With straight-talking advice from renowned psychotherapist Philippa Perry, this is the definitive guide for any parent looking to navigate their past, avoid repeating their own parents' mistakes and ensure they don't land their own kids in therapy. Through the combination of case studies, her own experiences as a parent, and therapeutic insight gained from a career spanning over 20 years, Perry tackles the wider issues of what it actually means to be a parent rather than getting bogged down in the little details.

This book was not for me. It points out some obvious things about parenting which is useful. However I found the tone of the book condescending even though the overall message of the book is not to judge yourself .

She was selected to take part in the BBC series Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts, which saw her live and work alongside Indian factory workers making clothes for the UK high street. This sparked her series of hugely popular investigations.

Stacey’s book is much like her it’s compassionate non biased and completely honest . Some of the stories are horrific and hard to listen to but they are also a stark reminder of how different our worlds can be. Excellent book. Really enjoyed it as it is informative and educational.
