Parenting is Child's Play

How to Give Your Child the Best Start in Life - and Have Fun Doing it



Child psychologist David Coleman's TV debut, Families in Trouble, in spring 2006 was a huge popular and critical success

In his popular and critically acclaimed RTÉ series, Families in Trouble, David Coleman showed stressed parents how to figure out ways of helping their children and themselves.

Now, in Parenting in Child's Play, he focuses on the first six years of growing up. Though babies don't come with a rule book attached, that doesn't mean that bringing them up isn't a game. And while parenting is both a challenge and a huge responsibility, if you know the rules of the game, it's also a lot of fun!

Parenting is Child's Play explains the basic gist of the game of raising children. On everything from eating and sleeping, to discipline and being a working parent, Parenting is Child's Play will help you to develop your own rules for playing the game. Crucially it will also help you to recognize those times - far more frequent than you might realize - when it's OK to sit back, relax and leave your child alone.
