When family life has become a struggle, this book can show exhausted, demoralised parents the way back to having fun together, while repairing damage and building trust in their wounded child in the process.
Sally Donovan, author of The Unofficial Guide to Adoptive Parenting and Billy Bramble and The Great Big Cook Off
Written in a helpful, kind and practical way that doesn't make you feel as though you need to be a super-parent 24/7. As the authors say, Theraplay is about giving hope and increasing joy and their book does that with bubbles, feathers and face paints on.
