When I was asked if I would like to read a new parent book I have to say I was sceptical because I have read quite a few over the years since becoming a parent and even before that when i was working as a Nanny and I never really found them that useful.
A short summary what the book is about:
Deal with everyday parenting challenges without confrontation or anger.
Help children to become happy, fulfilled and self-reliant adults.
Maintain a strong and loving connection with children throughout their lives.
Agree on a balanced and more enjoyable approach to parenting.
Here is what the Authors Nadim & Carol Saad say:
"As a couple, we wanted to find a solution to the endless arguments about how best to parent our three children. Like many families we were torn between the gentler “laissez-faire” approach and the more disciplinarian “tiger mum” philosophy. Yet what we really wanted was a way of parenting that could fit with our two different personalities, allowing us to parent in harmony, raising children who could grow to be happy and fulfilled adults.
We found that so many parents relate to our story that we decided to create simple and effective tools that would help us work better as a team and to make parenting more fun and enjoyable."
The competition is open to UK Residents only and will close at 11.59pm on the 3rd of April 2015.

Last Month we had a exiting delivery for non other then Finn himself and he even did a happy dance when i told him that the parcel is for him.
The lovely Joie Ladies send Finn the Trillo Caraseat to test out:
Assembling the Car seat was done in less then 10 minutes with the step by step instructions and it was equally easy to anchor the seat to our ISOFIX connection points.
Here are some important Facts about the Car seat:
Forward facing from 15-36kg
ISOSAFE connectors which fit the seat to the vehicles's ISOFIX connection points
7 position height adjustable headrest
Comes with side impact protection
Well-marked colour-coded installation paths
2 tuck away cup holders
Size: l 55 x 38.5 x h 68.5cm (with the highest height going up to 83cm)
The Car seat weighs 5.9kg is classified as Group 2/3 with 15-36kg
What we thought about the Trillo Car seat:
Having used our new car seat for well over a month now we think its brilliant.
It fits perfectly into the seat and the connectors stay in place.
Finn told me that he is very comfortable in his new seat and his favourite feature is defiantly
the double cup holders where he hides his little toys (and forgets about them!) if not in use
with a drinking cup.
I like the fact that the fabric is fully removable for easy washing in case of a accident and i love the
2 coloured fabric which gives it a nice stylish look.
The fabric itself is not only super soft its also breathable which will be great for the summer and unlike our last model it has much more padding which makes long distance journey in the car much more comfortable for my little rider.
The Seat itself feels really sturdy and together with the sides and head rest my mind is at ease knowing that Finn will have protection from head to hips when we are driving.
With our old car seat Finn barely fallen asleep and if he did then his head was titling forward most of the time. But with the Trillo having a large headrest those problems are a thing of the past and i am happy to know that he will be safe and snug when falling asleep.
The Trillo booster car seat from Joie has a RRP: of £79.99 but there are always deals and promotions online if you shop around.
