Product Description

Expertly crafted parenting advice . . .

- Kirkus Reviews

Ken Dolan-Del Vecchio is the master of offering friendly and compassionate wisdom for people in relationships. His sense of humor and willingness to share his own personal challenges with parenting renders this a joyful and satisfying read.

-Lynn Parker, MSW, PhD; Professor Emeriti, University of Denver, Graduate School of Social Work; Family therapist in private practice

Simple Habits of Exceptional (But Not Perfect) Parents covers topics that we, as parents, face with great regularity—giving advice, negotiating boundaries, conveying respect, fostering self-esteem, and most importantly, cultivating joy.

This book is filled with real-life examples, stories that make the author’s advice come alive. Goethe wrote, “There are two things children should get from their parents: roots and wings.” This book will help you give your child both.

-Monica McGoldrick, MSW, PhD (h.c.); Director, Multicultural Family Institute and author of You Can Go Home Again

The greatest gift we can give our children is to help them surpass us, and this book shows how.

-Lloyd I. Sederer, MD; Medical Editor for Mental Health, The Huffington Post; Adjunct Professor, Columbia/Mailman School of Public Health
