Each age has had its own ‘voice of authority’, from Dr Spock to Penelope Leach. Raising Happy Children is different. Supportive, informative and honest, it draws not only from the hands-on experience of its authors, but from a wide range of practical experts in their field. Contributors range from the obstetrician Yehudi Gordon to the director of the Institute for Family Therapy, Hugh Jenkins.
There has never been greater need for a book which shows understanding of the pressures and stresses on parents, while teaching them the much-needed practical skills. Picking up where most books leave off, its detailed and thought-provoking content focuses on the tough problems, contentious issues and crucial questions faced by all parents.
This is a book to enable – not to preach. Pragmatic and parent-friendly, humorous and intelligent, Raising Happy Children provides all the information and options you need to negotiate vital and stressful areas of parenthood.
