Save the Children Sweden

A Manual primarily aimed at parents, future parents, and those who support parents, such as parent educators, parent group facilitators, and family support workers. This Manual is based on findings from decades of research that reveal a great deal about how children develop and about effective parenting. It provides a foundation and a set of principles for parents that can be applied in a wide range of situations. The manual provides concrete answers to parents who want to raise their children without corporal punishment in a positive climate and also gives parents practice in thinking through their responses so that they are better prepared for parent-child conflict. It will help readers understand the links among child development, effective parenting and children’s rights.
