Modern Parenting: Tricks Tips and Traps by Steve Hughes.

Hi Readers,

This talk was sent to me by a friend of mine and it is very good. When you have a spare hour and half (Yes it is long) but well worth the listen. It really challenges our modern day parenting of praise and looks at some 'old school parenting' techniques and argues why some of these are better for our children's mental health and well being. It is Steve Hughes (bio from his website)
