As a parent of 3 teenagers, I’ve read my fair share of how to parenting books. This is the one I wish I’d had access to when my kids were really playing up and testing my patience when they were tots. The author uses her in-depth understanding of the science of WHY kids behave the way they do to help parents understand how THEY should behave for their kids. Yet she doesn’t blind you with science but tells the story and passes on the tools in an engaging, effective, practical and informed way. I’d really recommend for parents of kids of any age!
Love the introduction chapter, I can relate to kate. I do feel like this book is the way forward for our power struggles with our toddler. This is the way we parent but haven't found advice like this before. It's very easy to read. Great book! Hope there will be more books by Kate for older children and children with special needs.
I have never read a parenting book , preferring to let my children grow and develop without a book telling me what they should be doing at different ages. I have a keen interest in the early years having followed the work of the duchess of Cambridge in the area. This book is simply a must read for parenting now BUT also to have an impact in society in the future. What happens in our children's lives from 0-5 years impacts how they cope as adults. The book is filled with simple easy to follow techniques to create emotionally balanced children and indeed happier parents. You will find yourself thinking wow I wish had known this or that but also comforted in knowing you have done alot of wonderful things mentioned in the book already. The book explains why these things are important. It is not at all preachy or full of medical jargon. Its easy to follow and full of real life anecdotes. I bought it on my kindle but also ordered a hard copy so I could underline and high light parts that really resonated with me
Do yourself, your children and society a favour and buy this book.
An absolutely fantastic and insightful book into the growing brains of young people. It's a fantastic book for parents, carers and even professionals. It is really helping me improve my knowledge of the brain functions of little minds!
An essential read for all parents to understand the trials and tribulations of young children in their formative years. With a mix of science and a touch of magic, I feel this book will really help any parent get to grips with the behaviour of their children. Easy to read and so ingeniously written. It all makes perfect sense. I can’t recommend this book more highly. A brilliant debut by Kate Silverton
