What do you do on those days when you love - but don't like - your kids? As educators, parenting coaches and parents themselves, authors Julie Freedman-Smith and Gail Bell deeply understand the day to day challenges of parenting. In 2002 they founded Parenting Power in Calgary to provide empathetic, non-judgemental support and practical skills to other parents facing similar struggles. In A Year of Intentional Parenting, Julie and Gail give busy parents one practical tip per week for improving communication with their kids, smoothing out persistent conflicts and acting intentionally. Full of straightforward, sometimes poignant, and often humourous advice, this collection will prove invaluable for parents who want to work through the trials of modern parenting with loving kindness and fun.
