About the Book

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.

Preface

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.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
