The Parent's Toolkit by Naomi Richards
Created: 1 year(s) ago
The Parent’s Toolkit is the first book by Naomi Richards, the No1 coach for children in primary school age in the UK and a regular blogger on Mums Like You. Why is this parenting book different from all others we’ve read?
It’s packed with practical advice and techniques you can use for children as young as 6 years
It’s one of these books that you can’t put down once you start reading – it’s thoughtful, well written and illustrated with case studies from Naomi’s work. It’s situations like ‘What to do to boost your kid’s confidence’ or ‘How to help them handle their anger and frustration’ that will really get you thinking and taking notes
The book covers some really interesting aspects of parenting such as helping kids get on better with siblings, getting them to manage their feelings better or dealing with bullying at school. These are issues that a lot of parents face on a day-to-day basis (we hear a lot about it on our forum). ‘The Parent’s Toolkit’ offers parents the opportunity to take a step back and explore the roots of these problems and then suggests practical techniques to deal with them.
Our verdict: this book should be in every parent’s bookshelf
