Book Summary: ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Sangeeta Gupta spent her childhood in a joint family. After graduating in Commerce from Sri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi, she earned her Masters Degree from the Delhi School of Economics. Thereafter, she completed her B.Ed. The mother of two teenage daughters, besides her interest in reading and writing, the author also assists her husband in his pharmaceutical marketing business. In the days of yore before the advent of television, the Internet and other extraneous influences, parenting was a simple task, especially in a joint family milieu. Today, bringing up children is a more arduous, complex and delicate task. The common-sense guidelines in this book will ensure you maintain just the right balance between firm and flexible parenting, as per the attitude, aptitude and ability of your child. Besides negative influences from the electronic media, children are especially vulnerable to peer pressure. How you handle your children during their formative years can make all the difference between having courteous, well-adjusted children who respect elders, peers and friends or being saddled with ill-mannered kids who are a law unto themselves. The book covers all the important aspects of childrearing to help you become a role-model parent. CONTENTS: PART I INTRODUCTION 1. Simple and Complex Relationships 9 2.
