Psychologist Dr Natalie Flynn has examined all the research on key baby topics such as feeding, sleeping and crying. The result? Smart Mothering, a revolutionary book that separates the facts from the opinions.
Find out what research says about the dilemmas so many parents face: What if I can’t breastfeed? Is it best to feed on demand? Can I leave my baby to cry? Should I vaccinate my baby? Is bed-sharing a good idea? Natalie provides the answers to these questions and many more.
Smart Mothering is objective, accessible and practical. With helpful tips, succinct summaries and clear diagrams it demystifies the often confusing and overwhelming world of parenting. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to make informed decisions about how best to care for their baby.
Our Boys is a positive, practical, down-to-earth guide that outlines what makes boys tick, describes their development from babyhood to childhood to manhood, and is full of great ideas and suggestions.
Each chapter focuses on a different age group – the first four years, 4 to 7, 8 to 11, 12 to 17, and 18-plus – detailing how boys grow physically, emotionally and developmentally throughout these stages.
Ruth Kerr and Richard Aston have been working with boys for 13 years, matching fatherless boys with male mentors and running a highly successful programme called Big Buddy that helps boys grow and develop into fine young men.
They have distilled the wisdom they’ve gained from working with hundreds of Big Buddy boys and men, as well as from parenting their own children and grandchildren.
