Hiya Margaret, I've never responded to a review before but yours hit home so much that I felt like I had to thank you for your honesty regarding your relationship with your children. My daughter is 4 and although she is a sweet child she has her moments of intense whining, stubborness, and a complete lack of gratitude which really grates me because when I was growing up my mum couldn't afford to clothe me nicely or take me to new places and after a recent incident of me telling her off for being ungrateful she burst into tears and asked me why I don't love her anymore... I was absolutely heartbroken, and I'm now looking for inspiration on how I can try and handle things differently with her, hence why I'm now buying this book. I was beginning to think I was an absolutely awful mum and I just want to thank you for making me realise that we are only human afterall and that we all make mistakes and could do things better when it comes to our children. Your story is like a little happy ending and I too hope I can raise my daughter to be a delightful, happy, talented and inspired young woman.
Thanks again :)
