Wonderful Ways to Love a Child helps busy, stressed-out parents engage in positive parenting. With her trademark mix of inspiration and psychology, parenting expert Judy Ford shares essential tools and handy how-tos that will help readers put love into action to give their children the best start in life.

Sixty two-page essays offer practical suggestions gleaned from Ford's thirty years of working with families and true stories from many different kinds of families. Addressing the difficulties of tears, anger, exhaustion, and myriad other woes, Ford teaches parents how to shift their focus from hardships and mishaps to joy and shared experiences of growth and love.

Chapters include "Listen from Your Heart," "Encourage Encourage," "Admit Your Mistakes," and "Teach Values by Example." With honesty and humor, Wonderful Ways to Love a Child will help parents build strong, nurturing, loving families.

"Fortunately, parenting is a two-way street -- you walk together, and as you take them by the hand, they take you by the heart." -- Judy Ford on OPRAH!
