(Heather- New York) This book is an amazing combination of intelligence, integrity,
humility, confidence, and warmth. These ideas are fresh and make so much sense especially since Clay illustrates them through his personal teaching experiences. Unlike many other parenting books, this one not only suggests what to do, but where it comes from and why it works, and because it’s told through personal stories is also a very enjoyable read!

Tantrums, Troubles and Treasures is a book for parents in the 21st century who want to look at parenting from a different point of view.
All moms and dads from every walk of life can agree that being a parent is the hardest job in the world. Each person wants to be a good parent, and there are times when each of us are looking for guidance. Whether it be from our own parents or from friends, we have all come to realize that there is no such thing as being the perfect parent. Everyone is learning and doing their best. Every once in awhile there is a book out there that can help make us see parenting in a different light. Tantrums, Troubles and Treasures, is certainly that eye opener.
This is a book that Clayton Paul Thomas has created that uses his life experiences to help other parents. He talks about The Art of Presence, Confidence and Inquisitiveness, Education, Patience, Discipline, and many other topics that parents face on a constant basis. He often starts each section with a story that relates to the topic, then moves into examples, situations, and suggestions. It doesn’t matter if a child is a parents 1st or 8th, all parent’s will find themselves nodding their heads going, “Yes, I’ve been there!” and all parent’s will be able to reflect on what they have done right, as well as what they have done wrong.
The author does not preach his teachings, but merely gives advice in hoping that an example that he has given, or a story that he has told, will somehow hit home to his readers and in that way have the reader look at their problem from a different angle to find the solution. What parent’s will remember is that we, as parent’s, are our children’s best examples. Children will emulate what they see and what they hear. So be the best role model possible. Children should be learning about life from their parent’s, not their friends.
Parents will find helpful the assignments at the end of every section or chapter. The assignments, again, makes parents look at their past situations and causes them to reflect, they in turn, find themselves thinking with more clarity then they were in the moment.
Parents will enjoy this 162 page parenting guide and look at parenting from a different point of view. Whether you are an experienced parent or not, every parent will be able to find something in the book that will benefit them.
