About The Partner-Parent Principle:

The Partner-Parent Principle is filled with practical and positive relationship advice for parents, to help couples enjoy the great bits of parenthood, brace for the bad and hopefully get through it all with their relationships (and senses of humor) still intact.

The book is based on detailed research and extensive interviews, and gives a unique insight into both the female and male points of view. As once-equal couples often find themselves living very different lives to each other when kids come along, it is essential that they understand more about what each other is going through if they're to avoid the all-too-common curse of resentment. It means Dads will want Mums to read it just as much as Mums will want Dads.

The book is crammed with quotes from men and women at the frontline of parenting young kids: many funny, many sad, and many that will strike a clear chord with other parents, giving much-needed reassurance that they're not alone.

The book looks at ways couples can better prepare themselves for the onslaught of parenting, understand each other better and find ways to share the good and bad bits, find help from family, friends and support networks, find time away from the kids so they've got more energy when they're with them, cope with the extra pressures that come from having tough kids or suffering depression and even improve their sex lives.

There is also some expert advice - and warning - about what really happens if parents do part. One in five couples now split by the time their children are 5 years old and often damage their kids in the process.

In short, this book is timely - and necessary - for every couple working towards a healthy relationship with their children and each other.

Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book! :)

Please note that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . follow the directions there to be listed. :)

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

Oliver Roberts, author of The Partner-Parent Principle, recently sat down with the South China Morning Post.

Susan Schwartz begins: "Often the most challenging part of becoming a parent can be what other parents don't, or won't, tell you. Oliver Roberts, co-author of newly released e-book The Partner-Parent Principle, says parents talk at mind-numbing length about the gains a child has brought to their lives."
