♥ Do you love your child and loathe bad people who want to harm him? Then Heroic Parenting is for you! ♥
If you’ve ever lost sleep worrying about your child’s safety, you’re not alone. You may want to wrap your munchkin in a protective bubble and defend him from every harm but doing so could emotionally cripple him and make him more, not less, vulnerable to predators.
In Heroic Parenting, danger expert CJ Scarlet helps you teach your child how to handle himself in scary situations, ranging from bullying and digital dangers to sexual abuse and kidnapping.
After reading this book, you’ll feel more knowledgeable and confident in your ability to talk candidly with your child at his age and maturity level without scaring him to death. It’s time to ditch the worry and get some sleep!
This super informative, unputdownable book (with TONS of downloadable bonus content!) is the new bible for parents looking to raise safe, savvy, confident kids.
★ IMPORTANT NOTE!!! Heroic Parenting is an alternate version of Badass Parenting: An Irreverent Guide to Raising Safe, Savvy, Confident Kids—a much snarkier, edgier book that contains profanity. (If you’re NOT put off by foul language, you’ll definitely want to read Badass Parenting instead.) However, if you prefer a family-friendly version of the book, Heroic Parenting is for you. Know that while the swearing is redacted, the wisdom is not!
