about

You want to be a ‘good’ mother. You want to have confidence in your mothering skills and abilities. You wants to know you're doing the right thing, that your children will grow up to be happy, confident, with high self-esteem, and robustness of emotional resilience. The great news is that good enough really is good enough, and you don’t need to be the perfect mother.

In this collection of interviews with a wide range of mums and experts, Sherry Bevan demonstrates how simply being fully present with your child in the early years will nurture your child’s development, both emotionally and intellectually.
