When a child is born parents feel on top of the world, but stress and exhaustion can soon take over, leaving nerves frayed. In this concise, practical book Christiane Kutik highlights twelve simple steps for bringing some peace, composure and enjoyment back into everyday family life.

She bases her approach on providing a solid underlying structure to family life, with clear roles, rules, routine and respect. She goes on to show how your family can grow together through incorporating enjoyable rituals, being responsive to your children, giving them the support they need and the space to develop their own abilities.

She discusses ways to introduce moments of calm and spiritual connection into everyday life. She also stresses the importance of parents trying to make a little time for themselves to reflect on life and relax.

This is a book written specifically for parents with no time and little energy -- short, easy-to-absorb and easy-to-implement steps to quickly improve family life.
'If I had to choose just one book to give to a new parent then Christiane Kutik's book would be at the top of my list. This short book manages to pack in a huge amount of clear information and practical help in a format that makes it easily accessible to a tired, and perhaps rather desperate, parent I think this little book would make a difference to the lives of many families who may be sailing in troubled waters.'--Mouna Hayes, New View, Autumn 2010
