Publisher's Summary

Parental as Anything is a common-sense guide to raising happy, healthy kids - from toddlers to tweens - from best-selling author Maggie Dent.

How much screen time should you let your children have? How and when do you talk about sex? What can you do when your kid throws a tantrum? Why should you let your children just play?

Maggie Dent, queen of common-sense parenting, has answers to your real-world parenting dilemmas.

Focusing on the most engaged-with topics from her popular ABC Parental as Anything podcast, Maggie tells us what the experts have to say, relates the experiences of other parents and offers her own reassuring guidance to provide practical solutions to the challenges parents and caregivers face today.

This book will give you the means to be the parent you'd like to be and help you in your quest to raise happy, healthy, thriving, resilient children.

Brilliant!

I wish this was around before my first child was born.
However, it has given myself some great tools to ensure that I only improve on my future parenting.

Amazing parental hacks

An amazing book. A gold mine of parental tips. However, I do wish the reading skills of the author are as great as her knowledge in the area of parenting. I did struggle following theiugh and slept while listening a few times.
