"As parent coaches, we highly recommend this resource!" -Deana Thayer and Kira Dorrian, creators of Future Focused Parenting and co-hosts of the popular parenting podcast, Raising Adults

The Parent's Complete Guide makes your parenting easier by explaining how to teach each subject and how to get buy-in from your kiddos.


"Encouraging and cheerful, Sherry Rhodes’s The Parent’s Complete Guide takes the mystery out of what, when, and how to teach children the skills they need to navigate life, from birth to eighteen. " - Foreword Reviews

Using proactive, instead of reactive, parenting, you'll be able to prevent many problems before they occur

The Parent's Complete Guide uses numerous examples and personal stories to underscore each lesson. Also included are potential answers for your children when they are faced with negative peer pressure. Some examples:

  • For sex: "I couldn't possibly sleep with everyone who asks me!" (Said with a smile)

  • To smoke: "Why would I want to poison myself and smell bad in the process?"

  • To try drugs: "My parents do random drug testing"

  • To give friends free stuff from their place of employment: "Sorry, but I'd like to keep this job."


Each topic will explain how you can teach your child, AND how to gain their cooperation.


The result? A more peaceful family; responsible, cooperative children; a calmer you.
