They're squealing for a packet of strawberry squiggles in the supermarket... refusing to put their coat on even though it's below freezing outside... squabbling over who gets the cup with the kangaroo on it... or running around with their pants on their head when they're meant to be putting their pyjamas on. Let's face it, life with kids can be exhausting and exasperating. Sometimes you can find yourself nagging, negotiating, battling and bellowing your way through the whole day. Surely it's not meant to be this hard, you think. Roll on bedtime! Here, in one little book, is everything you need to know to make your day-to-day life as a parent easier.
