THE BOOK YOU WISH YOUR PARENTS HAD READ (And Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did)

by | Read by Philippa Perry

Personal Growth • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

A British psychotherapist offers accessible advice for parents whose children stir up out-of-proportion feelings that originate in the parent's own childhood. She's a reliable interpreter who narrates with compassion and an earnest desire to help listeners. The only narration weakness you can hear repeatedly is the forced-sounding emphasis she applies to important points--but it's a minor issue. She says not everyone experiences the surge of puzzling or unmanageable feelings that can occur at various stages of raising a child. For those who have those feelings, this is a warmly written and informative parenting primer. Along with enlightening examples from her practice, she offers a clear road map for understanding and calming such feelings, and a thoroughly intelligent lesson on the importance of secure emotional connections with our children.
