The rules have changed and these powerful tools will allow parents to confidently handle whatever situation comes their way and raise respectful, capable children who know how to appreciate successes and handle set-backs that are part of the real world.

Stephanie O'Leary, Psy.D., a Clinical Psychologist specializing in Neuropsychology, today released Parenting in the Real World: The Rules Have Changed. Drop The Guilt. Handle any Parenting Situation in 7 Simple Steps. The new book is not the typical parenting how-to manual. Instead, Dr. O’Leary delivers no-nonsense, effective tools using a refreshing, conversational style that will have parents nodding their head, laughing out loud, and thinking, “Finally! Someone who gets it!”

“Whether you have toddlers or teens, time goes by at warp speed so you have to find ways to teach important life lessons amidst the daily chaos,” said Dr. O’Leary, a wife and mom of two. She understands the reality parents face in juggling daily responsibilities while navigating new challenges—like managing screen-time and Internet safety—and shares heart-felt, personal stories that assure readers she’s been around the parenting block.

The book outlines 7 trusted steps with Chapter Titles that read, "Listen: The Art of Biting Your Tongue," "Validate: How to Tell Them You Get It, Even If You Don't,” and “Respect: Because What Goes Around Comes Around.” Dr. O’Leary shared, “The rules have changed and these powerful tools will allow parents to confidently handle whatever situation comes their way and raise respectful, capable children who know how to appreciate successes and handle set-backs that are part of the real world.”

These practical strategies are the same tools Dr. O’Leary uses at home and in her private practice. She has seen these tried and true strategies successfully transform parent-child relationships time and again, creating unbreakable bonds and helping parents like their children as much as they love them.

Parenting in the Real World is a unique page-turner that sets itself apart from other parenting books by making a strong case for the value of a parental self-care (without guilt!). The use of interactive QR Codes allow readers to quickly scan a page with their smartphone or tablet and view Dr. O’Leary’s videos offering even more insight and a deeper reading experience.

Dr. O’Leary shared, “Kids come into my office and tell me they notice their parents using these tools and making changes, and it has a tremendous impact. The book is a way to share this intel with moms and dads so they can gain confidence and feel empowered. It’s just a matter of helping parents say what they mean to say so everyone gets more of what they truly want.”

Parenting in the Real World is available on Amazon for $12.97.
