Summary Gentle parenting is mainstream, accessible and backed by science. It is parenting with empathy, respect, understanding and boundaries. In The Gentle Parenting Book, Sarah Ockwell-Smith provides a trustworthy combination of 'what to expect' type information and gentle parenting solutions to the most common challenges faced by parents of young children. Sarah addresses a wide variety of topics including: coping with crying babies; introducing solid foods and creating healthy eating habits; potty training; starting nursery; starting school; coping with homework; coping with bullying; sibling rivalry; tantrums; whining; sulking; aggressive behaviour and much more. In addition the book provides much needed comprehensive information on how to change to a more gentle parenting style for those parents who may have previously been using a more authoritarian style.
