Lovable Liam

Affirmations for a Perfectly Imperfect Child

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Liam is lovable even when he whines and won't eat his dinner. When people are cross with Liam, they still love him. Being cross will only last a minute. Love will last forever!All children require discipline and boundaries. They need to be taught manners, traditions, morality and social conduct. With all these constant lessons and corrections, children can sometimes be left feeling overly criticised or unloved. Lovable Liam takes a moment to honour a child for who he is. It reminds parents to let their child know they are wonderful and precious, deeply valued by friends and family, even when people are cross with them. Vibrant, colourful and lively, this book's positive messages and advice are ideal for young children wanting to understand how relationships work.

She has three children of her own, Morgon, Jamie and Liam, all of whom present with their own set of joys and challenges. The Lovable Liam series was created for her youngest son, to help teach some of the social and verbal skills that so often eluded him.
