Each week day morning the Trisha show consistently brings in the highest audience rating for its time slot. The magic ingredients are regular people with everyday family troubles and Trisha's no-nonsense, common sense approach to how her guests might take positive steps to help themselves. This book takes you through all the challenges, choices and changes that are faced within the family and includes: Losing and choosing a partner - are you making the same mistakes over and over? Being a parent - what kind of parent do you really want to be? Step-families - is the Brady Bunch just a bunch of lies? Fighting fair - can you deal calmly and effectively with conflict? Trisha is no stranger to the trials and tribulations of family life. Her sister committed suicide and she also went through a time of very serious depression herself. She has learnt the hard way how to put her family first and contributes much of her own fascinating personal story to this very positive and helpful book, alongside her husband Peter Gianfrancesco, who is a chief executive for the mental health charity MIND, and many other real-life success stories which highlight the issues throughout. The book also includes expert help and advice from psychologist Dr. Terri Van Leeson. There are lots of exercises and quizzes throughout. It is full of Trisha's humour and is as direct as she is to her guests. This is the book that helps you focus not just on yourself but also those around you.
