Parenting a Violent Child – The Book


For many years my colleague Islay Jane Ashe and I have become increasingly aware of the issue of Child to Parent violence in our work. This has previously been a taboo subject and silence keeps the violence hidden. Our book ‘Parenting a Violent Child’ addresses this issue by following six parents through a journey of self awareness.

Here are some reviews;

“I was pleasantly surprised to discover that a book like this existed! I don’t think any parent likes to admit if their losing control of their children, but this book certainly addressed a number of questions I’ve had about my child’s behaviour and how to manage/take control of the situation. I love the ‘real life’ examples and highly recommend this book to any parent regardless of the child’s behaviour.”

“I am a counsellor and downloaded this book to help me in my work. I’m very taken by the authors’ approach (‘Put down the magnifying glass’ – i.e. stop focusing on your CHILD’S behaviour – and pick up the mirror – i.e. look at your OWN behaviour), and think it is offers a potentially life-changing shift of focus for many, many parents and carers. Highly recommended to all parents and anyone working with children/families!”
