The Primary Book Club's selection for the 2016-17 school year.
This book discusses the parenting approach with being protective as well as exposing our children to the important lessons of childhood. Disappointments, rejections and criticisms are actually opportunities in disguise. It is about allowing children to suffer the consequences of their mistakes to become happy and successful adults. The book has practical advice and propses a gentle but vital shift in the way we parent, to step back and trust our children and allow them to experience the joy of succeeding on their terms rather than ours.
