Hi there,
I've got books about toddler taming, books about teenage understanding, but I don't have any books to help me with my eight year old. does anybody have any suggestions? I'd rather have a recommendation than browse Amazon.

you don't need a book. Just drink wine

There's a book called "Tweens" or "Tweenies", sorry not sure which, that is aimed at the 8-12 age group. Haven't read it (though I will when I get my self organised) and it has been recommended by a couple of friends and some on here too I think.

It's called 'Talking to Tweenies, getting it right before it gets rocky with your 8-12 year old' by Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer.
Someone on mumsnet recommended to me and I bought it and read it and it's very, very good.

Thanks everyone! Going to take the wine, and gin advice very seriously. But possibly on separate occasions!
