About the book

We all have busy lives but want to be the best parent to our child, without compromise.

Many of us turn to the internet when we want a snap answer to a parenting dilemma, but how do we determine what is reliable information? This book is the antidote to those overwhelming search engine results. It’s a one-stop source for time-poor parents who need reliable, tried and tested advice on all the parenting conundrums from classic to topical, such as:

  • What’s the best way to encourage good behaviour?
  • How can I ensure my child has a healthy body image.
  • How can I ensure they do their homework with minimal fuss?
  • How can I get my children to play nicely together instead of fight?

With no-nonsense solutions, each designed to be read in less than 5 minutes, this book will help to boost your confidence when making important parenting decisions.
