I think I am in need of a ?refresher course?? I am not interested in books covering the baby phase, or books that focus on naughtly behavior, naughty corners or how to make sure your child eat well..

I want some to the point advice of helping DS (6) with being assertive (but without loosing his temper), how to handle friendship/playground issues, and generally how to help him grow with great of emotional intelligence.

For lots of people these things are natural, not for me. Can someone recommend a really good book/s I can read please?

The Contented Little B... nahhhhh, maybe not!

It's only just out, but Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids by Laura Markham is shaping up to be my favourite so far. You just read it going "yes, yes!" and welling up at parts, and I'm only on about page 20!

Amazingmumof6, not the Graham Chapman??!! :-D

The Incredible Years by Carolyn Webster Stratton is amazing! I have 4 years old twins but its focussed at ages 3-8
