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.

It’s never too late to read this book. I loved the wrter’s openess and so refreshing that she was the wonderful narrator. Her style is so genuine. I can’t say I regret the parenting decisions I made which she disagrees with but generally her advice is invaluable and I’ve already had wonderful chats with my teenage son and have managed to display my appreciation and live to my normally demanding and oft troublemaking middle son. Thank you!
