Audio Book Summary
'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
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.
'The book everyone is talking about has spent more than 16 weeks in the hardback bestseller lists, and is an interesting read whether or not you have children. Narrated by the author, a renowned psychotherapist, her advice on navigating parenthood and reflecting on your own upbringing is given extra emphasis and authority by her narration. In audio form, it feels like having your own private therapy session.' Daily Mail
