Description
Raising a child to be an authentic and mentally robust adult is one of life s great challenges. It is also, fortunately, not a matter of luck. There are many things to understand about how children s minds operate and what they need from those who look after them so they can develop into the best version of themselves.

The Good Enough Parent is a compendium of lessons, including ideas on how to say no to a child one adores, how to look beneath the surface of bad behaviour to work out what might really be going on, how to encourage a child to be genuinely kind, how to encourage open self-expression, and how to handle the moods and gloom of adolescence.

Importantly, this is a book that knows that perfection is not required and could indeed be unhelpful, because a key job of any parent is to induct a child gently into the imperfect nature of everything. Written in a tone that is encouraging, wry and soaked in years of experience, The Good Enough Parent is an intelligent guide to raising a child who will one day look back on their childhood with just the right mixture of gratitude, humour and love.
