There’s been a revolution in the family; it’s now all about the kids. Our homes are overrun with their toys and our diaries packed with their schedule of social and educational activities. We’ve lost control and we don’t know how to redress the balance. Thankfully, we’ve moved on from the days of children being forced to sit at the dinner table until they’ve eaten every scrap of overcooked cabbage, but we’re now plagued with the worry of ending up with ‘that child’ – the one running amok in shops and classrooms. This book combines newer and traditional childrearing methods and applies a common sense ‘best of both worlds’ approach – one that works in the modern world for modern families. In this manifesto of new old-fashioned parenting there’s no pandering, no spoiling, and definitely no dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets at dinner time.
