Here is another great parenting resource 
recommended by an MI Parent Edge member...
The Self-Driven Child
by William Stixrud, Ph.D. & Ned Johnson

"The Self-Driven Child is my favorite parenting book so far this year!  I read it, then bought the audible so I could skim it again in the car and choose parts to have my child listen to.  The premise of the book is how to build intrinsic motivation, but it goes way beyond this topic.  I love that there is brain science behind the advice and concrete ideas on how to implement the changes.  This made me feel great about hard decisions I’ve already made and gave me lots of ideas about going deeper.  I put one change to work this week and saw amazing results from my child and myself.  It’s easy for me to fall into the category of making the decisions for my children and by trying the tips in this book, I realized we wound up at the same decision, but with a drastically better result."
