greet others properly, right down to learning how to shake hands with grown-ups around age four. Parents should model good manners-being polite with children and respecting their physical space. The author has high standards, but notes, "I'm not a fan of British households that are all rules and limits and no love." She provides helpful checklists to "take the guilt and some of the angst out of parenting by putting daily struggles and common problems in objective, systematic terms." Parents will welcome this balanced approach. Agent: Howard Yoon, Ross Yoon Agency. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
