How to Be a Calm Parent: Lose the guilt, control your anger and tame the stress - for more peaceful and enjoyable parenting and calmer, happier children too

Pre-order Sarah Ockwell-Smith's indispensable guide to more peaceful and enjoyable parenting

How to Be a Calm Parent is part self-help book, part parenting book; aimed at parents who know that they need to be calmer to raise well adjusted, happy children, but who struggle with their own emotions and stress levels.

How to Be a Calm Parent will include twelve chapters, each with important takeaway messages and exercises for parents to practice, to make a real and tangible change in their parenting.

Topics the book will cover include:
*Understanding your triggers and making peace with your own childhood.
*Why it's OK to be 'good enough' and why you should embrace your own failures.
*Guilt and why it gets in our way of better parenting
*The mental load of parenting - why we need to understand the pressure and share it more.
*Why 'busy' is not a badge to aim for
*Communicating with partners and wider family - why your adult relationships impact those with your child.
*Why all parents need a support network (and how to let them go if you find yourself in one that's not for you).
*Balancing work and home life
*How to tackle life transitions with grace and ease.
*The four physiological corners of calmer parenting - eating well, sleeping well, moving well and resting well.
*Self-kindness - why the pressure of self-care can be so damaging and why we need a new approach.
*How to not throw your own tantrums and what to do if you do.
