Twenty-six letters. Twenty-six lessons. Caregiving environments, schools and child-centered organizations assign one letter per week to complete the alphabet in full twice each year!

This fun little book is a simple “how to” guide for new parents. It is intended to be a quick and easy way to get professional parenting advice in small bites! The Healthy Parent's ABCs is parenting made simple. Laid out in twenty-six sections corresponding to the letters of the English alphabet, couples, groups or classes can move from one lesson to the next, one letter at a time. It’s an entire curriculum for anyone!

Well-suited to the needs and abilities of both moms and dads, it spans parents of any age from any culture, from parents with little or no education, limited English and financial resources to those with advanced educational degrees. The goal is to empower parents to raise healthier kids by:

  • being clear, calm and safe

  • building consistency between parenting partners

  • building both consistency and partnerships between parents, teachers and other caregivers

The Healthy Parent’s ABCs is Book 3 in the Healthy Parenting series.
