Badass Parenting: An Irreverent Guide to Raising Safe, Savvy, Confident Kids

Books Go Social. Jun. 2020. 302p. ISBN 9798637761531. pap. $16.95. CHILD REARING
In this irreverent guide to how to avoid danger, and protect and defend your children from predators and bullies, Scarlet (Heroic Parenting) shares that parents “compare others’ outsides to their own hot mess insides,” and that we are “all winging it and praying we don’t raise a serial killer.” The author’s intent is to build confidence in readers and enlighten, instead of sensationalizing violence. Statistics state that one-half of children experience some form of abuse at before age 18. Thus, says Scarlet, parents need a guide to being their child’s protector rather than their BFF. Knowledge is power, and the self-described “badass grandma” shares strategies for teaching kids to recognize danger that include role playing, family meetings, and sharing lessons from your own life.
VERDICT A needed topic for the times in which we live, this will be a welcome addition to any library.
