Format: Paperback
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.

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!

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.

Format: Paperback
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!
