The No Wimpy Parenting Handbook

An Easy Guide For Reclaiming Your Parenting Power. Are you frustrated and at the end of your rope when it comes to parenting? The No Wimpy Parenting Handbook is a must-have resource for parents who are tired of having no power in their own homes! The No Wimpy Parenting handbook is meant to empower parents with easy tips and effective strategies to transform their homes. There is an epidemic of kids running the show and having way too much power in the family. As a result, parents feel helpless, exhausted, and hopeless in their own homes. Dr. Wynns, the author and founder of No Wimpy Parenting™, was inspired to start a movement, daresay a revolution, to empower parents to take back their power! Unlike other parenting books which collect dust on night stands or serve as coasters, the No Wimpy Parenting handbook can be absorbed in a few hours or days! Parents are invited to join the revolution and restore the proper balance of power and authority in the home. The No Wimpy Parenting handbook provides user-friendly tips on identifying power suckers, establishing effective discipline strategies, improving the bond with your children, and getting on the same page with your co-parent. In addition, sample charts, cheat sheets, and discount codes for customized consultations are available. The techniques and advice have already been soundly tested and successfully implemented in many families who have had No Wimpy Parenting coaching services. Do you feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the demands of parenting? Do you think you have tried everything and nothing works to change the unhealthy dynamics in your home? Don't give up! You are not alone. Join the No Wimpy Parenting revolution today!
