If there should ever come a day when parents are required to read a collection of reference manuals as part of the sign up/registration process for every little league, every competitive youth athletic program, every musical and academic program or cheerleading squad, RAISE THE CHILD YOU’VE GOT, NOT THE ONE YOU WANT should be part of that collection.”

Is your family-life stressful and unpleasant? Are you exhausted from never- ending battles? Do you wish your child were more patient…or more outgoing…or less impulsive…or simply different from who she is?

There is a way out of your endless loop of frustration.

Raise The Child You’ve Got — Not the One You Want is a book for parents who long to re-establish the loving connection they felt the first moment they cradled their newborn. Parenting expert Nancy Rose paves the way with a remarkably effective parenting style: Leading with Acceptance, which draws upon real-life parent-child relationships, current studies and groundbreaking methods for understanding your child’s inherent and unchangeable characteristics, or CoreSelf.

No matter how old your child is, this book will help you:

  • Discover what you can and cannot change about your child
  • Understand the power of acceptance in building a healthy parent/child connection.
  • Gain peace of mind as you raise your children to become their best, happiest selves.
