    A lovely gift for a mum-to-be would be this beautifully written and accessible book “Your Happy Child“. It is a guidebook for parents to help them repair or maintain their relationships as a family or specifically with their children. Written traditionally but in a way we can all relate to and with particular influences drawn from uniquely, blending the up-to-date theory of positive psychology, neuroscience, and holistic practices.

    Although equally useful for parents who have been ‘in the game a while’, this is a lovely book to help you understand parent-child relationships before you get there. A new parent could use this as a prevention tool and a way to gear them up for the role of being a parent.

    The author’s specialism in well-being and therapeutic work shines through in this book – a super tool for all parents!

    Usha Chudasama is a greatly experienced, talented, qualified and effective therapist. Such qualities are hard to distill in the covers of a book yet she has done an excellent job of capturing and sharing her model in a way parents can easily acquire. In a world where parents are increasingly aware of their impact on their child’s mental and emotional health, yet progressively disempowered by contradictory advice and demands on them, this book opens the way to parent and child enjoying life’s infinite experiences together. As Chudasama’s practice has grown, her method, borne of passion, study and intuition, has become more easily understood and applicable, yet adaptable to each person’s needs and strengths. These pages come from work with even the most difficult and painful cases and her ability to remain in the space of hope, love and fun is the heart of what brings these safe and life-changing practices to life.

    I am not a parent but have been closely involved with the children of friends and relatives, and have been working and volunteering in work with young people for many years. I hold the view that every child is the collective responsibility of all of us. My perspective of this excellent book by Usha Chudsama is that it should be widely read and bought for parents who want the best strategies for supporting their children through life. Some of my friends are past the stage where this book would have been extremely useful. I will make sure that other friends about to be parents or in the various stages of raising their children gain from both the wisdom and the really practical aspects of this book.

    I am certain that many parents wish there was a tried and tested manual to raising children especially in these challenging times.

    Well, here it is! Look no further than Usha Chudasama’s wonderful book ‘Your Happy Child’ which carries a special relaxing energy throughout as well as priceless aids and tools to help children to become happy and confident.

    Confidence is the underpinning to a happy, successful life. Skills learned at an early age are invaluable. Usha’s book is a precious gift to parents and to children. Heartfelt Congratulations, Usha!

    At a time when children are placed under ever-increasing stress and higher expectations than ever before, it’s crucial that they learn how to de-stress, how to deal with negativity from others (as well as their own internal voices), and how to feel good about themselves.

    Your Happy Child is an easy read with a clear map to help your children on their journey to personal happiness. The ten exercises (learned one week at a time) are easy to do both at home and in school settings and Usha walks you through everything you need to facilitate them. So whether you are helping one child, or a classroom of children, you will know that you are giving these children the tools that will last them a lifetime.

    I was interested in this book as both a parent of two children (7&9), as well as having a background in psychology. Not to mention that I do not want my own children to grow up with a more positive attitude than I did. I want to give them the tools to control their own thoughts and feelings and know how to turn a negative into a positive and not think that life and happiness is all or nothing.

    I’m now feeling more confident as a parent knowing that my children will soon be on their way to a happier childhood and adulthood. After all, the one thing every parent wants is to have a happy child.

    Usha has written an excellent book that gives useful and practical ideas for parents to work on with their children. The techniques are simple and well-explained, and make a real difference for both children and adults. The both is equally useful for primary school teachers, who will be able to benefit greatly from Usha’s insights. Highly recommended!
