Strictly Parenting
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RAISING SCHOOL-AGED KIDS

If you want to land your kids in therapy, then by all means, give them everything under the sun.' In his work as a family psychologist, Michael Carr-Gregg has noticed a worrying trend in our modern parenting styles, which sees kids running riot and parents running for cover. In our desire to give our children the best, we may have given them way too much, and overlooked the importance of setting boundaries. He believes it's a recipe for disaster. In Strictly Parenting, Michael asks parents to take a good hard look at the way they are parenting – to toughen up and stop trying to be their kids' best friends. Instead he offers practical, evidence-based solutions on how to take back the reins and start making the most of the precious family years. With a user-friendly A-Z guide covering all the tricky issues that parents encounter over the years – everything from birthday parties and bedtimes to sex and drugs – this is an invaluable and very timely resource for parents of all school-aged kids.

The Prince Boofhead Syndrome

The long-awaited, highly anticipated companion volume to The Princess Bitchface Syndrome – the must-have manual for all parents of teenage boys. Dr Michael Carr-Gregg believes that too many Australian boys have got it too easy – and the result is a generation of ‘boofheads’: boys with huge egos who think they are too good to stack the dishwasher or turn up to school. They expect the world and give little in return. But things are about to change. From the author of the groundbreaking Australian bestseller The Princess Bitchface Syndrome and researcher Elly Robinson comes this essential companion book for boys. It serves as both a warning and a rescue manual for all desperate parents – why have some boys today become such egotistical and lazy creatures, what can you do to prevent it, and how do you deal with the situation if you’re caught up in the crisis? This book will ask the tough questions and deliver straightforward advice so that the parents of today can take back control. It is essential reading for everyone living with a teenage boy.
