The secret to raising well-behaved, contented children


In this clear and practical guide, I introduce you to the 3Rs, my incredibly simple and highly effective technique for bringing up well-behaved and happy children.

Based on twenty-five years of fostering experience when I cared for over 150 children, as well as raising my own, I am now sharing the secret of my success.

• Reasons why children misbehave
• How to stay in charge
• Turning around a difficult child
• Tantrums in public

• Diet and behaviour

Happy Kids is a must-have for parents, step-parents, grandparents, carers, teachers, nannies, child-minders; in fact, anyone who is responsible for children!

Happy Kids is a compendium of common sense advice on how to bring up children to be well-behaved and happy using Cathy Glass 3 Rs technique. The author has written in a clear style with wit and humour.

I now apply the 3R’s to my own children and children I care for and can honestly verify that Cathy’s 3Rs technique does work whatever the child’s age or behaviour problem. I am sure it will work for you too!

I loved her no-nonsense, down to earth approach, I could hear her voice from her fostering books. I would certainly recommend this book even if your children are teenagers and young adults. What she says makes so much sense.

Drawing on personal experience, Glass covers a host of problems, including sibling rivalry, special needs and changing behaviour.
