‘It is my sincere conviction that parents of all shades and creeds share a common bond: that of wanting the best for their children. It is also the right of every child to be raised with enough care to nurture mind, body and soul; so that each will grow up with the good sense of self-worth and a chance to realise their full potential.’ MARINA PETROPULOS
‘Marina highlights that each child is an individual, so we as parents get to know them in order to provide their particular needs. There is no single right way and Marina is very clear that we have to trust our knowledge of our particular children in order to help them grow up to be adults who can negotiate their way in life. This is a book to have always on one’s bedside table!’ Dr ALAN WOOD, Medical Journal.
‘This book is a veritable one-stop knowledge shop... Not only does it seem to cover every single, solitary, freaky, benign, apparently stupid or incredibly bright question a fuzzy-headed mother might find herself asking, but it does so in a calm, credible, non-judgemental and non-patronising tone... there are also the more tricky topics like the hopes we have for our children, and – very sensitively and sensibly dealt with – the issue of discipline... particularly useful are the handy grids to illnesses, their symptoms and when to see a doctor... ‘ KAREN SCHIMKE
‘This book provides an up-to-date, comprehensive and reliable, factual advice and help for parents and parents-to-be. I unreservedly recommend it.’ DR JOHN PEARN, Royal Children’s’ Hospital, Australia.
‘This book read beautifully – it is light, yet serious and thorough and up-to-date. A really marvellous guide and source of excellent information.’ Professor Astrid Berg, MB ChB, FC Psych (SA), MPhil (Child & Adolescent Psychiatry). Professor Berg is on the Board of Directors of the World Association for Infant Mental Health.
‘This book could be the best investment parents ever make...’ SUNDAY TIMES.
