In Parenting: Getting It Right, Andy and Sandra combine their experience and wisdom into a guide that helps readers understand and live by essential parenting principles. In an inviting, conversational approach that is both informative and accessible, the Stanleys help readers understand the most important goal in parenting and learn the steps to pursue it by:

Learning the four distinct stages of parenting

Clarifying the primary goal of parenting and developing a parenting orientation around that goal

Identifying and adapting their approach--not their rules--to their children's distinct personalities

Deciding on their shortlist of non-negotiables and learning to stick to it


You don't have to constantly doubt if you're getting it right as a parent. Start here and feel confident about raising a healthy and happy family.
