If You Forget Everything Else, Remember This - 2nd Edition
Parenting in the Primary Years
"Remember This oozes wisdom, practical help, and above all, understanding."
--Rob Parsons, OBE, founder and chairman of
Care for the Family
From that first angelic role in the nativity play and that first playground love, to cut knees and scuffed shoes, to school bullies and World Book Day costume design, life as a parent in the primary years is an emotional roller coaster. Amid the practical chaos of finding swimming goggles, packing lunches, cleaning out the hamster cage, and refereeing sibling squabbles over screen time, many of us long for some help or a little wisdom to get us through.
Here is that help. A brand-new edition brimming with sayings, cartoons, and stories in bite-sized chapters help navigate this challenging season of parenting and family life, and reassure parents that they're not alone; someone else struggles with feeling judged, with knowing when to act and when to "count to ten," and someone else also accidentally killed Finny the class goldfish over Christmas break (and the class will never know the difference).
So encourage parents to grab a cup of coffee and a doughnut, wipe the glitter off the table, and if they forget everything else as a parent, they can remember this . . .
