From the Back Cover
As any parent of a school-age child knows, daily life with a 411-year-old is never dull. The parenting trials come thick and fast. Just as you think youve sorted out one thorny little issue, along comes another to test your wits and your patience.
These pages are packed full of useful advice and information on a whole range of topics. Youll discover what other parents have done and benefit from the wisdom of child psychologists and other experts, for issues such as:
· friendships, falling out and bullying
· horrid habits and bad behaviour
· bedtime battles and sleepovers
· homework and how many hobbies
· food fads and mealtime misbehaviour
· screen time and safety
· pocket money, presents and parties
· telling lies and dealing with fears
· growing up and going out
If you want to be prepared for anything and stay in control when behaviour becomes bothersome, this is the book for you.
