“As a first-time mum with an overactive 3 year old, I was lost. My son’s behaviour was exhausting. I was fighting with my little boy every day. After reading all the advice my home is now a much quieter and happier place and I feel like I have some parent power back. I recommend this book to every parent”.
Natasha Adams – Newcastle, NSW
