Review

A beautifully comprehensive look at what it might mean to be a sane and emotionally intelligent parent; hugely warm, wise, hopeful and encouraging that, with a little self-reflection and insight, we could all learn to spare the next generation a few of our own troubles (Alain de Botton)

This is a kind and forgiving book that advocates kind and forgiving behaviour, to ourselves and our partners (Cathy Rentzenbrink, The Times)

This book is guidance on how to bond with your children based on understanding how your own upbringing affects your parenting (Lorraine Candy, Sunday Times)

Philippa Perry is the wisest coolest person (Emma Gannon)

I'm not a parent. But I fucking LOVE Philippa Perry and think she's wise and brilliant so this will be amazing (Bella Mackie)

Not got kids? It doesn't matter, as the wonderful psychotherapist Philippa Perry's latest book is actually about using our pasts to understand ourselves (...) it's also an excellent book for reminding yourself: life is hard and you're doing your best - so try not to beat yourself up for everyday mistakes (Stylist)

EVERY parent should read this book, however old their child. In fact, any adult in a relationship should read it too. Distilled in less than 250 pages is a road map to healthy relationships. Required reading (Express)

If you're determinedly not a self-help kind of reader (like me), make an exception for [this book]. And if you're not a parent, don't dismiss it. The message is one of non-judgemental kindness. The sophisticated psychoanalytical version of my "count to ten and then say something kind" advice to my kids (and myself) when things start to fall apart (Vogue)

Book Description

A parenting book for people who don't buy parenting books.
