About the book

Today’s parents are the most informed and some might say attentive of any generation of parents before them, so why are today’s children so lacking in resilience and seemingly unprepared for adulthood?

The New Parenting Manifesto challenges the ways we’ve come to think about what’s best for our children. It offers practical advice for navigating modern parenting dilemmas and nurturing a more future-focussed approach, where the end goal is to raise happy, well-functioning adults who are able to cope with whatever life throws at them.

Help your child to be:

  • Competent at life skills
  • An articulate thinker
  • Emotionally aware but not fragile
  • Well-mannered
  • Secure and confident but not arrogant
  • Emotionally intelligent
  • Able to have healthy relationships
  • Cared for and loved
  • Keen to learn and further themselves
