The truth about modern parenting is that many of us are: time poor but rich in reasons to feel guilty; confused about all the 'latest research' and what it means; anxious about childcare options versus staying at home; keen to know more about our children's development; eager to raise happy, confident, creative kids. Here's the book for real parents wanting to raise real kids in the real world. An up to date, accessible guide to child development and effective parenting, aimed at the realities of modern lifestyles in time-poor, often stressed single and double income households.. Knowing what the best and latest research says about your child's brain and personality development, how to tap into each stage creatively, and how to create the kind of stable and happy home in which they will flourish is one key to discovering that elusive life "balance" that everyone craves.
