Reviews

This book is full of useful tips for how to parent gently. Drawing on her own and others' experiences, and with her trademark forthright approach, Sarah Ockwell-Smith offers advice and guidance for parenting children in a way that encourages and enables them to grow and learn. While the book is aimed at parents with children from birth to age seven, much of what Sarah has to offer is also relevant for parents with older children, and for relationships in general. In particular, I found her suggestion that we should THINK before we respond to others - that is to consider whether what we have to say is True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary and Kind - to be pertinent, both within and beyond the sphere of parenting. -- Gill Rapley, PhD, co-author of Baby-led Weaning and the 'baby-led' series of parenting books What a lovely book! Sarah Ockwell-Smith uses the term 'gentle parenting' to encompass deep insights into the ways that parents can be responsive to the needs of children while maintaining their own inner balance. I love the way Sarah breaks the concept down into clear guidelines - without being strident about one right way to be a parent - and the way she addresses the challenge of shifting from mainstream parenting to more gentle ways. The world can be a harsh place; families don't have to be. -- Lawrence J. Cohen, PhD, author of Playful Parenting
