This is the first parenting book that has ever truly gripped me. Absorbing, clever and funny in equal measure renowned physchotherpist Philippa Perry shines a light on her view of parenting that crucially covers your own experience of being parented. There isn't a perfect plan - more like a bigger picture that is made of up equally important elements that lead to a good parent-child relationship. Judgement free this is the parenting book that we have decided to champion at Olive Loves Alfie.

If you are looking for a thoughtful and non judgemental present for new parents or parents already on their journey this would make a perfect gift.

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.

  • 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
