'This excellent book... is packed full of wisdom about this largely under-examined relationship. It informs parents who want to know how best to handle the differing needs of individual children, how to cope with competitiveness and rivalry, and the authors always prioritise the importance of emotional relationships. They don't just look at the needs of the children, but the needs of the parents as well.' -- NCT 'The mixture of personal experience, professional expertise and large helpings of humour make this a much needed and very accessible book for families' -- Vivienne Gross, Institute of Family Therapy FOR RAISING HAPPY CHILDREN 'Finally, a sensible, balanced and really useful handbook that tells you how to deal with children as they are, rather than as people would like them to be' -- Kate Figes 'I couldn't recommend it more highly' -- Mary McLeod, Childline
