WIN: A copy of Philippa Perry's new bestseller, The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read

It might just help you to improve your relationship with your children.

LIKE MOST PARENTS, you probably want your relationship with your child to be as healthy as it can be – but perhaps you aren’t quite sure how to achieve that goal.

If so, you’re going to want to take a look at The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read.

Written by psychotherapist Philippa Perry, the book is about the sometimes fulfilling, sometimes frustrating ties between parents and kids – “relationships with our children, what gets in the way of a good connection and what can enhance it.” You can read an extract right here.

The book was published on March 3 and has already hit the top of the Sunday Times’ bestseller list. Perry, who has one adult daughter herself, says:

I wrote the book I wish I had read as a new parent, and I really wish my parents had read it.

We have three copies of The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (And Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did), published by Penguin, to give away.
