Summary

Take a proactive approach towards your child's mental health and discover how to have the conversations that will be lifesaving and life-changing.  

With a foreword by Benny Refson, President of the children's mental health charity Place2Be.

The pressures faced by children and adolescents today are unprecedented and the corresponding statistics around poor mental health deeply alarming. Behind every mental health issue, from addiction to ADHD, lies a host of underlying problems that need addressing, but as a worried parent it's hard to know where to focus. 

What do you do if your child struggles with anxiety? Is self-harming? Has developed an unhealthy relationship with eating, exercise, technology or alcohol?  

Proactive in approach, top addiction therapist Mandy Saligari provides the tools to help you identify and address the self-destructive patterns of behaviour, to stop them in their tracks. Her practical framework reveals how you can adapt your own behaviour and equip your child to develop emotional intelligence, resilience and self-esteem. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

If there’s only one book to read as a parent it’s this one!

Thank you Mandy for such a wonderful resource! I know this book has had a profound impact on how I approach certain situations with my children. It’s also enabled helpful self-reflection. The book is grounded in theory however this is made relatable and provides practical exercises and examples that we can put into practice. This book should be provided to all new parents! Thank you for helping me become a better parent. Much love x

I wish I'd had this book 45 years ago.

I would have married the right man, not the man that fit my then profile of a codependent, codependent on my alcoholic family structure and why I thought I needed their approval over my own (unknown) happiness. 42 years later, at least I'm waking up and understanding so many of the "but why did I do that...... "why did I think that if I was "good" I would be accepted by my parents .... God, I only hope and pray I haven't totally messed up my kids..... rebellion, yes, but I thought it was because we were just white trash, or boarder line trash.... , just a bunch of smart-mouth kids trying to sound tough.......... Mandi Salagari is a God-send and this book is so enlightening! I'm becoming my own friend and I will continue to listen to this and other works my Ms. Salagari. I can't thank her deep enough or praise her high enough. Sincerely.

Eye Opening Like Non Other

Listening to this book (purchased as audible download) has been a game changer for me. There are so many valuable points that I find it hard to narrow it down to just a quick review. But, instead of going on and on (as I'm prone to do), I'll simply say that this book is worth your time, worth your money and worth the positive changes that could result from following Mandy's earnest and warmly genuine advice.
