How Not to F*** Them Up | [James Oliver]

How Not to F*** Them Up

As a mother, are you comfortable in your skin? Want to know how best to be a working or stay-at-home mum? Babies have very simple needs, yet many parents are overwhelmed with elaborate advice on how to meet them. In How Not to F*** Them Up leading child psychologist Oliver James argues that your under-threes do not need training; it's getting your head straight as a parent that's important. Drawing on extensive interviews and the latest clinical research, James identifies three basic types of mum: the Hugger, the Organiser, and the Fleximum.

    "This book seems to be aimed the middle class."

    I could rant about this book, but lets just keep it simple. They need to change the title of this book to: "i'm wealthy! heres my personal sob story of finding the right hired help while i return to work just for fun". Guess that would've sold any books to people like me who brought it thinking it would be something original and mentally stimulating.
