About The Book

Being a parent these days can feel overwhelming and exhausting. There is so much information out there that leaves parents conflicted and confused, yet what every parent needs is to feel confident knowing that what they’re doing is best for their child.

In this revolutionary book, the authors, who are the founders of the Institute of Child Psychology, child psychologists, and moms with an immense social media following, have the answers parents desperately need, and have developed an approach to parenting that truly works. They have taken the latest research  in neuroscience and developmental psychology and woven in concrete strategies to create an essential roadmap for parenting. Here you will find the secrets to raising children who are kind, empathic, self-regulated, emotionally intelligent; and who become gritty, resourceful, successful critical thinkers who can handle hard things.

“The Parenting Handbook: Your Guide to Raising Resilient Children” contains the essential ingredients every parent needs to tackle tough parenting problems, implement effective discipline strategies, navigate screen time or bedtime battles, manage meltdowns, or learn how to lose it less on their kids.

This book contains a roadmap to tackle tough parenting problems, foster optimal brain development in children, and create positive mental health outcomes. It then translates this vital information into practical steps you can implement immediately.  This book is the ultimate guide to nurturing emotional regulation, resiliency, connection, and well-being in children.

“Tania and Tammy have woven together the many themes that come up so often in daily family life. They sensitively provide answers to the questions that sometimes confound us as parents. Reading this book will give you the feeling, “I can do this”, and provide you with the confidence to be the very best parent you can be.

Dr. Cindy Hovington

This book is a much-needed resource for all parents! As a neuroscientist, I LOVE that they started off by explaining the brain. If parents can understand the link between their child’s emotions and behaviors and how our own emotions impact our child, then we can learn how to respond to our children rather than react. Tammy and Tania have covered it ALL in this book in such a digestible way. Well done!

From the very first page of ‘The Parenting Handbook’, I was utterly captivated. Tammy and Tania don’t just talk about parenting; they take you on a transformative journey that illuminates the profound connections between our roles as caregivers and our own inner children. Reading this book, I found myself reflecting, understanding, and healing parts of my own past, all while gaining invaluable insights into raising the next generation. It’s more than just a guide— it’s a heartwarming embrace of the complexities and joys of parenthood.

“The Parenting Handbook  is a must-have for parents! Sprinkled with personal and professional anecdotes and based on the latest research on attachment theory, neurobiology, the power of play, and so much more, the authors explore all the biggest parenting challenges and provide practical, actionable tools for raising well-balanced kids with a strong parent-child connection at its core. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world and there is no “right way,” but The Parenting Playbook lays out a road map for all parents from all different backgrounds to explore themselves first, and then set the relationship quality with their child as the most important compass heading for life-changing results.
