Book Description

9 July 2009 Brilliant Lifeskills

About 2,000 babies are born in the UK every day, and every parent wants their children to grow up to fulfil their potential and to be happy and well balanced individuals. They also want to develop and foster a happy, harmonious home and family life. But being a Mum or a Dad is rarely easy and you don’t get any training in how do it.


Brilliant Parent is the definitive on-the-job training manual for parents who want to be better at the job. It is packed full of all the clever little things to do and say, together with new ways of thinking, that will make sure parents can get the very best from their child in every situation.


Brilliant Parent offers parents the knowledge and skills they need to understand their child, allowing the child to grow up into a confident adult who is unique, individual, self aware, takes responsibility and can maintain meaningful and healthy relationships with others.


Don’t be a good parent, be a brilliant parent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read 28 Aug 2009
By Angie B
I initially bought this book for my neice who is always open to ideas to enhance her parenting skills. However, after reading the introducton I decided to read if for myself first and I am very glad I did. Not only did I learn some wonderful techniques on how to build relationships with your children and offer them strategies that will give them skills they can retain throughout their lives, but I also leaned a great deal about myself. How easy it is to break a child's confidence and make them feel worthless, something some of us have carried thoughout our lives.

Learning and adopting just ONE of the techniques in this outstanding book will make such a difference to both you and your children's future and I urge anyone with children, regardless of age to read this book.

Additionally, the techniques in this book can be adapted and are relevant to adults in their daily lives and have the potential to enhance your relationships in the work place, with family, friends and anyone else who enters your life.

Brilliant Parent has been constructed and written in a very accessible way and is jargon-free. Brilliant Parent is a Brilliant Book, well worth a read. Needless to say my neice loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars helping to understand adolescent boys 11 Aug 2009
This book really helped me find a way to communicate with my suddenly hormonal son, who has transformed from a lively chatter box to a sullen teenager. Brilliant Parent has shown me ways to ask him questions and talk to him in a way, that doesn't result in him raising his eyes to heaven and giving me one word responses. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars How to actually ENJOY being a parent! 30 July 2009
Full of intelligent common sense, this book bangs out clever and helpful advice. I loved 'Flying Start', but 'Brilliant Parent' brings Emma's advice into much sharper focus, making the strategies simpler to apply - and they really do work. Parenting is like making profiteroles - once you've learnt the best, most useful tips and techniques, it's marvellous fun producing a fantastic result....Emma is the Nigella of parenting!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant....and it works!! 19 Oct 2010
When you have a 7 year old who doesn't listen and a 5 year old who thinks they own the house, then this book is for you.

In fact, this book if for anyone who either needs help addressing a situation with their child / children or for someone who simply wants to be able to understand their children better.

For me personally the book has allowed me to truly understand my children better so that I'm able to question them and learn to understand how they think, which ultimately brings better results for everyone.

Go out and buy it, you won't be disappointed.
