If you want to learn more about how children think, this is a great starting point. It’s helped me to understand how to support my two daughters more, and there are lots of good ideas for things like managing behaviour. Very enjoyable – I’ve just applied to my local college to do a more advanced course.

Thank you to Gail for her support!
