It’s about getting some ideas and taking control in a world that has been turned upside down and shaken so that you can’t interact with the most wonderful person your child can be. It’s about playing and painting (generally yourself) and dancing and laughing with your child, so that you can be not just furniture to them but Mummy or Daddy. It’s about Hope and how to get, with some laughs (and a lot of shaving cream) along the way.
It’s a book for when you are out of ideas and overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. It gives step by step guides to the things that we did to get from a non-verbal, non-interactive, isolated screaming forever toddler to a bright, chatty, intelligent child with friends. It isn’t about cures it’s about creating coping systems through play and balance. It’s about being your child’s therapist, mum, friend, advocate and not getting burnt out (daily).
