3.0 out of 5 stars Took 2 months to receive
By Sharon D. on 8 October 2021
Disappointed that it took 2 months.
I did not realise it was coming from India so that's probably my fault for not reading properly. The book was damaged and had black ink on it because it was wrapped in newspaper, disappointing as is to be a gift

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of huge realisations and moments of insight
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 March 2019
I thought this book was superb but more than that, after about ten minutes I felt it was already changing my behaviour! My friend who recommended it said the same.
Perry lays out her methods and thoughts very gently, with lots of good examples from real life, little case studies; but it’s the insights which really help. Looking at WHY we lose our rag about certain trigger bits of parenting - going back to our own childhoods and looking at why - OH MY GOD. Brilliant.
There’s also so much help here about FIXING those situations once you as the parent have cocked up. Rupture / repair, as she puts it.
And also advice on how to manage your parental situations better. When your kid says look at this, LOOK AT IT. I know that sounds sort of obvious but often I will say “hang on a sec I’m making dinner” etc. I feel like from now on I will do that differently because it doesn’t take two seconds to run and look. And the response you get is ♥️
I found it readable, funny, thoughtful, insightful, but most of all INCREDIBLY useful and, very very very rare for a book, genuinely life-changing.
