Although I’ve been using NLP with parents, children and teens for many years, most people only really know about Neuro Linguistic Programming in the workplace context and wonder how it works as a parenting skill. Whilst the jargon may be acceptable and possibly even welcome at work, all the NLP jargon that most books use will be really off-putting as a parent. That’s why I’ve written the book. I have set out to make the content as approachable as I can and write as one parent to another giving you plenty of real and personal examples of situations I have encountered as a mum of four children and shown you how NLP can help in those scenarios.

As you’ll see from the contents list, the book covers lots of different situations you will experience as a parent whether your child is still a baby or whether they are teenagers. There are plenty of exercises to do and things to think about, quizzes and examples.
