  • LITTLE SOLDIERS

    In 2009, Lenora Chu, her husband Rob, and toddler Rainer, moved from LA to the Chinese megacity Shanghai. The US economy was spinning circles, while China seemed to be eating the planet’s economic lunch. What’s more, Shanghai teenagers were top in the world at maths, reading and science. China was not only muscling the rest of the world onto the sidelines, but it was also out-educating the West.

    So when Rainer was given the opportunity to enroll in Shanghai’s most elite public kindergarten, Lenora and Rob grabbed it. Noticing her rambunctious son’s rapid transformation – increasingly disciplined and obedient but more anxious and fearful – Lenora begins to question the system. What the teachers were accomplishing was indisputable, but what to make of their methods? Are Chinese children paying a price for their obedience and the promise of future academic prowess? How much discipline is too much? And is the Chinese education system really what the West should measure itself against?

  • HAPPY MUM, HAPPY BABY

    Being a mum is an incredible journey, a remarkable experience that changes how we look, how we feel, who we are. As mothers we are strong, protective, proud. We feel a love like no other.

    But being a parent can be hard too. It challenges us physically, mentally, emotionally. There are the days where just managing to fit a shower in amidst the endless feeding, entertaining young children and surviving on a lack of sleep feels like an achievement. With so many people ready to offer ‘advice’ on the best way to parent, it can feel like you are getting it all wrong.

    This is not a book about how to have the perfect family experience – Gi would be the first to admit she is winging it just as much as the rest of us – instead it is an honest, upbeat and incredibly personal account of her own experience of having a family. In Happy Mum, Happy Baby Giovanna shares her own journey through parenthood and in doing so, she looks at what it is to be a mother today, encourages you to be confident in yourself as a parent and celebrates how putting a focus on being a happy and confident mum can really make for a happy baby.

  • THE GENTLE DISCIPLINE BOOK

    Discipline is a vital part of child-rearing, but many parents misunderstand how to use it and attempt to control their child’s behaviour via a combination of punishment and motivation. Yet while this traditional approach may appear to produce quick results, it can potentially damage the child and, in the long-term, leave parents with a far worse problem than they had initially.

    The Gentle Discipline Book analyses common ‘discipline’ techniques and explains why so many are ineffective. It focuses on helping parents understand why children misbehave and how to respond in a way that will help them work with – rather than against – their child. Gentle discipline focuses on teaching and learning, rather than punishing. With plenty of practical advice and case studies from real families, it will enable parents to set boundaries and enforce them with compassion and respect; demonstrates how parents can inspire children to be better and do better; and how to set a great example for them. Gentle parenting is not about being a pushover – it means understanding children and having realistic expectations of them, as well as responding appropriately and consistently.

  • DUMMY: PARENTING FOR THE INEPT AND THE CLUELESS

    The night before Charlie was born I had this dream. I dreamt that I was a soldier, riding into battle … completely naked, and on the back of a large, inflatable duck.’

    Matt Coyne’s life was turned upside down by the arrival of his first child, Charlie. After three months of fatherhood, he logged on to Facebook and shared his experience of being newly responsible for ‘a furious, sleep-murdering, unstable and incontinent, breasts-obsessed midget lodger’. Within days, his post had gone viral – and Matt is now a hero for parents everywhere, through his popular blog: ‘Man vs. Baby’.

    Dummy is no average parenting book. It’s packed with completely impractical, hands-on advice for the inept mum or dad – stuff you just won’t find in any baby manual or guide: ‘Profanity Bingo’ for labour; a categorisation of various nappy disasters; how to counteract the baby plank manoeuvre, and much more. But it is also a story of how becoming a parent is a kind of beautiful insanity. A thing that changes you.

    Above all, Dummy will keep you laughing like a broken lunatic through the exhaustion, the mystery and the madness of bringing up your own children.

    This is the parenting book for real people.

  • GROW!: PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR PARENTS

    Trevor Silvester is a Harley Street therapist and author of Lovebirds who is revolutionising the way we understand human nature.

    Grow! is a distillation of over 2 years of experience as a therapist applied to the task of raising happy children.

    Your children develop primarily in response to your influence, says Trevor. Writing with wonderful wit and clarity, he shows why parents need to nurture their own personal growth so their children can grow to become who they want to be. He shows how parents can overcome their own limitations so they don’t pass them onto their children, and how best to guide the young toward becoming strong, resilient and fulfilled adults.

    Trevor identifies two ways of being in the world; we’re either in a state of growth or a state of protection, and he argues that our interpretation of childhood events, and modern culture, often needlessly trigger us into a state of protection, leaving us anxious, fearful and unwilling to live life fully. Grow! describes strategies for keeping us, parents and children, in a state of growth.

    Using eight parenting mantras to guide you, he shares valuable lessons gained from the latest scientific research, as well as many hours in the therapy room. Incorporating them into your parenting will improve your child’s wellbeing enormously. Incorporating them into your life will improve everything.

    To assist in making these new ideas habitual in the shortest space of time, Trevor has also created a series of downloads for you to listen to, using principles of unconscious influence that have been proven to work.
