Karen Phillip is the author of this book. She holds a post graduate Counselling degree in Family Relationships and has been a Family Counsellor for nearly two decades. She has worked with many families who experience behavioural problems with their young children. Phillip is a mother of three. She has worked and taught thousands of children over the past decades and has seen many behaviours that can be adjusted easily through better modelling, fair rules and clear boundaries.

Parents now seem scared to set appropriate boundaries, and their children are ruling their homes and lives. This needs to stop, the role of the parent is to parent, to guide, teach and to role model for our children, as this is how every child learns values, standards and boundaries. Let’s stop the disorder and chaos in our homes. This will then also carry over to our schools and communities.
