"Parenting is intrinsically anxiety-making, and books such as Amy Chua’s much-bruited Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother don’t make things any easier, offering gruelling, pleasure-limiting discipline and a demand for particular forms of success. What horror will follow if little Olivia doesn’t make the ballet master class, or tiny Pierre the most eminent pre-nursery?

"From such dynamics are born life-long neuroses. Enter Susan Engel to calm you. The developmental psychologist (and mother) wants you stop worrying so much, stop trying to control your children’s development. She offers advice on how to recognize behaviours that need intervention and, just as important, those that don’t."
