- About the Author
Parenting styles today have changed with small families preferred over large families. This book takes a bold step in examining major parenting styles and putting forward negotiation parenting as the possible answer to small-family parenting. Section One explains what negotiation parenting is and the fundamental concepts behind it. Section Two compares major parenting styles and discusses what you as a parent can expect if you have adopted one or more of these styles. Section Three distils the idea of small-family parenting and the impact of bringing up children with this style.
