The Busy Parent
book club

Have you got parenting books which sit on the shelf unread? You have the best of intentions, but there never seems to be enough time or energy to sit down and really digest it all.

You know the content could be helpful, but actually getting it read is easier said than done.

This book club will help you get that book read and feel better equipped to support your child.

When you’re a busy parent it can be hard to find the time and headspace to read any book, let alone one which probably means a lot of thinking about how to apply it, or worse might make you feel guilty about all the things which haven’t gone right.

I get it! I have plenty of books which gather dust BUT I also know how much difference certain books have made to my parenting. This is why I’ve set up The Busy Parent Book Club.

Instead of an expectation to read a book a month you just sign up to:

  • Join 3 sessions

  • Run over 3 months

  • Reading 1 book


This round we will be looking at:

"The Yes Brain Child  - Help Your Child Be More Resilient, Independent and Creative" by Daniel J Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson. 

If you've got a child between the ages of 3-11 and you want to explore how you can help them take on new challenges and grow their resilience and confidence this is a must read.

  • Sunday 15th May  - 7:45pm-9pm

  • Sunday 5th June   - 7:45pm-9pm

  • Sunday 3rd July     - 7:45pm-9pm


What you need:

  • A copy of the book

  • A commitment to all 3 sessions

  • Access to zoom


The club cost just £9 which is only £3.00 per session. 

Who is this book club NOT for?

If you're looking for a book club which is super intellectual and where everyone has it all sorted this isn't for you! 

Who IS this book club for?

Parents who are constantly learning and want to explore, discuss and understand better how they can best support their child.
