Simple and Effective Ways to Help Your Child Be Their Best

By Naomi Richards - The UK's No.1 Kids Coach

Published by Vermilion on 2nd February 2012, £12.99 trade paperback original

  • Do you wish your child had more confidence?
  • Would you like to help them handle problems better at school or at home?
  • Would you like to give your child the life skills to thrive in the face of change and challenge?

Naomi Richards, the UK's leading kids coach and our latest Mummy blogger at Direct2Mum has been working with children and their parents for nearly 8 years. Just as adults can develop with a life coach or a mentor at work, so too can children. They can really benefit from you coaching them to handle challenges, such as making and keeping friends, dealing with peer pressure or bullying, sibling rivalry, getting homework done or dealing with a major change, such as moving schools or parents separating.

In The Parent’s Toolkit Naomi shares the key life tools she uses and teaches so that you can help your child successfully navigate childhood problems and grow up into a happy, confident and resilient young adult. As coaching is a collaborative process her tools include teaching your child positive self-talk, simple problem-solving techniques to encourage your child to arrive at the right solution to an issue, and specific advice for you as a parent to hone your own listening and coaching skills.

Aimed at parents with children aged 6+ and divided into the most important areas of a child’s life, The Parent’s Toolkit is packed with real-life examples, useful hints to help you in conversations with your child and creative ideas to help solve problems. Upbeat, insightful and incredibly practical, The Parent’s Toolkit is essential reading for any parent wanting to give their child the best start in life.
