2017 Bestseller Skyrockets Your Parenting

Stop bribing, threatening or punishing—it’s time to win at parenting.

BONAIRE, GA – Jan. 4, 2017 Parenting Brilliantly, a website that provides solutions for busy moms and dads, announced today the release of SELF-MOTIVATED KIDS, a brand-new parenting guide, just in time for the new year. The book was written by owner and parenting mentor, Damara Simmons.

Daniel H. Pink, New York Times Bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind says SELF-MOTIVATED KIDS is “a smart, practical book for moms and dads who care about their kids’ intrinsic motivation.”

Damara Simmons, who has seventeen years of parenting experience, mentors moms and dads who want to succeed at parenting. She is a Certified Family Life Educator and holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University.

Simmons shared, “I am honored to have my book available for moms and dads who are tired of non-cooperative behaviors and are looking for alternative solutions to bribes, threats or punishments. I want them to have clear, actionable steps for creating an environment where their children listen better, cooperate more, and ultimately become self-motivated.”

Executive coach Marshall Goldsmith said, “I’ve learned how one tweak in the environment changes everything.” SELF-MOTIVATED KIDS explains how to make those tweaks in the home environment so children listen and cooperate, all on their own. This book answers questions like:

  • Where does intrinsic motivation come from?
  • What three psychological needs fuel this type of motivation?
  • How can parents meet these three needs so children are motivated to listen and respond?
  • What steps can be taken to create a home environment where children have the energy for action?

SELF-MOTIVATED KIDS challenges moms and dads to think critically about parenting tactics that have been passed down through generations and dare greatly as they deliberately try a new approach to parenting.

In four parts, SELF-MOTIVATED KIDS outlines how to create an environment where children can listen and want to cooperate:

  • Part One: Motivation explains unhealthy parenting behaviors to avoid, what motivation is, and where it comes from.
  • Part Two: Creating the Environment describes the three psychological needs that fuel intrinsic motivation in children.
  • Part Three: The Magic Formula focuses on how to communicate and interact with children so they more willingly cooperate.
  • Part Four: Where to Start? outlines an immediate action plan that results in children who are motivated from within.

SELF-MOTIVATED KIDS will skyrocket your skills so you can win at parenting in 2017.
