We’re constantly bombarded with advice—and criticism—on how to be good parents. From the press, social media, and online influencers right through to our friends and family, it seems everyone has an opinion on what is the right—and wrong—way to raise a child. Bottom line is, it’s not easy. But while our little ones aren’t born with a manual, this pocket book is just the one you need. It combines up-to-date academic research and straight-forward, sensible advice into 10 bite-sized chapters—the Ten Commandments of Parenting. The vision is simple: to raise children who are comfortable with who they are, and pleased with how they’re bought up. The goal is simple: use these golden nuggets to empower your decision-making, and trust your own judgement.
