Is there anything simple about raising kids? I don't think so! But there are tools out there that can help make raising kids easier. Advice from those that have gone before you can NEVER hurt! Dr. Todd Cartmell, a clinic child psychologist and author, has written 8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids and it breaks up parenting into 8 different tools:
For each tool, Cartmell provides Connecting Tips and very useful advice that parents can take and put into action immediately. This book is so practical and relate-able that anyone can take it and make it work for them. The chapters are short and make it possible for even the busiest parents to find time to chew on parenting tips. I was impressed with this parenting tool - it's a book written for the average man with practical, down-to-earth, ideas.
