Audio Book Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Every parent wants their child to be happy and every parent wants to avoid screwing them up. But how do you achieve that?

In this absorbing, clever and funny book, renowned psychotherapist Philippa Perry tells us what really matters and what behaviour it is important to avoid - the vital dos and don'ts of parenting.

Instead of mapping out the 'perfect' plan, Perry offers a big-picture look at the elements that lead to good parent-child relationships. This refreshing, judgement-free book will help you to:

· Understand how your own upbringing may affect your parenting
· Accept that you will make mistakes and learn what you can do about them
· Break negative cycles and patterns
· Handle your own and your child's feelings
· Understand what different behaviours communicate

Full of sage and sane advice, this is the book that every parent will want to read and every child will wish their parents had.
'Hugely warm, wise, hopeful and encouraging' Alain de Botton
'So clear and true ... Helpful for all relationships in life, not just parent-child' Nigella Lawson

    I enjoyed this book and it really did give me reason to think over how and why things happened the way they did in my life as a child. Again why parents acted the way they did while I was a nanny and again now the way I act and deal with situations as a parent. Not sure about the baby voices the narrator used though.
