Product description


As a parenting support book this is in a class of its own in terms of the accessible wisdom and pragmatic help it provides. It is perhaps the most helpful book for parents of children of any age. Written by a great communicator, it will have massive impact ― Professor Peter Fonagy, CEO Anna Freud National Centre for Children & Families

Kate has devoted much of her emotional as well as her academic mind to develop her approach to being a nurturing and loving parent. This book reflects Kate's genuine passion about children's mental well-being ―
Dame Benny Refson DBE President Place2Be

Kate writes with humour and compassion, and without judgement, turning a potentially daunting subject into a personal one ―
Susan Cooke, Head of Research and Evidence, NSPCC

This book is absolutely brilliant! I love that it is about
parenting a healthy brain. It's wonderfully written, nicely laid out and with lots of practical advice and structure for parents to follow. It contains advice in there that even I would find useful to help my families in my practice with. It's everything you wish you'd known at beginning of being a parent and all the stuff we are just starting learn about brain development and the modern world. It is much needed and will be so helpful to parents everywhere ― Dr Guddi Singh, Paediatric Registrar, Guy's and St.Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust

In her incredibly creative exploration of the science of children's brain development, Kate Silverton has found a way to do what scientists themselves have often struggled to do: communicate that science to parents. Once you see the world through Kate's eyes - or more precisely, through the eyes of her lizard, baboon and wise owl - it will never look the same again. The personal stories she shares are the kind that other parents will find themselves remembering in moments of frustration, elation and helpless confusion. This is a book that will boost confidence and compassion.
This is a book that will change lives.Dr Suzanne Zeedyk, Infant Psychologist

There's No Such Thing As 'Naughty' features many top tips to restore harmony in the household. Kate uses lizards, baboons and wise owls to demonstrate her unique approach in a simple way, while anecdotes about her own experiences with her kids will ring true to mums and dads everywhere' ― Sunday Post

Book Description

An engaging, fun and warm guide for parents of 0-5 years olds that will completely redefine how we see and raise our children. This unique, groundbreaking book will explain why - for our under-fives - there is no such thing as 'naughty'.

Kate Silverton is a journalist, broadcaster and author of 'There's No Such Thing As Naughty'. As a mother to two young children and training to become a child psychotherapist Kate was astounded by what she was learning about brain development and how it shapes a child's behaviour. Kate set out to write a book that was enormously accessible yet helped parents to understand their children through the prism of their brain development. Not only that she wanted to write a book that would help parents to lay the foundations for their child's future good mental health. Kate is married to Mike, a former Royal Marines Commando and has a daughter, Clemency now 9 and a son, Wilbur who is 7. They have a dog named Gatsby and live in London.
