A wonderful book -- Gillian Anderson, actress, activist and
I absolutely loved this book. The author really 'gets' the challenges of modern parenting and through her extensive contact with parents and hearing first-hand about their experiences, for the first time I really felt understood. I am going to treasure this book and keep it by my side, so I can dip into it any time I am feeling overwhelmed or stressed. It makes you feel like you suddenly have a wise friend helping you along this difficult parenting journey, full of useful, practical tips. This book is about the power of mindfulness and self-awareness, and it's so much more than that; it shows you how to develop a deeper connection with yourself and your child - and leads you both on the path to resilience. -- Josie Jacobs, positive psychologist and mother
The messages and learnings inside are helpful for any parent who feels held back by feelings of inadequacy, stress and anxiety... there were sections which resonated with me immediately, and I can't believe they won't also with a great number of mums and dads out there, who find themselves struggling a little bit. [This] step-by-step guide navigates the demands of being a parent alongside the demands you put on yourself - and those of others - and coming out of it feeling like you're on top, instead of always fighting a rearguard action. * absolutely-mama.co.uk *
