The best book on parenting … brilliantly insightful.' The 'Guardian'

The best book on parenting... brilliantly insightful.' - Guardian

'I wish I'd had this book years ago - to show to bosses who didn't understand, to friends who couldn't grasp why I was permanently tired, and even to myself - to know that I wasn't the only one who wished for an extra eight hours in the day.' - Anne Diamond, television presenter, mother

'Naomi Stadlen writes with understanding, deep insight and humour. This is truly woman-to woman.' - Sheila Kitzinger, childbirth educator, mother

Have you ever spent all day looking after your baby or young child - and ended up feeling that you have 'done nothing all day'? Do you sometimes find it hard to feel pleased with what you are doing, and tell yourself you should achieve more with your time? Maybe it's because you can't see how much you are doing already.

In this unique and perceptive look at mothering, Naomi Stadlen draws on many years' work with hundreds of other mothers of a wide variety of ages and backgrounds. She explores mothers' experiences to reveal what they - and you - are doing when it may look, to everyone else, like nothing.
