5.0 out of 5 stars A gently transformative guide. Sublime!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 August 2020
A gently transformative guide for all parents and carers wanting to bring a little more joy, magic and calm to their days. This book is filled with accessible, specific advice, reassuring words and inspiration for all.

I read this during lockdown (and oh boy did I need this book back then!) but it’s one I will read again and again whenever I need reinvigorating, and it will be just as useful and just as relevant.

Even the tone is encouraging - it feels like it’s written by a friend - kind and understanding; free from judgement, never patronising, and without technical jargon.

I’m tempted to call it a hug with words, because that’s what it feels like to read, but it’s more substantial than that. It’s a hug that lingers, and with a warmth that nourishes deeply.

Packed full of ideas and inspiration, Extraordinary Parenting summarises relevant advice and insights from experts and specialists; gives bullet pointed prompts for reflection (opportunity for ‘aha’ moments and honest realisations - I found these really helpful); suggests activities for children of all ages; offers plentiful ideas for establishing meaningful rhythm; and gives support for positive communication.

There’s also an excellent chapter dedicated to self care. Usually self care is an afterthought, or a source of guilt or niggling annoyance, but not here. Eloise looks at self care from different angles and the message finally sunk in.

The first idea I adopted from this book was to light a candle at every mealtime, and it was an instant win. Amazing how such a simple idea can have such a positive impact on our days. I’m now excited to build on our daily and seasonal rhythms, whereas before reading this I was confused and frustrated.

Basically, it’s a lovely book, and pitched perfectly. Practical and substantial, without being overwhelming. Comforting and understanding, without being wishy washy.
