Nothing can be as important as our children. They are the future of our families and the world. How they grow up will depend not just on the love parents and family members give them, or how much money is spent on them. What also matters is how everyday situations are tackled. and how informed their parents are. Yet the pressures of everyday life can make the simplest of situations seem difficult. And adults tend to forget their own childhood. Its trials and its joys. Didn’t you like it when your dad hugged you? Or when your mum encouraged you to paint or study algebra? or when you made new friends? How do you make a child excel? what is fatherhood? or motherhood? Why does a child fall sick often? Can you raise your child’s IQ? These are some of the issues that this book aims to discuss. It covers parenting in the most intimate and informed way.
