– Your biggest daily achievement is now getting another human to burp.
This is the perfect gift for anyone with a new baby and a sense of humour.

Find out what they’re really thinking when you blow raspberries on their tum-tum or “steal” their nose, why they particularly enjoy spitting up over your nice clean top, and what that funny expression means when you make them wear “novelty” onesies.

There’s been a revolution in the family; it’s now all about the kids.
We’ve moved on from children being ‘seen and not heard’, but we’re now plagued with the worry of ending up with ‘that child’ – the one who’s running amok and is ill-prepared for life.
 
This book combines contemporary and traditional childrearing methods, bringing fresh thinking to some of the essential parenting issues of our time:
• Managing screen use
• Encouraging independence
• Finding the balance between school and play
• Compromising between parenting that’s pushy and not involved enough
• Establishing the ‘best of both worlds’ approach that
works in the modern world for modern families.
 
In this manifesto of new old-fashioned parenting there’s no pandering, no spoiling, and definitely no dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets at dinner time.
