Parents, teachers, carers – whatever our role in a child’s life, we all want them to thrive.


There are many moments of joy in our relationships with our children: but what about those times we’re faced with defiance, disruption and seemingly endless cycles of negativity? Miserable for the child and exhausting for those around them – and almost all completely avoidable. From everyday frustrations to more extreme manifestations, these behaviours may present differently but they are all rooted in one common thread: a need for emotional safety. When a child feels secure and truly heard, their behaviour is transformed.


Marie Gentles draws on her decades of expertise supporting children across the behavioural spectrum, along with their parents and teachers, to show us how to establish positive relationships that bring out the best in our children.
