A Mind of Their Own

The difficulty our children face is how to navigate the complex world of the 21st century. In A Mind of Their Own, Katharine Hill discusses the important ways in which parents can nurture their children’s resilience and emotional wellbeing. Honest and practical, with tried and tested strategies, it covers key areas including body confidence, dealing with failure and disappointment, school and exam stress, social media, bullying and handling strong emotions. This is a roadmap which acknowledges the pandemic of 2020 but goes beyond that, offering support for the challenges which have been faced for decades prior.

This book could not be more timely. I believe it to be one of the most important parenting books of our time. If you are a parent, carer, or work with children in any capacity, I would urge you to read it.
