Since writing the first edition of this book over 10 years ago, and with my own children 10 years older, I have come to realise that parenting is for ever. Of course, the situations you have to deal with change, the amount of control and contact you have with your children changes, but the need for your guidance and intervention at crucial times in their lives remains the same. I have also come to realise that the STOP THINK DO method of parenting described in this book never outgrows its usefulness. Parenting really is like driving a car: once you learn to control yourself, follow a few basic road rules and practise a lot, you get better at it – even if a few accidents occur along the way! This is a ‘how-to’ manual on parenting for all adults with children in their care. It teaches parents new skills for managing children, and also skills to teach children for managing others. These skills include what to say and do when faced with children’s problem behaviour, how to talk and relate better with your children to avoid problems in the first place, and how to improve your children’s relationships with others, including their peers and siblings. These are all skills you can learn with patience and practice. Parenting can be a hazardous road. But you must think it is worth travelling or you wouldn’t be reading this book. Most parents wish they had been better prepared before they began the journey. It is a shame children are not born with a user’s manual attached! This book may in fact serve the purpose. Fortunately, it is rarely too late to learn. And your children will be better prepared when they reach parenthood because of your efforts to show and teach them good social behaviour now.
