Keep Calm and Parent On

A Guilt-Free Approach to Raising Children by Asking More from Them and Doing Less
Emma Jenner

The former British star of TLC’s Take Home Nanny lives, teaches, and nannies by this philosophy: if parents are in control, they can enjoy their children more. Easier said than done, right? Each chapter of her new book opens with a checklist of questions to ask when you run into a specific problem, whether it’s sleep, nutrition, communication, manners, or consequences. Jenner then breaks down each checklist, explaining how bad behavior is really just a habit that needs to be corrected. By connecting the dots in all areas of your child's life, you can understand why he or she is acting out and know how to fix it.
