  • and much more


The Parent's Complete Guide makes your parenting easier by explaining how to teach each subject and how to get buy-in from your kiddos.


"Encouraging and cheerful, Sherry Rhodes’s The Parent’s Complete Guide takes the mystery out of what, when, and how to teach children the skills they need to navigate life, from birth to eighteen. " - Foreword Reviews


Using proactive, instead of reactive, parenting you'll be able to prevent many problems before they occur.


Sherry Rhodes uses numerous examples and personal stories to underscore each lesson. Also included are potential answers for your children when they are faced with negative peer pressure

  • For sex: "I couldn't possibly sleep with everyone who asks me!"

  • To smoke: "Why would I want to poison myself?"

  • To try drugs: "My parents do random drug testing"

  • To give friends free stuff from their place of employment: "Sorry, but I'd like to keep this job."


Each topic will explain how you can teach it to your child, AND how to gain their cooperation.


The result? A more peaceful family; responsible, cooperative children; a calmer you.
