    Parenting in a PC World-New Book By Respected Child Psychologist

    From helicopter parenting to free-range parenting and everything in between, it’s no secret theparenting landscape is forever shifting. With so much conflicting information as to what works and what doesn’t, it’s easy for parents to lose sight of how to be an effective leader in their family. The pressure to remain politically correct adds even more confusion to the mix: spanking, once a common practice parents swore by, just became illegal in France, making it the 52nd country to ban the corporal punishment at home.

    So what are parents to do? How can they cut through the noise to determine the most effective way to raise well-adjusted, intelligent children?

    Enter: Child advocate, educator and psychological therapist Domenick J. Maglio, PhD., who answers these questions and more with his latest book, In-Charge Parenting: In a P.C. Nation. Dr. Maglio utilizes his over 45-year career working with kids, as well as his own experience raising four successful children and eleven grandchildren, to share with parents everywhere the most impactful ways to instill critical moral values in their kids.

    A sometimes controversial, yet powerful guide to successful parenting, In-Charge Parenting provides sound advice on how parents can take back their power and raise thoughtful global citizens. Topics and themes explored in In-Charge Parenting include:

    • How being a parent is a sacred duty that requires them to teach the child to survive without them and be productive members of society.
    • That parents who let their child dictate to them gives the child a distorted vision of reality. It is a parent’s obligation to be in charge and treat their child accordingly.
    • The importance of giving a child clear, definitive consequences for positive or negative behavior and why it is essential for moral value lessons.
    • A discussion on whether we need to bring back now politically incorrect parenting methods such as moderate spanking.
    • And much more!
