Through his many other best-selling books on raising children, John Rosemond has become a voice of reason for millions on the topic of traditional parenting. This book, John Rosemond’s New Parent Power! (Volume 11) combines two of Rosemond’s most successful volumes: Parent Power! and his 6 Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children.
This new volume is a revised and updated compilation of some of the best advice for raising your child as a member of the family instead of having the family revolve around the child. One of the main premises of this book is that parents have more experience and wisdom than children, and it is their role to teach children what part they play in the family. Parent must lay out ground rules for their children and make them aware of what will happen if they disobey.
John Rosemond’s New Parent Power! does an excellent job of showing why children are the way they are, and how parents can help them develop their child in a way that will create a productive, happy and meaningfully contributing citizen. He explains how children need discipline, structure and order, even if they don’t always show it. Children look to the parent as a source of authority, so it’s critical that the parent play this part effectively. Rosemond brings his own role as a parent and grandparent into his perspective on how to love and raise healthy children in a way that will benefit both parent and child in the long-term, without using attachment parenting.
