"Of maximum help if read while pregnant, but still an essential read if your children are grown-up."

"This book is for parents who not only love their children, but want to like them too." In her 20 years as a psychotherapist, Perry has learned about how strong, loving bonds can be forged with children. But it's in the voice of a fellow parent that this compelling book is chiefly written, as Perry—who has a daughter with husband Grayson Perry—explains how the way we were brought up impacts on our own parenting. Of maximum help if read while pregnant, but still an essential read if your children are grown-up.
