“This is a beautifully written, upbeat and inspiring book with a real heart.
You really feel Sue’s compassion, empathy and parenting expertise coming out on every single page. She neither patronises you nor makes you feel inadequate as a parent but instead dispenses the kind of parental worldly wisdom mixed with some great coaching tips that have made her a genuine parenting expert.
As I was reading through this book last night, I found myself wishing that I’d had it when my two boys were very young. So many things I could have done better with a dose of Sue Atkins to help.
Often with books of this nature you either get a celebrity aeroplane read – lots of filler and fluff but very little else or, an academic tome that has to be re-read several times before you get its gist. This is a book that really is packed full of parenting tips, wisdom and advice that any parent can resonate with and implement provided they are willing of course to make some changes and improvements to their parenting style and approach.
I really loved the sections on how to improve your relationship with your partner and how to connect with your kids as they get older. It really is a fabulous book that should be on the bedside table of every parent or guardian, well thumbed, highlighted and dogeared!”
