Michael has written 10 books for parents, nine of which you can find in this online bookshop. He’s gathered his three favourite books into a handy, value pack for parents who want to learn his philosophies and techniques. Here he explains why he chose each book for this pack:

“I chose my first book ‘One Step Ahead’ as it’s been the go-to book for so many parents for advice about common challenges such as sibling fighting, getting kids to bed, attention-seeking and power-hungry children. It’s sat by the side of the bed of a generation of parents.

Why first borns rule the world and last borns want to change it’ was the ground-breaking book that first introduced Australian parents to the impact that family position has on a child’s personality and character. It’s the book that gives parents the jump on their siblings and friends, as well as their children.

Spoonfed Generation: How to raise independent kids’ is the seminal guide to raising independent, resilient kids at every stage of child’s development. The message of ‘doing less so you kids can achieve more’ currently has huge resonance with parents inside and outside Australia.”
