You guys know I’ve been a long time fan of positive parenting expert Amy McCready.
My family has used her positive parenting eCourse for years and we’ve collaborated several times to offer free webinars on positive parenting topics like getting kids to listen without nagging or yelling (look for our next free webinar coming next month).
Last year Amy released a brand new book:
I was so happy when she sent me a preview copy and today I’m really excited to help her get the word out that it’s now available in paperback.
Which is great because it’s less than 50% of the original price!
I believe this book is something absolutely every parent can use in their arsenal. Especially this time of year when summer is over, routines and structure are now the name of the game, and kids’ behavior and attitudes may need a bit of tune up.
Preventing entitlement in my kiddos has been continuously lingering in my thoughts since C’s very first Christmas when gifts from loving aunts, grandparents, and my husband and I literally spilled from under the tree.
It can be such a tricky line trying to balance how much is too much with our kids and I am really so, so pleased that Amy has chosen to tackle the topic. She always has such concrete and tangible wisdom to share and this time around is no exception.
I really appreciate that, whatever topic she is tackling, Amy always leaves me with a step-by-step game plan to get started right away.
Here’s a little more about the new book from her publisher…
The Me, Me, Me Epidemic!
In today’s 24/7, often over-stimulated, over-indulged, can’t get enough culture – many parents struggle to find the means to not only say “no” – but to connect with their kids in a way that allows them to better learn to be RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and READY to meet a world where frankly, it’s NOT all about them.
With 35 incredible, easy-to-implement tools, parenting expert Amy McCready outlines the step-by-step strategies for empowering your kids without indulging them. Fueling their spirit – not just funding their wish-lists. Building bonds that can last a lifetime. Fostering compassion for others, rather than focusing on themselves. And parenting in powerfully positive, pro-active, life-changing ways.
This book is not meant to be a ‘shelf-sitter.’ It’s designed to be a go-to guide to solving some of your biggest parenting struggles, nurture closer, more respectful and resilient relationships, and taking some of that all too familiar stress out of the day-to-day business of raising great kids.
Our hope is that you’ll want to bookmark it, dog-ear it, refer back to it, share it, take-it-with-you, and read the parts that resonate with you over and over again.
Good stuff, right? And there’s even a pretty sweet bonus if you order now – all you need is your book order receipt # to claim it.

This book immediately motivated me to stop doing things for my children that they can do for themselves. My eyes were opened to the many ways my children could contribute to the family and become prepared to thrive in the real world.– Rachel Macy Stafford
