Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: 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.
