What Every Parent Needs to Know

The incredible effects of Love, Nurture and Play on your child's development  (original title – The Science of Parenting)

This is the first practical parenting book to give you the facts, not the fiction on the best way to bring up your child, essential for any parent. Based on over 700 scientific studies into children’s development, award-winning author and child psychotherapist Dr. Margot Sunderland explains how to develop your child’s potential to the full.

This book will give you the know- how to understand and influence your child’s development whilst providing practical solutions to everyday challenges. Backed by solid evidence from the latest studies into the impact of parenting on children’s brain development, and the experiences of real families, Margot Sunderland explains the science without losing sight of the day –to day realities all parents and children face. If you are tired of parenting gurus telling you what to do without telling you why, this book is the answer.
