For Parents

Say Hi to my third book!

Do you want to be a better mom or dad? Or you think your adult son or daughter could be a better parent to your grandkids? Perhaps you think some tips could be useful for a friend or relative? My book can help!

During the 1980s, I worked as a social Parenting-cover
counsellor here in Montreal. At the Parent Enrichment Project and later at Ville Marie Social Service Centre I was a family support worker helping families in difficulty and teaching parenting skills.

I saw quite a wide range of parent-child interactions during my home visits, as I strived to teach people how to become better parents. The Dos and Don’ts offered throughout my book are drawn from my time spent with some of these families.

Later on I taught “Introduction to Intervention with Families” at Dawson College’s Social Service Department.

And somehow, my two children and I managed to survive in a single-parent household. My daughter, Kathryn Presner, and son, Jeremy Presner, are doing great!

How to be an (Almost) Perfect Parent is available now on Amazon as an eBook, which can be read on a Kindle OR any device via the free Kindle Reader app.

      1. You’re welcome – that is admirable and you must have thought about writing a book for a long time then. What did I hear about books and Amazon earlier today as I thought about you? I heard it out of the corner of my ear and knew you self-published and wondered if it would affect you. I heard the story once, but, as you know, the news is full of the mid-term elections tomorrow and nothing else. Will Google and see if I can find the story. If so, will reply again here.
