August Book of the Month

The Science of Parenting by Margot Sunderland

The Science of Parenting

The Science of Parenting is a thought-provoking and controversial book offering practical parenting techniques for parents at each age and stage of their baby's development to ensure that their child is psychologically well adjusted and emotionally healthy.

The book includes advice and strategies, from anxiety-proofing your baby to solving poor sleeping patterns while using picture stories, real-life images and anecdotes to illustrate points. It re-examines popular childcare tactics and offers alternatives on how today's brain research can lead to happy, emotionally balanced children.

One parent who has read this book said:

"This is one of the best parenting books available. It uses brain science to show that attentive, gentle parenting is absolutely essential to a child's development and mental health, both presently and in the future."

The Science of parenting, along with all the other books from our Book of the Month series are available to borrow from our resource library. Pop in to our offices on Constitution Street or email for more information.
