9780091923914: How Not to F*** Them Up

A leading child psychologist argues that children under three do not need training—it's getting one's head straight as a parent that is important

As a mother, are you comfortable in your skin? Want to know how best to be a working or stay-at-home mother? Babies have very simple needs, yet many parents are overwhelmed with elaborate advice on how to meet them. Drawing on extensive interviews and the latest clinical research, this book identifies three basic types of mother: the Hugger, the Organiser, and the Fleximum. Outlining the benefits and pitfalls of each, this book shows you how to recognize which style suits you best and outlines simple strategies to reconcile personal ambitions with the needs of your family. Empowering and provocative, Oliver James will help you make the best choices for bringing up a happy, confident child.

Review:

"A book that you can trust with your children" * The Independent * "In a perfect world every parent would have a parenting masterclass before the baby arrives. This is the next best thing!" * Arabella Weir * "At last, something for the modern mother! A sane voice amid the shrill cacophony of childcare books" * Imogen Edwards-Jones * "James is truly on the side of women and creating a society in which parenting and the issues it raises are shared between both partners." -- Louise Carpenter * The Times Magazine * "I agree with Oliver James. Caring for a baby or toddler is personal, because you have to tune in to the child's changing needs." -- Sue Palmer * The Times *
