The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read

Audiobook
'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.

  • 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.
