The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read

Philippa Perry

Overview

Being a parent requires the management of so many daily challenges – changing diapers, packing lunches, containing tantrums – that it can be easy to lose sight of the big picture. The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did) allows us to take a bird's eye view of parenting to examine what we truly want for our children and our relationship with them.

Psychotherapist and author Philippa Perry takes a warm and compassionate approach to parenting. Perry believes that empathy and better communication lead to less contentious relationships with our kids and ultimately improve their well-being.

Drawing from her own experiences as a parent, covering subjects such as household environments, discipline styles, and boundary setting, Perry shares personal anecdotes and provides exercises for putting the ideas into practice.
