IT'S OK TO GO UP THE SLIDE
Renegade Rules for Raising Confident and Creative Kids
Heather Shumaker

Heather Shumaker has sparked much discussion with her “renegade rules for raising competent and compassionate kids.” In this follow-up book, she takes on new, controversial issues like banning homework, technology use and skipping kindergarten school. Shumaker, also, offers broader guidance on how parents can control their own anger and move from an overscheduled life to one of more free play. Parenting can too often be reduced to shuttling kids between activities, but Shumaker challenges parents to re-evaluate how they're spending their precious family time. This book helps parents help their kids develop important life skills in an age-appropriate way. Most important, parents must model these skills, whether related to money management, nutrition, housekeeping, developing charitable habits or coping emotionally with setbacks. Sometimes being a good parent means breaking the rules.
