In March, 2019, Tanith also published 'The Friendship Maze: How to help your child navigate their way to positive, happier friendships.' In this fearless book, Tanith brings together the latest social science on friendship to peel back the hidden mysteries of children’s social relationships. 'The Friendship Maze' addresses challenging issues like how do hierarchies form in classrooms, how to deal with bullying, why children and teens are more cliquey and more cruel than ever - and what are the best ways to help children who find it difficult to stay out of conflict or to make friends. Tanith's other parenting books include, Girls Uninterrupted, published in 2015, which is still the essential go-to book for parents who want to build stronger daughters in a challenging world. ‘Taming the Tiger Parent - How to put the Well-being of your Child First in a Competitive World’ was published by Constable/Little Brown. This was the first UK book to look at the bigger picture of what continual school testing is doing to our children and to offer help for parents on how to navigate this . It has since become a classic for parents wanting to step off the competitive merry-go-around for the well-being of their kids. It received wide spread coverage all over the world and has been called 'a book to re-orientate parenting' by author Steve Biddulph and 'well-balanced, well-argued and highly readable' by Sue Palmer, Author of Toxic Childhood.
