Judyth Piazza interviews Marge Flados, Author of Retro Parenting

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

M. L. Flados relates to the history and lifestyles of a former era with the knowledge of one who walked the walk and talked the talk. She writes with humor and the joy of life shines through the narrative.

A South Dakotan by birth, a Texan by marriage, her experiences as motivational speaker, registered nurse, fitness trainer, world traveler, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother add a special depth and perception to her writing.

She is a resident of Harlingen, Texas and describes herself as "a nice kid, a peachy dancer and most definitely retro." With a three generational family within hugging distance, she admits parenting is not funny, actually, but it is the only way she knows how to write and speak.

Retro Parenting is a must read for any parent facing the challenges of raising healthy, well adjusted children in today`s permissive society. As a Juvenile Division attorney who has worked with children and their families for over 35 years, I have seen the results and effects of misguided and destructive parenting techniques. The humor and practical approach offered in this book provides entertaining, useful guidance and should be on every parent`s night stand for a quick practical answer to parenting questions. - Larry Abrahamson, J.D., elected District Attorney, Juvenile Division Chief, Eighth Judicial District of Colorado (ret.)

With straight forward and applicable advice, Retro Parenting offers a "how to" guide for rearing and nurturing children. The suggestions Flados provides can be implemented in both the home and educational environments. Retro Parenting provides a relevant guide for parents who strive to promote positive values and respect, consequently laying a foundation for their children`s present and future success. - Christina Mari Saenz, M.A., LSSP, Licensed Specialist in School Psychology 

As an educator, evaluator, behaviorist and parent of four, Retro Parenting is a must-have ready reference for all parents. Filled with the practical "mom-sense" advice that and with just the right amount of humor, Flados provides parents with classic, practical answers. - Robin Buddle M.Ed., Educational Diagnostician, Behavior Strategist
