The Parent's Handbook shows parents how they can become more knowledgeable, confident and successful in relating to their children.

The STEP approach to parenting is based on the belief that every child and every parent has equal human worth and dignity. All are entitled to mutual respect.  The system of discipline taught in STEP stresses this type of relationship.   The authors believe that parents should provide opportunities for children to make decisions, within limits, allowing children to be responsible for their decisions.
