"I was immediately drawn in, and thought it was beautiful in look and feel but above all, pitched so well in tone and content – readable but not dumbing down the subtlety or complexities of relating. Such a great structure around those 15 topics – as it means a parent isn’t swamped – you just go to the one you are worried about. I am finding my thoughts extended and understanding deepened by reading it. It’s really WELL DONE!”
Steve Biddulph, psychologist and world-renowned parenting author.
