ILWACO, Wash. (PRWEB) January 06, 2016
Working in social services gave Diane Zimmerman an intimate glimpse into the challenges of parenthood. She has also seen how painful and complex it can get when the state steps in to intervene in the upbringing of children in the event that families fail. In her new book, “Parenting” (published by Xlibris), she presents a method of living that supports healthy kids and happy families.
“Parenting” is useful for parents, families and anyone who wants to repair broken relationships, feel successful or help make the family whole again. At the core of this book is the message that it is indeed possible to have a happy, healthy and balanced family. The author hopes that her work will foster an atmosphere of peace and safety in homes and families.
“At any given time hundreds of American families are being monitored by the courts because they have been unable to keep themselves safe and stable,” Zimmerman says. “Each of these families needs to know the contents of this book.”
Timely and relevant, “Parenting” is a treasure trove of practical insights for anyone who wants to improve the distressing state of today’s families.
