Format: Paperback
This book is indispensable for anyone with (or interacting with) bright and challenging children. From the first page it's clear that the authors know their stuff and have a great deal of experience with such children and give excellent, solid advice for coping with a great range of situations that most parents of 'B&C' children have to face.

Absolutely essential reading, I'd recommend it to anyone.

They say that kids don't come with instruction manuals but Gill Hines and Alison Baverstock have created a support guide for those tricky tween years that often get ignored by the experts. This is a follow up to their guide on parenting teens, 'Whatever' and like that book is full of tried and tested advice and ideas for the bright and challenging child of 8-12. Brilliant as a reference book for parents, invaluable for those teaching them.

It's Not Fair is a book about raising children. It was written by Gill Hines and Alison Baverstock. Dr Baverstock is a published author and a senior lecturer on the Publishing MA at Kingston University. Kingston University is a public research university located in Kingston upon Thames, southwest London, United Kingdom. It was originally founded in 1899 and became a university in 1992. Campuses are located in Kingston and Roehampton. She divides her time between writing and teaching roughly 50:50, although the activities are mutually reinforcing. Gill Hines is a freelance Education and Parenting Consultant, trainer, and author covering many aspects of Health and Wellbeing Education including Sex and Relationships Education.

Although my daughters are young adults now, I am in touch with parents who have children of all ages, and I am always interested in reading current recommendations. As I read it, I wished I had had access to the advice when my girls were younger. The subtitle of this book is, 'Parenting the bright and challenging child' and I am sure I would have found it extremely useful.

The 'bright and challenging' children described in this book are defined as being 'smart , sassy and sparky, with just a hint of precociousness. At best, they have an unshakeable self-belief; at worst, a touch of arrogance.' There are further explanations of what is meant by this category of child, who is rather different from the dreamy, perceptive and rather disorganised 'spirited' one.

A bright and challenging child is very testing to his or her parents. Although being bright does not necessarily mean that the child is highly academic, or that they will do well in school, although of course the child may be extremely intelligent.
