Thereas a new set of 3Rs for our kidsarespect, responsibility, and resilienceato better prepare them for life in the real world. Once developed, these skills let kids take charge, and let parents step back, to the benefit of all. Casting hover mothers and helicopter parents aside, Vicki Hoefle encourages a different, counter-intuitiveayet much more effectiveaapproach: for parents to sit on their hands, stay on the sidelines, even if duct tape is required, so that the kids step up. Duct Tape Parenting gives parents a new perspective on what it means to be effective, engaged parents and to enable kids to develop confidence through solving their own problems. This is not a book about the parenting strategy of the dayawhat the author calls aPost-It Note Parentingaabut rather a relationship-based guide to span all ages and stages of development.
