SANGER, Calif., September, 5, 2023 – In this era of intensive parenting and unprecedented
stress impacting family life, parents and their children are more stressed and anxious than ever.

culture that continues to promote increasingly intensive parenting. Enter Emily Edlynn's book
Autonomy Supportive Parenting: Reduce Parental Burnout and Raise Competent, Confident
Children with independent publisher Familius. As a clinical psychologist and mother of three,
Dr. Edlynn offers a refreshing and wholly science-backed approach that teaches parents why they should do less for their kids, how they can, and how it benefits everyone.
Autonomy-Supportive Parenting is the roadmap every smart but overwhelmed parent needs. This book breaks down parenting science’s best-kept secret about how to raise competent, confident, and connected kids with a set of research-tested strategies--without losing your mind. Written as a guide for each parenting season from early childhood to school age and adolescence, parents can zero in on the dilemma of the day whether it’s tablet tantrums or homework hassles. Dr. Edlynn offers guidance from the autonomy-supportive framework to help even the most stressed and worried parent face any parenting problem with calm and confidence. The result is raising children who not only feel understood, accepted, and loved, but self-sufficient and in charge of their lives and themselves.
