Being a successful parent is not easy. Love is not enough to raise well-behaved ad confident children. It is an essential ingredient no doubt, but as a parent, you have to do more. Successful parenting requires tremendous patience and courage.
A well brought up child is the result of good parenting. No doubt. But have we wondered, what "good parenting" actually is? It does not always come naturally. Parents need certain techniques, which may even challenge some old-fashioned views, to raise a healthy happy child.
The Art of Successful Parenting is a step towards that direction. It contains ideas and strategies to help parents to first change themselves, for parents and children are partners in discipline.
While reading the book, you may say "sounds great but will it work for me?" As long as a parent keeps an open mind, the book offers appropriate training through many do's and don'ts. It provides both advice and help to the parents dealing with growing children.

I loved children since I was a child. I think most of the children love their fellow beings. I always thought that they are just beautiful, harmless and the most lovable. But when I became a mother, I discovered that like anything else on this earth, they too have another side to their personality. They can be annoying, irritating and even detestable.
I also realised that parenting can be one of the most difficult tasks in the world. Parenting is demanding. It requires countless sacrifices and continuous hard work. To raise confident, responsible and above all well behaved children can consume tremendous amount of your time, energy and patience. Most parents have all these, and yet they fail. Why?
Television is cursed and changing social values are held responsible for children's misbehaviour. But is it right to put the blame on all these? The answer is an absolute 'NO.' It is faulty parenting that, leads to faulty children.
Children are like raw earth. Their behaviour can be moulded into the desired shape or be left to be scorned at. Parents are like a potter who not only just produces but can also impart a desired shape to his creations.
This book is all about shaping your children's behaviour, so that they grow to be lovable, responsible and well behaved human beings.
