"'packed full of practical tips and real solutions to everyday dilemmas'" * Image * "'packed with solutions to the everyday challenges of family life... will help you tackle parenthood with renewed confidence'" * Practical Parenting * "Being a good parent is probably the most responsible and rewarding role you could ever have. It is also unquestionably the hardest. Unfortunately good parenting skills are not instinctive, and all of us need practical tips and guidance for success, satisfaction and survival. The 7-Day Parent Coach supplies all these needs and more in a comprehensive and reassuring way...a star is born." * Dr Hilary Jones * "Lorraine Thomas is not only inspirational, even more importantly she is extremely practical. She will open your eyes and help you take control in your parenting role. The 7 Day Parent Coach is a real investment." * Steve Chalke MBE, Broadcaster, Writer and Founder of Parentalk * "Hugely relieved that I would not be required to do any man-hugging or shout, 'I'm a wonderful father' to myself in a mirror, I was then amazed at how quickly Lorraine helped me find clear solutions to my niggle. Though cringingly obvious now, the answers were not quite so clear when I was up to my eyeballs in toys, work, questions about kittens, sleepovers, friends, cooking, more questions about kittens, maintaining a meaningful and fulfilling relationship with my partner, whilst at the same time trying to be a fun, positive, kitty-loving role model at all times. Implement the changes and watch things improve - it's as simple as that." * Dave Smith, Parenting Writer *
