The Parent Compass – Cynthia Clumeck Muchnick & Jenn Curtis


Having no teens myself…nor having any little ones at all (unless you count my fur-baby…who…really is convinced that he’s a real child at this point), I feel like I don’t have a TON of experience parenting.

That being said, as an avid reader and over-preparer, I really like reading books like this.

It provides me with context and informational insights to behaviors I’ve noticed or that I might run into when I eventually have ankle-biters of my own.

This book provided a lot of really neat observations, scenarios and responses tailored to teenage needs – many of which I recognized from my own teen years.

I liked delving into the psychology of parenting and why the author would advice parents to approach issues in certain ways and directions.

All in all, this was a surprisingly fun book to read and definitely one I’ll be holding onto!!

With thanks to Familius for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review

One thought on “The Parent Compass – Cynthia Clumeck Muchnick & Jenn Curtis

  1. It’s hard to find decent parenting books because I feel like too many say things that are just…blindingly obvious. At least with books geared towards parents of toddlers/infants. What I notice often is things like “Instead of screaming at your toddler to stop crying, try asking why he’s upset.” Like, no sh*t Sherlock??? If you’re doing things like that you’re probably not the kind of person going out and looking for parenting books.
